Events in the show will be reflected in the game, and major events in the game will affect the development of the show. While the game takes place in the San Francisco area, the show is set in the remains of what was once St. Louis. The world is the same, affecting one-another like events you see mentioned on the news.

As if that were not enough, the lines blur further with the animated Ark Hunter Chronicles, published by DefianceUniverse on the official Defiance YouTube channel. Follow Begbie and Drifter as they meet the mysterious Ark Hunter.


  • The Ark Hunter Chronicles are live on YouTube now.
