It is a multi tier media assault with the television show coming to SyFy in April and also a MMO game being released around the same time from Trion Worlds for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. Both the game and show seem to be getting a lot of money and talent thrown at it so we are getting something of both style and substance. here is a new video giving you a closer look at the characters and vibe of the show.
