Defiance is a game developed by Trion Worlds and the SyFy channel.
The Earth was terraformed during a war with the an alien encounter. Now, both aliens and humans are working together to restore the world.
Installation through Glyph.
What does not
Game disconnects at times.
What was not tested
I could not get development Wine to work as the game would not connect at all. Using Wine-staging 1.9.23, the game connects and plays. It will disconnect from the server then you can click Try again to connect (sometimes a few times). I will need to test 1.9.11 that was mentioned as Platinum.

(12/9/2016) - Need to install Glyph now. Glyph installs well and works. As for Defiance, if using Wine-staging 1.9.23 it will work for a bit and give the connection to server failed mention. I caould play 9 or so minutes and put the video on my YouTube page.
