What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to build a great game with you. For the past year, we’ve had a dedicated group of Steam Early Access players influencing Dungeon Defenders II. These players have helped create a fun, rewarding core experience that we think you’ll love. We still have plenty of features to add and can’t wait for you to play and share your thoughts with us.

Our game has bugs, missing features, and balance work still to go. There will be no full wipes or resets. If there are balance or other issues we will deal with them in similar methods to other online games. Please only purchase access if you’re excited to play the game in this state!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect the game to remain in Early Access for at least a year after its initial release on Steam (Dec 2014). This enables you, our Steam Community, to Influence the game as we develop it, incorporating many of your ideas along the way.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Over the course of Early Access, we will be adding many features to Dungeon Defenders II. Improvements to the Item Enhancement & Hero Deck systems, an updated HUD, controller support, local splitscreen Co-Op, a new Social Tavern, and more are all on their way. We will also be adding a ton of content to the game -- new maps, bosses, build items, pets, and much more!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In Open Alpha, there are already hundreds of hours of gameplay in Dungeon Defenders II. There are four hero classes with tons of build items, skill spheres, and pets to customize them with. There are two regions of maps across eight difficulty modes available to play. There are also multiple gameplay modes including Campaign, Incursions, and Onslaught -- our version of Endless Survival.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Dungeon Defenders II is free supported by ethical in game purchases like costumes & cosmetic pets. These in-game purchases will NEVER GRANT GAMEPLAY ADVANTAGE. EVER. WE’RE SERIOUS!”

For supporting us early, you’ll receive a variety of exclusive goodies and in-game currency at very large discounts! Thank you for your support.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We believe great games are made with their community. We’ve had a dedicated group of community members influencing Dungeon Defenders II since our first vertical slice. We believe the core gameplay is a fun and rewarding experience thanks to these players, and we’re excited to get even more players involved in development!

We’ve also created the Influence System so players can directly vote on decisions we make for the game. The more you participate, the better the game will become! We’ve invested time to create this feature so you can help drive development forward in the right direction. Join us to see how DD2 grows under the Influence of the entire community.”

Trials Report #5 – On the Frontline

Greetings Defenders,

We’re on the home stretch now. There’s only six more days until Trials: The Endgame Update comes out. Alongside the community playtesting group, we're playing the hell out of the update to make sure we nail the endgame feeling we’re going for. We’ve made some modifications to the update, so some of our previously reported details have changed. Final details will be available on release day, but everything is really coming together now.

Today’s report comes from Prime Scout Atticus Scout -- yes, this report comes from Prime Scout Scout. We hope he gets that promotion so we don’t have to call him Prime Scout Scout anymore -- he’ll be Scoutmaster Scout:



Vanguards
“Prime Scout Scout here. I’ve been scouting all week, and scout’s honor, I’ve discovered a new enemy. These little guys walk about in packs, and the things I’ve seen their shields wipe out...no doubt, we’re gonna need to change strategy.

This has been a scouting report from Prime Scout Scout. Over and out.”

Reviews

“What Trendy seems to be developing is a guided missile aimed straight at every gamers pleasure centers. Four-player co-op? Check. Addictive tower defense gameplay? Check. Loot and leveling? Check. The potential for infinite replay value? Check.”
GameZone

“A bigger, better, more refined take on the original concept… from what I’ve seen, following their hearts is already paying dividends, and I can’t wait to play more Dungeon Defenders 2.”
IGN

“Other than The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, I can't think of a game that looks more like an honest-to-god cartoon.”

About This Game

The Old Ones’ armies have invaded Etheria and it’s up to you and your friends to push them back! Create a team of heroes to take into battle. Then freeze, burn, and electrocute enemies with your deadly defenses or jump into the action yourself to finish them off! Play by yourself or with up to three friends in 4-player online co-op.

Create a Team of Heroes


The Squire, the Apprentice, the Huntress, and the Monk are all ready for battle! Play as any or all of them by adding heroes to your Hero Deck and swapping between them on the fly. You could even play with four Squires -- each customized and geared differently.

Fight Hordes of Enemies


Dragons. Wyverns. Dark Mages. Oh my. There are tons of enemies, minibosses, and an epic boss for you and your towers to decimate while you protect the Eternia crystals and save Etheria.

Customize with Loot and Skill Spheres


Want to focus on awesome, fast harpoon towers? Or how about a DPS Huntress with homing falcon arrows? Choose your stats and combine your weapons, passives, and skill spheres to create your own hero unique builds!

Raise an Army of Pets


Want a dragon who can shield your defenders? Or how about a pet sword that spawns an aura of piercing swords on the ground! There are hundreds of pets to find and hatch, each with their own range of unique and devastating abilities. Beware though, you’ll have to raise and feed your pet to unlock their true potential.

Play with Friends!


Dungeons aren’t meant to be defended alone! Invite your friends to Etheria to play up to four player online co-op.

We Never Sell Any Gameplay Advantage


We mean it! You will never be able to gain gameplay advantage by spending real money in Dungeon Defenders II.
