An Update on DDE

Greetings Defenders,

Thank you for your support through the release of Dungeon Defenders Eternity. It’s been a humbling experience, one that has highlighted that we need to do better as a studio. The lessons we’ve learned, from greenlighting projects to managing external partners, have been invaluable.

As such, we have discontinued our relationship with Nom Nom Games. At Trendy, we will be producing one more patch, which will remove the playverse login and overlay. (The monster is dead!) This patch will not contain any gameplay modifications or the in-progress rebalance. In the future, you will receive your Hall of Triumphs rewards for owning Dungeon Defenders Eternity automatically in Dungeon Defenders II.

As a thank you for your continued support, we will be giving owners of Dungeon Defenders Eternity a free code for the Dungeon Defenders Collection later this summer. This will be a giftable code, so if you already own the full collection, you will be free to give it to a friend or sell it to a stranger.

We’re also updating the original Dungeon Defenders. For the full details, please head to this post.

The Trendy Team

Update: Steam gave us the all-clear, so we went ahead and sent out the Dungeon Defenders Collection codes. You'll find the code in your Steam Inventory.

Update 2: If you received a giftable copy of DDE (either as a gift from another user or if you purchased a Steam copy of DDE on another website), you should now have a copy of the DD1 Collection in your Steam library. Unfortunately, Valve was unable to give gift-copy players a giftable copy of the DD1 Collection.

Update 3: The free DD1 Collection code offer will end on June 5th. If you haven't received your free code, you have until June 5th to contact support@trendyent.com to receive your code.

Devs just gave out free Dungeon Defenders Collection gifts to all people who own Dungeon Defenders Eternity. This means the devs are abandoning support for this game and want you to go back to Dungeon Defenders 1.

If you want Dungeon Defenders, get the first game instead. DDE was a failed attempt to re-release DD1 with some upgrades.

It's mindblowing that people still buy this game.

It's buggy, unfinished, and abandoned by its developers.

This game had potential to be very good, however the horrible overlay coupled with tons of bugs makes this game unplayable. If you manage to get logged in, good luck getting through a full round. Do yourself a favor and and buy the original and play that.

Sounds like as of this week, the developer is giving up on Eternity, pushing a few more updates to the original game, and then leaving it in the hands of the players to work on. Seems the community moved back to the original anyway for the most part, as Eternity was just a pointless rebuild of a game that was fine to begin with. If you're going to play, I'd bet on the original game being the one with staying power. Don't invest in this one.

You can read this to understand the difference between the games, besides just the UI:


Yes, it does seem like Eternity has more content overall. Maybe someday someone can port some of it down to the original. Until then, it seems like people are willing to live without it. I just checked the player counts right now. The original has 825 and Eternity has 53. It will only become more lopsided in the future.

The game has some improvements over the original. However, matchmaking is pretty bad which forces you to play by yourself, thus making it hard + boring. Thereby I recommend the original game as is its much more convenient and fun to play.

What was originally a somewhat iffy re-release of Dungeon Defenders, with some added content and some missing content, is now plain dead in the water. DDE will never get the missing content from DD1, DD1 will never get the new content or DESPERATELY needed rebalances from DDE. Now pretty much all that's left is to wait for DD2 and hope they don't manage to completely ♥♥♥♥ it up a third time.

Ok let me first say I DID enjoy the Dungeon Defenders 1 and Eternity. Now they are going to come out with Dungeon Defenders 2. Dungeon Defenders Eternity (DDE) has recently had a patch. This patch messed things up. Whether or not it is intentional is not for certain. I do however know that several of my friends that play it have reported the issue and had no response to their inquiry. I posted on the forums and no response either. I even looked on the known issues section of the forums, nothing there either. The 2 most played maps (cause of the good loot and gold ammount) are unplayable. So I now feel like I've thrown away my money in this game. I'm not 100% sure but I'm starting to believe this is a marketing strategy to get players to quit DDE and go back to DD1 or even get DD2, their new baby. Either way I wouldn't buy this unless it gets fixed since other maps don't give as good loot/gold as those 2. This makes me upset and I may even take my money and gaming time elsewhere. Who knows they may make DD3 and do the same to the other DD's. DON'T BUY THIS!!! At least not till they fix it.

You have to open a launcher to download the game and then it takes forever to download. Its not my internet causing im running 4GLTE on my wifi and my computer has no problems with steam. The only good game they made was dungeon defenders. Eternity and Number 2 are crappy.

Game appears to be unsupported a mere 8 months after release. Still numerous bugs in the game, everything from visual bugs, to enemies spawning in locations or getting stuck where they cannot be killed and you have to restart the entire level, to not being able to progress in the game at all due to levels that are required to be completed not loading.

It does not bode well for this developer that they drop support for a game less than a year after release because they are working on a sequel, making me hesitant to purchase anything else from them. Couple that with the fact that this game requires an internet connection, has an additional Playverse overlay that forces you to create yet another login/password to memorize and be concerned about having it compromised when they are inevitably hacked, and that all of your characters are stored on their servers (with no option to import them locally) makes this a big no-no purchase.

I'm very sorry but I can't rate this game positive anymore.

It's confirmed the Development has stoped on this title and the last update won't contain any content or rebalancing. Left in this stage the game feels unfinished and I just can't recommend spending 19,99€ on this title.

It's still a good game, but I think it's better to get DD1 instead of DDE now.

Old Review:
I'll make it short. I played the first Dungeon Defenders (and I liked it alot) but I prefer this version even if most of the DD1 players don't. my reasons are:
-"All in one" version (no pay2win, all you can buy are emotes/costumes if you like them)
-Old DD1 contend gets added over time. No PvP and (if I'm correct) no Controller support on Mac yet :-(
-New Contend (I love the nightmare mobs, amuletes, the new pet skills and especially the new maps and bosses)
-Mostly cheat free
-Hopefully upcomming DD2 cross over items.
-more customize options with crafting, dying, Transmorg (change the looks of equipment or make it invisible)

edit: I removed the "Still gets updates part" because the last planned update won't contain any content/rebalance and developement stoped on this title. To be honest the game feels unfinished

If you have the normal Dungeon Defenders then this is basicly a waste of money.
It is just the same but the UI changed and you can see the armor you are wearing.
If you haven't purchased Dungeon Defenders yet you should buy this because it includes all the DLC on a low price point which is nice.
But DONT buy this if you already own the normal version.

i r8 3/8 wouldnt pay agin

I really loved the smarthphone version and the console version of this game. I actually went all the way to have characters level 78 in the console version and managed to get the platinium trophy.

Yet this version has been a huge dissapointment, I really felt like I was being ripped off, the added content seems okay in the overall (I have a friend that has this game pc version, and there are many new cool features which are described on their website). Yet this game is SOOOOOOO BUGGGGYYYY. I have the mac version, I mean, I understand since most people are on PC then most of the support should go there... But if you'r going to release your game on a platform make it at least playable on that platform. This game is so laggy I feel I am living some kind of slow motion flashback... And i have a 2000€ mac that runs pretty much all I have ever tried, and a fiber optic internet connection.To resume my grinds with this game are:

-Of course BUGs AND LAG for the mac version ( can't imagine the linux version; must be like playing in screenshots). I mean even the downloading tool crashed during download I had to re-run around 8-10 times... Mouse sensitivy cannot be adjusted directly so say good by to any decent fluidity...

-Fake "offline mode", so far EVERY SINGLE TIME I have launched this game in "offline mode" the game just crashed systematically. This also happens sometimes normally when you are connected so i tried again and again... never worked...

-I knew before buying this but I feel I should point out that half of the new heros are a fraud, they are just the same heroes as before but with different skins, actions skill, and a bit different stats, they are 4 copies of each of the original heroes, they have the same towers! For a tower defense game that was dissapointing The ther ones are different altough really not a revolution IMO.

I would just say I did not enjoy playing this game, I rarely post negative reviews because usually my problems are that I don't like features in the game but I had never played a game this buggy. It feels like a game in early acces, and I played more stable early acces games... I really loved DD concept but here I feel I just wasted 20€.

I don't recomend this game if you are a not a pc user.

Basically, the game is good, but the features are just so out there and change too much. It left a bad taste in my mouth to be honest. It was fun, I'll give it that; but for 20 bucks, I expected it to have alot more content and actually extend the gameplay with higher levels. Instead, like stated, alot was changed, and alot was restricted. It doesn't feel fun to have restrictions on a coop game. This feels more like a F2P prototype for the first DD.

Positives, negatives, and in the middle of the two:

+ A few new maps, some from the community.

+ New currency system. This is one of the few good ideas they had to be honest.

+ Gear is phsyical. Equip it and it shows. You can make it invisible if you want, you just need to buy the ridiculously cheap invisible armor from the tavern keeper.

+ Ability to dye items. This is good since you can make the weapon fit with your overall look.

+ Physical dye. Work towards making your character unique!

+ All classes and characters unlocked. Well that's nice. Another good idea.

- No steam workshop for mods. Just microtransaction ideas for items people submit. Sad thing? No one submits anything. That's . . . Just sad. Why did they think people would help with this if they hate it so much?

- No local multiplayer with a controler, and a rather dumbed down singleplayer thats nearly impossible.

- Microtransactions for emotes and hats. I think this is a slap to the face since they wanted it to be like TF2 or any other social game we see with a vanity system.

- Difficult to level. Extremely slow leveling speed.

- Level 60 cap.

- Gear is divided into levels of 8. Honestly, did they REALLY just think that was a feature that was a good idea? Now it's even HARDER to get past the easy maps. It's now nearly a REQUIREMENT to jump on a survival game built by a high level. God.

- Skins are all unlocked at the beginning. All of them. Even ones that were unlocked by getting an achievment.

- Pets given at the start include the cube everyone used as advanced currency before . . . Big slap to the face again. It stings that none of the starting pets can be upgraded or even be useful.

- Very low enchantment/upgrade limit. 16 upgrades max?! That's insanely dumbed down, making it EVEN MORE IMPOSSIBLE for new players! Now they can't upgrade their low level gear with the gold they EARN.

- No more minion units. ♥♥♥♥ing. Genius. I mean, theres no real reason we needed those, right?
Except for building survival builds. And every other build. Yeah, good job Trendy, you ♥♥♥♥ed us over on that one. Now the summoner is useless as a builder; he used to be able to just decimate from using these minion units, now he's just basically a wimpy downgrade to any class.

= New system that involves the requirement to have played that map or unlocked it in order to play a server with it.

Now the rant. Oh boy.:

. . . Why did I think this game was good when I was playing it, is the question. I mean, I played it because it's DD and I can't afford every single DLC and content pack for the original. I hoped this was going to be the same or at least like it, but it turned out I'm not the only one upset that it's entirely different. Oh no, it turns out, everyone agrees. It's sad to see that 'Mixed' score on DDE, then look at DD1+DD2, and see 'Very Positive' on both. Just utterly sad; the people who remade DD were probably entirely different devs than the people who made it. Otherwise, the qaulity check is long overdue and Trendy needs to try to seriously reconsider the 'rebalanced' idea.

In a game about coop set in a rpg, is rebalancing things really needed? Furthermore, are tower defense games supposed to be neccesarily 'balanced'? Doesn't it take away the fun to survive onslaught after onslaught of orcs, goblins, and ogres with your friends as you both become stronger? Yes. Trendy, remove the balancing. If anything, we need to bring back the DD1 core experience back if we want this community to survive. It's a good game, don't get me wrong, but unless it's reverted to its golden days of DD1 in terms of experience, it's going to be dead like DRM games usually are.

Due to the login issues and the really cumbersom UI and the fact this game will no longer be supported at all I can't recommend it... The people who bought it were "reimbursed" by given a copy of DD1 complete which 99% of the people who bought this already own..

Anyway to those who take the time to read this skip out on it and get DD1 complete or if you already own DD1 complete skip this and get dd2 or something else because this will not be support anymore. DD1 is to get 2 more patches one of which will allow some of the steamworkshop items to be usable in ranked details are here https://www.dungeondefenders.com/1/blog/119519/two-free-updates-coming-and-more
