About This Game


Element TD 2 is a competitive tower defense game based on elemental combinations. The elements that you choose determine the towers that you can build. Compete against other players and prove that your defense can last the longest!

  • 7 Maps to mix up your tactics on different layouts
  • 55 Waves to challenge your defenses, plus an endless boss

  • Leaderboards to compete against other players for top score

Element TD 2 is the culmination of 15 years of competitive multiplayer tower defense development. ETD started back in 2005 as the most prominent WarCraft 3 tower defense custom map. It then returned in 2011 as a leading StarCraft 2 arcade game. Twice wasn't enough though, so in 2016 Element TD returned again as a massively popular Dota 2 custom game. It debuted on mobile devices in 2016 as well.

With Element TD 2, we finally present the standalone sequel that is the best iteration of this series.


Development is lead by the same team behind every other version of Element TD. ETD 2 is not a departure from the classic gameplay that players have enjoyed over the years.
