Dungeon Defenders II Development Update!

DEFENDERS,

We’re bringing you some news of a game that you may not have seen us post in a little while about. That game is… DUNGEON DEFENDERS II.  That’s right, we’ve got some development going on for DD2 that we’re excited to share with you. Some of the stuff you’ll see in the short term, some stuff in the long term, and along the way we’ll be getting your input to help us out.  Let’s get into it!

Content

First things first, the Etherian Polar Vortex has ended and you’ll soon have access to a snowless Tavern and Town Hub. Now you may be asking “WHAT ABOUT THE GIFTING TREE!?!?!?!”. Well never fear, we’re adding in a new feller — enter: Ol’ Peepers.

Ol’ Peepers is a gracious old kook who will grant players a daily login gift. We’ll go into more of what his gift contains, as it’s been adjusted to be more focused on gameplay with some cosmetic pieces here and there.

Player Friendly Pricing

We’re introducing a slew of bundles for players looking to support DD2 through the shop, and we’re experimenting with bundles that are focused on being very fair to you, our GLORIOUS Defenders. This means hero bundles, costume bundles, and even a new tower skin bundle that has tower skins new to the next update!

Balance

We’ve taken a nice pass to get some buffs going to really focus on the gameplay. Some things that were rate capped due to animations? NO MORE! Oh, and give a hearty “welcome back” to the shocking revelations (now named Stunning Revelations) and water mod combo, now with 100% more balance but 1000% more fun than it currently is. Also something about pets getting buffed, who knows… maybe it’s a rumor, probably not.

FEEDBACK

Last but not least, we want to hear about what your favorite things are and what your thoughts are. Fill out this survey to let us know and really help us in future development, and by completing the survey be entered for a chance to win a FREE costume of your choice. Retweet the survey (link here) for an additional chance to win!

Bug Fixes

A TON of them, including a lot of fixes for exploits and unintended bugaboos that have plagued the heroes of Etheria. Nothing to write about just quite yet, but we got out the swatter and squished a ton of those lousy bugs.

On The Horizon

There’s a lot of stuff that we want to do, and as mentioned, your feedback will be more helpful. We’re wanting to add all sorts of new challenges, maps, shards, mods, characters, and more for you to overcome, explore, and master respectively (some of those words could be mixed and matched and still make sense).
