CG Britt July 27th, 2021
As promised, we’re excited to show you all the latest additions and changes for Dungeon Defenders II in the Going Wild West Update! You’ll see some new maps, new challenges, new projectiles (have we mentioned GOATS?), NEW ENEMIES AND A NEW BOSS, and lots of other extra wild features. Let’s not keep you waiting any longer…. Read about all the changes Defenders will see in this update.
If you watched our Friday Funday on July 16th you’d already know that we’ve introduced two new maps to the War Table – The Wildest West and Wild Westival! You can find both of these maps in the newest location on the War Table, The Wild West.
The Wildest West map brings Defenders into the… well, Wild West. Gorgeous Saloons, desert sand, and rickety wagons warp you back to the simpler times. You know, when cowboys and cowgirls protected the land. Make sure to check out all the buildings, rooftops, and alleyways to find the best hiding spots for defenses as you take on the first map. Speaking of protecting the land, this update includes a new Cowgirl Gunwitch costume to match the new map theme! (Check her out in the update photo!)
This second map may seem familiar to veteran DD2 Defenders. Welcome back to the (renamed) Wild Westival! This carnival-themed challenge adds plenty of extra activities to the normal mix of defending. Hop on the rollercoaster for a full view of the town, or enjoy the joyous screams of the spinning cups rider. (We promise they’re having fun…)
A new tier!! We’re hyped about this big addition to DD2 that adds a new difficulty tier for Expedition, Mastery, Incursion, and Onslaught. To celebrate this new tier, we added SPIDERS to the mix. That’s right, the new enemy and new boss are webby, spindly spiders. Take them down quickly or their webs will leave a mess that’s sure to put a wrench in your defending plans.
A new tier also adds the potential for C9 gear drops after boss fights, but that’s super rare. We know you’re all up for the challenge, though.
As mentioned, the new Chaos tier welcomes a new big baddie to Etheria… the Death Weaver Queen. As you can see, she’s a BIG spider, so let’s hope none of our heroes are arachnophobes. Death Weaver Queen’s main attack involves shooting a web projectile that drops a web on the ground. These webs reduce towers’ attack rate, range, and damage.
Maybe you’ve already guessed based on the new boss Queen, but we’re giving a not-so-warm welcome to the new enemy in town – the Death Weaver. Again, they are spiders hoping to use their many (TOO MANY) legs to take down your heroes’ towers and grab the beloved Crystal. Death Weavers’ main attack will slow heroes on hit. To add to that fun, these spideys explode on death leaving a web that reduces towers’ attack rate, range, and damage. An excellent complement to their Queen.
Think the new maps and enemies are neat? Wait until you see what this group of new shards is bringing to combat!
Gravity Bot Damage
Runaway mine carts, shadows, and flying GOATS, oh my! We’re spicing up the mod game with new projectiles, like the shadow entity, the first-ever armor exclusive mod, and plenty of variations on attack damage, burn, and defensive skills to protect and defend Etheria.
Curse of the Rattlesnake
Snake Skin Armor
Who doesn’t love new pets?! We can’t think of a single person, so here we are with a list of new pets to be on the lookout for while grinding in Etheria.
Kobold King and Kobold Bling King
Normal Jackalope and Evil Jackalope
The Material Shop is now open for business! What is this Material Shop? A magical place where you can purchase materials using defender medals or gems to help round out any of the materials you’ve been farming to make all that wonderful loot you’ve been collecting even better! Stop by to see the merchant in the Town Hub!
As if we did not already introduce plenty of exciting changes to DD2 already, here we are with some balancing acts.
