Mark your calendars, would-be wizards and warriors! D3Publisher, Reverb Publishing and Trendy Entertainment have collectively announced that their highly-anticipated downloadable title, Dungeon Defenders, will launch on October 19, 2011. It is coming to XBOX Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC.
With its one-of-a-kind action-RPG take on tower defense, players everywhere can look forward to jumping into what Official Xbox Magazine called, “…exciting and habit-forming – 9/10”, and Electronic Gaming Monthly said, “… burrows into your brain and refuses to leave – 9/10”.
“It’s been a long time coming, but the day is finally here to announce when we’ll be unleashing the full console version of Dungeon Defenders upon the masses, and we couldn’t be happier,” said Jeremy Stieglitz, COO and co-founder of Trendy Entertainment. “The console version of Dungeon Defenders has more content, more depth and more challenge than many full retail boxed games, so we can’t wait to get it into players’ hands so they can experience this epic role playing game as it was intended to be played.”
Dungeon Defenders blends up tower defense with action-RPG for a perfect puree of four-player co-op goodness. Players control one of four distinct classes in an epic bid to fight back an ancient evil. A combination of real-time strategy and fast-paced hack and slash action must be used to prevail! With drop-in/drop-out four-player co-op online or off, character customization, lootastic gear drops, tradable pets, tons of game-play modes and gorgeous visuals, this is one dungeon you and your friends will never want to leave!
Dungeon Defenders is going to be playable at PAX Prime! Gamers can come experience what everyone is talking about at the Reverb Publishing booth – #3652.
The game’s October 19th release date is for both XBLA and PC. A PSN release date will be announced in the near future. For more information, please visit the game’s official website and/or its Facebook page.
