Dungeon Defenders 2 is a new action tower defense RPG developed by ‘Trendy Entertainment’. This sequel is coming out the 20th of June for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. We have to say right now that we are so excited for this sequel. We loved the first game and looking forward to what the sequel has to offer as the first one brought lots of fun and tactical action.
The story is quite similar to the sequel. The ‘Old one’s armies are back. They have invaded once again. So it’s up to the defenders (the heroes) to fight against them and get them out of here by force. The four main heroes are back as well. The Squire who is tanky and gets up in the enemies face, the Apprentice who is a ranged fighter with spells, the Huntress who is trap heavy ranged fighter and the Monk who is a melee character who specialises in support. They all have grown up. They look like they mean business.
Each of the heroes have brand new abilities and new towers. The squire has the same towers though which is a bit disappointing but also means it’s familiar. After all his job is to stop the enemies and rely on brute force. The Monk finally has something to deal with those stupid flying enemies from the first game. There was this one enemies, a flying genie who destroyed out towers and there was no real way to hit him as he was too fast for us to chase down. Now with the ‘Sky guard tower’ which specilises in killing those stupid flying things.
As you continue through Etheria you will come across armour, relics and weapons. With some tactical thinking you can combine their passive and stats to make your own hero build. The pieces and stuff you find that you don’t want, you could fuse them together. A completely new feature to Dungeon Defenders 2 are skill spheres. Small and medium Skill Spheres allow you to boost the stats on your heroes. Large Skill Spheres brings customized attributes and skills. The Uber Skill Spheres are next level because they will completely change the way your defenses or abilities work. It makes us really wonder how. Probably all new abilities. That would be awesome. Allowing your hero the option to have maybe 4 whole new abilities to choose from would be great.
Guess what else is new. There are pets in Dungeon Defenders 2. There were technically pets in the first Dungeon Defenders but you bought one, it fights with you and then that’s it but in Dungeon Defenders 2 you can level them up and use evolution materials to increase their stats, bring out new pet abilities to to help your hero defend against the enemy armies and unleash your pets true power. So now you don’t have to save up lots of cash to buy a pet and then later because a better one appears and so you then save up even more to buy the new one. No more! Now we can have our pet and work on them. A partner. An ally. A companion.
We have to give top respects to Dungeon Defenders 2 and the developers ‘Trendy Entertainment’ because of this one big thing. Dungeon Defenders 2 is free! According to their official website, this game is free. There will be off course in game purchases like costomes and tower skins. There will be no purchases that give advantages. This is a big move and we at X35 Earthwalker respect it. Off course we will support Dungeon Defenders 2 as we loved the first game and this one has more going on.
Overall Dungeon Defenders 2 is looking real good right now. We checked out some gameplay of the alpha builds of the game and the graphics and sounds have stepped up while still keeping that whole cartoon-ish like style. There is some new stuff, the new abilities do add more combinations and strategic possibilities for players to try in teams, the skill spheres just make us so curious as to what they do, we already know that it’s still multiplayer which is great but best of all the game is free so make sure to support the game because a lot of hard work goes into making games. The developers ‘Trendy Entertainment’ did an awesomely fantastic job. This game is definitely worth checking out.
