Dungeon Defenders II, the free-to-play Tower Defense titles is set to launch on the 20th, and the team behind the game can’t wait for it to arrive. No, seriously, they talk about how seriously excited they are on their Steam page. Regardless, they’re eagerly waiting for the arrival of launch not just because they want you to play their title, but also, they’re launching a major update for the game on the same day. They can do this because they’ve been working it during the Early Access period of the game.
According to them, this update is meant to help broaden the “New Player Experience”, as well as introducing new characters, features, and even a mode or two. First up, Dungeon Defenders II will be getting its first new character via the update: The Initiate. Admittedly, it’s a gender swap of an existing character: The Monk. However! The Initiate has new abilities to separate from them from the original.
In line with the “New Player Experience”, the game will be getting an all-new tutorial mission and guide videos through the update. The mission will guide you through the basics of the game, while the videos will help show you advanced tactics that’ll help you in the harder levels.
Another big change is to the campaign itself, Dungeon Defenders II now has an upgrade campaign via its missions, and has even gotten its story fleshed out a bit more. So if you’ve been playing the Early Access version, you might want to go see what the new version has to offer. Apparently, it even offers clues as to what is coming next into the game.
There are more fixes and upgrades listed, so check out the full breakdown for more, and be ready to play Dungeon Defenders II when it arrives on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on June 20th.
