Dungeon Defenders II throws action-RPG and tower defense gameplay into the proverbial blender to create a seamless mix of leveling, looting and high-action territorial combat for casual and core players alike, now with a cooperative and competitive mode.

In Dungeon Defenders II, the land of Etheria has been invaded by the Old Ones and players must rally, alone or with friends, against the invasion. The game features brand new combat and defense placement systems that synchronize the roleplaying, action, and tower defense elements of the franchise for even more strategic gameplay. New defense and ability interactions make for exciting, emergent gameplay and new environmental traps increase variety and strategic planning throughout each level in the game.

The competitive mode is a Multiplayer Online Battle Arena set in the Dungeon Defenders universe. Together, 5 players will take up arms to defend their towers against the opposing team. This fast-paced, streamlined MOBA aims for a shorter learning curve and more rpg-esque take on the genre.

There’s some other things like playverse, cross-platform play and all that jazz.

"With over six million Dungeon Defenders players across PC, Console & Mobile, we're thrilled to be able to offer them the chance to play Dungeon Defenders II," said Darrell Rodriguez, CEO of Trendy Entertainment.  "At Trendy, we believe the best games are made in a partnership with their communities. For the last 12 months we've been quietly developing Dungeon Defenders IIwith a limited group of community members we call the Defense Counsel, and we are incredibly proud of our joint accomplishments. Now the time has come to bring the game to Steam and open it up a whole new channel of feedback through Early Access."

With hundreds of hours of gameplay already developed, players that purchase the game in Early Access will get access to a pre-alpha build of Dungeon Defenders II and be able to play the entire first region of the game with the franchise’s four iconic heroes. “This past year we’ve spent most of our time innovating and improving upon the core Action Tower Defense gameplay Dungeon Defenders is famous for, working with our Defense Council to create something fans both new and old will enjoy,” said Brad Logston, Senior Producer of the Dungeon Defenders franchise. “The most exciting thing for us? The feedback we’ve received has been overwhelmingly positive, with some saying we’ve reached a quality bar above what they expect from an Early Access game. This has meant so much to us, and as we work past pre-alpha, we’re eager for new players to join us to help make the best Dungeon Defenders game possible."

Dungeon Defenders II early access program will launch through Steam on December 5, 2014.

Dungeon Defenders II will be FREE, free-to-play not be pay to win.
