Dungeon Defenders announced

Reverb Communications has unveiled Dungeon Defenders, a downloadable Action-RPG due in Autumn 2010 on PS3, Xbox 360 et PC. Powered by Unreal Engine 3, the game allows up to 4 players simultaneously, online or locally with split-screen. Here is its announcement trailer, the press release and an image gallery.

Press Release:


Twain Harte, California – August 25, 2010 – Reverb Publishing, an initiative of Reverb Communications, cdv Software Entertainment USA and Trendy Entertainment today announced that Dungeon Defenders will march onto the PlayStation®Network for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows-based PCs on Steam, Direct2Drive, IGN Entertainment’s digital retail game site, Impulse and GamersGate this fall.

Developed by Trendy Entertainment using Epic Games’ award-winning Unreal Engine 3, Dungeon Defenders 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.

“We’ve worked with the Trendy team members on numerous games in the past and couldn’t be happier about launching the publishing side of our business with such a strong partner,” said Doug Kennedy, general manager of Reverb Communications.

“Dungeon Defenders turns the tower defense genre on its head and adds a degree of depth seldom seen in a digital title,” said Jeremy Stieglitz, development director of Trendy Entertainment. “There is meaty character leveling and customization, awesome loot drops and plenty of team-oriented defensive strategy to manage, but then you have this action-packed wave-based standoff that gets continually more intense. It’s as deep as it is instantly fun.”

Dungeon Defenders features a lovingly-rendered watercolor art style and allows up to 4 players, online or locally, to take one of four distinct classes into fierce battle against ever-increasing waves of baddies and bosses across 15 arenas and multiple modes.

Dungeon Defenders will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and Windows-based PCs on Steam, Impulse, & GamersGate this fall. Dungeon Defenders is one of the first games to take advantage of GameSpy Open, GameSpy Technology’s independent developer program, allowing Trendy access to several pieces of GameSpy technology, including server and network tools, voice chat and stat tracking services.

This is not made by the Torchlight devs? The UI is EXACTLY the same.

About the game


What's up?
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 I've been hearing about that for Blade Runner. Never saw the first movie but it sounds dialogue heavy with more focus on plot than action. I have ADD like hell and i love those types of movies. (39 minutes ago)

    Doom_Bringer @GriftGFX: its ok I was planning to watch it anyway :P (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I don't wanna oversell it.. because I went into it with guarded expectations which probably helped. But I really do like it a lot. (1 Hour ago)
  • Doom_Bringer
    Doom_Bringer @GriftGFX: that's awesome to hear, I like slow movies. Too much action is eh (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But I like it a lot. Plan to see it again soon. It's my favorite sci-fi movie in a very long time. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think the trailers can be kinda misleading. It's not packed with action for example. And a couple other things that could be considered spoilers :D (1 Hour ago)
  • Doom_Bringer
    Doom_Bringer @GriftGFX: I will probably like it (going by the trailers at least) (1 Hour ago)
