New Boss - The Genie King 

genieking.png

Deep within Tornado Highlands lies the lamp of a familiar foe...but it has been entirely corrupted by the Old Ones' magic! This iteration of the Genie King can inflict a variety of crippling debuffs with its attacks, so be careful...

 

Hero Reworks

In an effort to spice things up, as well as help out some of our favorite heroes that needed that extra little boost, we have made some changes to some of their towers and abilities. We've wanted these heroes to be unique in their own right for a while, where they have their own unique kits but are still similar to the Monk and Apprentice. Now, we think we have struck just the right balance. Keep reading to see if your favorite hero was affected.

Note: The Adept and Initiate’s price will increase to 10,000 Defender Medals/1,500 Gems. This increase will take effect after 2 weeks, during this time they will both be on sale for 8,000 Defender Medals/1,000 Gems.


Initiate

Firework Cannon (40 DU) - Replaces Boost Aura. Shoots up to three fireworks at different enemies within range, dealing damage in a large area.

  • Concentrated Pyrotechnics (Shard) - Increases the damage of the Firework Cannon by x%, but increases the damage falloff by 50%.

Chi Spirit Tower (50 DU) - Replaces Sky Guard Tower. A spectral copy of the Initiate fires piercing Chi waves that damages and cripples enemies, increasing their damage taken.

  • Spirit Charge (Shard) - Increases the damage of the Chi Spirit Tower by x%, and increases the projectile size by y%.

Frost Strikes Aura (20 DU) - Replaces Lightning Strikes Aura. Deals powerful frost damage to a single enemy within its radius.

  • Frosty Explosion (Shard) - Enemies killed by the Frost Strikes Aura explode dealing x% of the Frost Aura’s Defense Damage as frost damage.
  • Lingering Frostfire (Mod) - Enemies suffer +x% extra Water Damage every second for y seconds when hit by Frost Strikes Aura.


Adept

Tesla Coil (50 DU) - Replaces Arcane Barrier. Generates arcing electricity that chains to multiple targets at once.

  • Reckless Shock (Shard) - Enemies hit by the Tesla Coil take x% more damage, but move 50% faster.
  • Ramping Voltage (Mod) - The Tesla Coil deals more damage as it strikes enemies, up to a maximum of x% extra damage. This damage increase resets after not attacking for 5 seconds.

Crystal Hammer (50 DU) - Replaces Earthshatter Tower. Slams the ground, sending a line of damaging crystalline spikes forward and hitting all enemies in a line.

  • Crystal Fissure (Shard) - Increase the width of Crystal Hammer's attack by 50%, and increase the Defense Power by x%.


Mystic

New Appeasement Tiers
The buffs originally granted by Appeasement were overly complicated and not very well explained. These new buff tiers are simpler while still rewarding the Mystic for remaining at high Appeasement while providing more or less the same power as before.

1% or more Appeasement

  • Ability Power x1.2 
  • Hero Damage x1.2
  • Damage Vulnerability x0.8 
  • Tower Damage x1.2

25% or more Appeasement

  • Basic attacks have lifesteal 

50% or more Appeasement

  • Basic attacks lower the Mystic’s active cooldowns 

100% Appeasement

  • AoE damage buff that deals 1000% Ability Power damage every second
  • 1.5x Speed 
  • Basic attacks make enemies take 10% more damage for 3s

  • While the dagger is impaled inside an enemy all mystic damage is increased by 50%
  • Increased Dark Torment Tower damage multiplier by 600%
  • Increased Dark Torment Tower number of beams from 1 to 3
  • Removed ‘Sand Vipers Target enemies affected by Dark Torment’ 

Serpent’s Coil - Allowed as many Serpent’s Coils to be placed as DU allows. Added collision so they can be damaged by enemies. Can now be upgraded like other towers.
Added Tower Health to Serpent Coil Talent 

Snaking Sands - Detach damage from the stun so Snaking Sands can still damage enemies affected by Elder Wyverns or Headstrong. Buffed damage by 50%.

Sand Vipers - Increased base number of beams from 1 to 3. Beam ramping damage now properly scales with upgrades.

Viper’s Fangs - Damage dealt by this tower has been moved from the bubble pop and rain effects to the initial hit. The bubble attack also slightly knocks enemies back in addition to its knockup effect.

  • Note: The Bunny Hop Shard no longer works on Series EV2 due to this adjustment.

Anti Gravity Bots - Now home towards enemies exploding on contact.

Holographic Decoy - Replaces Death from Above. EV2 leaps backwards, leaving a decoy behind that taunts nearby enemies for a few seconds. As it expires, the decoy explodes and damages nearby enemies.

Aerial Mastery Shard - Reworked due to Death from Above being replaced. New Effect: Increases movement speed while flying by x. Dryad may now also equip this Shard.

Lavamancer

Secondary Attack - Dash now pierces through enemies.

Inflame/Harden - Has now been consolidated into a single ability, Inflamed. Inflamed reduces damage taken, taunts nearby enemies, and increases speed and damage for a period of time.

Tectonic Breaker (Shard) - Reworked due to above change. New effect: While inflamed, deal x% armor stat as earth damage and y% hero damage as fire damage every 3rd primary attack.

Charged Restoration (new Shard) - Charged secondary attacks restore x mana. Can only activate once per second.

Balance

  • Dryad Starfall now naturally pierces shields

  • Pain Aura (Removed) - Pain aura has been removed due to poor performance.

New Skins
We are adding 4 new skins that fit various desert aesthetics so that our players can defend Etheria in comfort and style while braving the conditions in Tornado Valley. We have also added Jade, Frost, and Galaxy Skins for the Mercenary and Countess that can be obtained in Defender packs.

 

Marauder Apprentice Skin - A magician of the sands.

We now are offering yet another solid gold cranial accessory in the Golden Mask! If you have more gold than you know what to do with, this mask is for you. As a bonus, the Golden Mask hides your tears that you are surely crying after paying that much gold.

DEFENDERS,

Today we are putting out a small, but very impactful, update where we are happy to welcome back the Session Browser on Steam, PlayStation, and Xbox! (that feels reallllly good to finally type out btw) In addition to bringing back the browser, we are also enabling the DDGR hero costumes, changing the Dark Elf Warrior, and fixing some frustrating bugs!


Session Browser is back!

This feature is back, you’re once again able to find other Defenders to play with. We’re sorry it was gone for a while, but it was out of our hands and took a lot of work to get back up and running. This is currently live for Steam, PlayStation, and Xbox with Switch coming at a later date.

Dungeon Defenders Going Rogue Costumes!

As promised in our release of Dungeon Defenders Going Rogue, we’ve provided five free costumes that were released in DDGR for DDA! You should be able to select them through transmog once you have the update.

image (14).png

Misc.

  • Removed the Rifted Dark Elf Warrior Cloaking mechanic
    • This means that towers will be able to target and attack rifted warriors without needing to be a fusion tower.
  • Greatly increased the transparency of the Reflect Field’s texture to be less distracting.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where Aim Assist was targeting defeated enemies
  • Fixed a bug where Inventory Stats points would mess up when you swap heroes on the stat page
  • Fixed a bug where XP/Radial Bars were not properly showing values
  • Fixed a bug where applying stat points changes in some cases would get rejected and return to the unspent pool
  • Fixed a bug where heroes would sometimes display -1 health
    • Let us know if you see this in game. We believe we fixed this, but it’s hard to reproduce on our end.
  • Fixed a bug where the secret room stairs didn't have collision, causing you to fall through

 

What's Next?

We’re currently working on getting these patches for Switch. Because of the changes we had to make to multiplayer, the Session Browser requires custom setup on each platform with their own requirements. We’ll keep you posted as to when those are coming out. We are continuing to work on DDA, using your feedback to greatly influence the things we work on, with more surveys on the way to get more of your feedback. We’re wanting to get more small patches out between now and Episode 2 that address some issues that have been outlined as we continue our work. There’s also more updates for DD2 and DDGR on the way, there’s so much we’re doing that we can’t wait to get out to all of you!

DEFENDERS,

If you follow our social media channels (and you should be by now) you may have noticed that I have been streaming a little more frequently during the week on our Twitch channel. I like to do this so that I can better acquaint myself with our streaming community, and have some fun while doing so. Live streaming is how I originally broke into the gaming industry, and is still something that I am still very passionate about. As such, I have been wanting to start a program to say thanks to our streamers, and today I am doing just that!

Here is a link to a very short form to fill out to sign up. That's it. Just fill in your Twitch channel and current email address (yes, you will actually need to check it) and stream any Dungeon Defenders game for a total of at least 20 hours every 2 weeks (Update: 40 hours every month) and I send you a few codes. These codes will usually be for in-game cosmetics that we are featuring in our games. You can use these codes for yourself, or to giveaway to your own communities however you see fit! The amount of codes received may vary each period, and each streamer in the program will receive the same amount.

This program is our way of saying thanks to you who already stream our games, as well as hopefully encourage a few new faces out there to begin. My hope is that this just the start of a program that will continue to evolve alongside our players and games! 

The first 2-week block starts today and runs through 3/28. Codes should be in your email within a day or two of the end of each 2-week period. 

Thanks, and have a good stream!

What is Dungeon Defenders Going Rogue?

It’s a whole new roguelite experience built out of Dungeon Defenders Awakened. You choose your hero to take on waves of enemies, creating unique and custom builds as you progress each time you play!

Main.png

Play as the Squire, Huntress, Apprentice, or Monk, acquiring powerful weapons, defenses, and runes to take on the hordes that await. And don’t fret, there’s more heroes coming!

charsel.png

As you play, you’ll earn XP that you can apply to the talent system. This same XP is also applied to the Hero Mastery system and unlocks permanent attributes and runes on the specific hero that you’ve progressed! 

talents.png

As you level up, defeat bosses, and get faster and faster clear times, you’ll unlock weapons and runes to make your future runs even faster and further increase your power!

1016067399_undefined-Imgur.gif

There is a ton to experience in Going Rouge! Claw your way through the waves of enemies that are coming for your core, and take down completely reimagined boss experiences! The fun doesn’t stop there, as you can invite up to three friends to experience 4-Player Online Co-op to take on the challenges that await!


Why Going Rogue?

While working on our second major update for Dungeon Defenders Awakened, we were making a roguelite game mode that had a fresh start to it every time you play. As we continued to build the mode out, we were having so much fun, but we ran into multiple limitations (no multiplayer, profile save issues, loot dropping issues, and more). We were in love with the game mode, and the only way to get around those issues was to make it exist in its own environment. So that’s what we did!

squirefire.gif

We’ve gone through and done everything we can to make sure that Going Rogue feels like a whole new experience, and justifies being its own standalone game. It’s quite literally Dungeon Defenders gameplay but going rogue. There’s a lot of opportunities to try things out that maybe don’t make sense in our other games. For instance: A speedrunning competition that is fair among all players. Which brings us to…


Going Rogue Dungeon Dash

undefined - Imgur (1).png
 

Starting now and continuing until April 3rd, we’re running a $10,000 Prize Pool Speedrunning Competition to celebrate our launch! We plan on having more structured contests as we continue to update the game, but for release we’re allowing things to be just a bit more chaotic. For more info, CLICK HERE!


Going Rogue Price and Bundling

Since Going Rogue is built out of DDA, we wanted to make sure we provided not only a fair price to purchase the game, but also something that rewards people for already owning DDA. That’s where the Dungeon Defenders Bundle comes in! If you own DDA, you’ll be able to purchase Going Rogue for a reduced price, and even better saving during our release sale. However, we’re also releasing with a sale, so purchasing Going Rogue through the bundle will be even less!

For our new Defenders that purchase Going Rogue, but do not own Dungeon Defenders Awakened, you’ll be able to pick DDA up for a reduced price as well through the Dungeon Defenders Bundle as well (and again, even cheaper when there is a sale going on).


Going Rogue Future Development

This game allows us to continue to scale out the content we make for our other games that fits within Going Rogue. We’re releasing with the base four heroes, but we will be bringing in all of the Dungeon Defenders Awakened heroes over time. As we create more maps, heroes, enemies, and loot, we’re also able to bring these things into Going Rogue and mold them to fit within the gameplay. This helps us be as  efficient as possible during development and allows us to create unique experiences for as many Defenders as possible!

 

undefined - Imgur (2).png

 

So what’s coming?

There’s quite a bit coming that we can talk about now, some sooner than others. Our current list includes:

  • Heroes
    • Warden
    • Series EV-A (EV-GR?)
    • The Rogue (definitely not confusing having a hero name in the name of the game)
  • Enemies
    • Sirens
    • Lycans
    • Rifted Enemies
  • Bosses
    • The Lycan King
  • Maps
    • The Keep
    • Lycan King boss map
  • Gear
    • Weapons
    • Runes
  • Difficulty
    • A third difficulty with greater challenges and stronger enemies.

Everything is fair game from our other games as well! We want our games to be a melting pot, where content can freely crossover where it makes sense.


Going Rogue On Consoles

Going Rogue is currently in Early Access on PC, meaning we’re getting a lot of balance and any major bugs sorted before going into a 1.0 launch. With the game using DDA as a base, we’ll be doing what we can to get the game out on all consoles that DDA is on. As we progress, we’ll keep you updated.


Going Rogue Known Issues

3 & 4 Player Enemy Visuals
There are currently some visual issues during 3 and 4 Player Online Co-op. Players 3 and 4 will see reduced enemy animations and some VFX may be missing. We’re working to fix these issues, but it is still playable.

Summary Screen
It’s functional, but it’s not pretty. We’re going to be getting this updated so that you have a more pleasant viewing experience of what you’re earning.

Party Bar and Player Lobbies
Sometimes it will show players in the wrong spot or not at all, this is purely visual. They are there as long as they show on their screen that they're in the lobby.


Dungeon Defenders Awakened Development

We’re still hard at work on Episode 2. We’ve shown the following with Episode 2 reveals:

As you’ll notice in Dungeon Defenders Going Rogue, there’s an overlap in features with runes being very core to the gameplay. These runes serve as an example of what you’ll be seeing in Dungeon Defenders Awakened as well. We’re still working diligently on Episode 2 and didn’t want to leave our brave DDA players hanging without spoiling some new content. So we’re going to talk about something you’ll be getting for free right now, and also giving a sneak peak at our next hero!


Free Going Rogue Cosmetics

First, the thing that you’ll be getting right away. In Dungeon Defenders Awakened, we will be providing the Going Rogue versions of the base four characters FOR FREE. We’ll be sending out an update later this week. All you’ll need to do is update your game once that update is out, and you will have them. That’s it. This is something we’re doing for ALL PLATFORMS. While Going Rogue won’t be on consoles right now, we want to make sure that all our Defenders are able to have fun with these new cosmetics! Getting the cosmetics onto consoles is going to be reliant on the certification process, so once they pass the individual platform certifications, we’ll have them out to you.

Second, we gave a very small tease on our next hero, which people had guessed, but we’ll announce it here as part of our Going Rogue celebration. 


The Outcast

An exiled general from the armies of the Old One after questioning if war was the answer, The Outcast uses his crystalline arm to command forces to aid him on the battlefield.

 undefined - Imgur (3).png

We’re not going into his kit just quite yet, but the Outcast will be the answer to what many fans have been asking for — a remake of The Summoner that fits within Dungeon Defenders Awakened. This is also another hero that we’ll be bringing into Going Rogue as well. We’re serious about making the most out of all the things we’re creating!


Dungeon Defenders II Development

Oh you thought we were done? Not even close. We’re currently working on getting an update out for DD2 that includes new maps, a new enemy, a new boss, some new gear, which we’ll be talking about in the coming weeks. Past that we have some MAJOR things we’re going to be working on and getting your feedback, because we’ve got big plans and want our Defenders to be part of that process. We’re not going to talk about this much for right now, but stay tuned, big things are coming!

DEFENDERS,

Thank you for taking the time over the past month to fill out our DDA feedback forms. During this time we compiled and aggregated this data so that we could ensure that we address as many of the community’s concerns as possible, while also staying reasonable in what we can accomplish. Here is our action plan going forward at this point. We do anticipate that there will be more additions to this list, but we wanted to make sure that we came back to the community with the plans we currently have. Also, in another effort to be as transparent as possible, we have linked the results of our survey here. The only changes we have made are the omission of comments referencing specific people as well as any inappropriate comments.

** This list is not final, and things are likely to change overtime **

Pre-Episode 2

Siren Rework

  • The Siren has always been a controversial enemy. Originally our goal was to provide a unique challenge that incentivized the player to either be very active, or require specific build preparation. After considering the feedback, we’ll be reworking the Siren to have more of a traditional enemy feel. This will include allowing towers to target them, as well as removing their ability to give elemental resistance to enemies. In exchange, they will be getting a new set of abilities. This should alleviate some of the frustrations our players are experiencing. 

Rifted Dark Elf Warrior

  • It has been pretty clear that players are often confused or frustrated with the Dark Elf Warrior’s ability to not be targeted by non-fusion towers. Going forward we’ll be removing this restriction as we continue to investigate what a more permanent solution looks like. 

Session Browser

  • As mentioned in a previous post, we are actively working on restoring the session browser starting with PC in the coming weeks. Console session browsers are still a work in progress and we will keep you updated as with updates as we have them.

    Episode 2

    New Content

    • This will include all of the traditional episode content: New maps, heroes, enemy, and boss. So far we’ve revealed The Bazaar and Lost Metropolis. We’ve also teased the first hero, The Outcast, being a Summoner remake. We want to make sure we stay faithful to the original Summoner, while also making them a little more…balanced. We will be gathering more community feedback so that we can hit the mark on what you feel is important for this iconic Dungeon Defenders hero. Finally we’ll be looking into revealing even more content over time.

    Runes 

    • As outlined in the forum post, the goal with Runes is to provide the players with a new system that creates more hero and defense build diversity by letting you pick and choose what runes you will use to specialize your builds. These will also serve as a new item type to hunt for and unlock and as well as incentivizing trading.

    Rifted Reworks

    • Our goal here is to take the feedback from the survey and to iterate on the Rifted modifier in order to provide something that more players are happy with. Currently, it is very clear that players believe there are good and bad parts of Rifted. We have a few ideas in the works here, and will be coordinating these with the community and gathering more feedback on which path will be the best going forward.

    Trading

    • This has been a huge request since the launch of DDA and is something we definitely want to implement. This is also a significant undertaking. We really want this to get in and we’ll have more info on this overtime as we get closer to Episode 2.

    Balance

    Hero & Tower Balance

    • We’ve received a lot of feedback in this area including but not limited to: Hero survivability, hero DPS, Walls being weak, Harpoons and Traps needing some love, and some towers being too strong. We are keeping all of this in mind as we continue to iterate on the overall balance of the game.

    Weapon Balance

    • Our main takeaway from the feedback was that players want more weapon choices that are viable in the endgame. We’ll be looking at how to best balance various weapons to still be relevant in the endgame, not just the last boss weapon set.

    Pet Balance

    • We think that it is important to acknowledge the removal of builder pets by saying that our goal was to provide players the freedom to use any pet on their hero without sacrificing their ability to build. That being said, we will be looking at pet balance so that we can expand the list of viable pets, with a specific focus on combat pets. We’ll continue to investigate what we can do to incorporate more defense themed pets and how we can lessen the loss of builder pets.

    Loot changes

    • This topic had some wide array of opinions on where we should go with modifications to the loot system. We currently aren't looking at doing an overhaul to the existing system, but instead we hope that the changes mentioned here should make the loot experience feel better. Overall, the loot complaints we are seeing revolve around Rifted or how loot is acquired. That being said, there are improvements we want to make like better defining or adding loot tiers, and other ways to distinguish between good and bad loot.

    Episode 2 and Beyond

    ** These features may still come with episode 2 but are currently unknown in timeline**

    Boss Rush

    • This has been a popular request throughout the community. At this point we don’t exactly know what this looks like, but are actively exploring this idea. We will update you as we have a more tangible path forward here.

    Endless Survival mode

    • After looking through all of the survey results, it was frequently mentioned that you would like to see some kind of infinite mode where you could truly test the limits of your build. Currently we are not looking to create any kind of Onslaught system, but instead allow players to push their Survival builds as far as they want with increasing difficulty each wave. Rewards here are a little tricky. We want to be very careful not to introduce power creep or trivialize endgame loot grinding, so we’ll be investigating ways to encourage players to complete the harder waves while maintaining balance.

    Customizable Cores

    • Core customization is another highly requested feature, and is something we will be exploring. However, this requires additional UI elements, unlocking systems, and art/content to go along with it. Overall, we’d love to have yet another way to allow players to set themselves apart from one another, however this would pull our attention away from other potentially more important tasks. We will keep you updated on our decision making process here as we move forward.

    More Assault Maps

    • From our feedback, Assault challenge maps have been a very popular request. Previously, we have considered adding a full Assault Challenge game mode on every map. However, this isn’t practical on smaller maps like Deeper Well. Also, the time needed to set up a single map is more than we would like. That said, we are looking to add more assault maps where it makes sense, and provides a fun gameplay experience.

    More Challenges / Loot Changes

    • We are aware (especially after your feedback) that the current rewards are quickly outclassed and not viable for endgame. This is a tough challenge. If the rewards are more viable than what you get in other game modes, then it invalidates those rewards. We do agree that challenge rewards should have a purpose and is something that we will be investigating even further.

    Quality of Life Improvements

    • We will be improving the general quality of life of DDA as we move forward in this process, which will include loot, pets, rifted mode, etc. This is definitely a topic we will want to hear more specifics from the community on, and we will be releasing another targeted survey to further dive into specific concerns.

    GOING ROGUE DUNGEON DASH


    We’re kicking off the release of Dungeon Defenders Going Rogue with a single player speedrunning celebration! Defenders new and old get to compete for a top spot on who can take on the hordes of enemies and epic boss fights the fastest. Will you live on the edge and go a glass cannon build, or bulk up to increase your survivability to get to the end? It’s up to you, the only thing that matters is that you go fast!

    Main.png


    What Is It?

    The Dungeon Dash is a speedrunning competition where players will be competing until April 3rd at 11:59PM ET to get the fastest single player clear time through normal difficulty. There is a $10,000 Prize Pool that is up for grabs, spread out in the following:

    • 1st Place:  $5000 
    • 2nd Place:  $2500
    • 3rd Place:  $1000
    • 4th Place:  $1000
    • 5th Place:  $500
    • 6th - 10th Place Dungeon Defender Mega Package.

    We’ll also be awarding a Dungeon Defenders Mega Package to 1st Place to 5th Place as well. The Dungeon Defenders Mega Package includes all of the following for PC:

    • Dungeon Defenders and all DLC!
    • Dungeon Defenders II - 10,000 Gems!
    • Dungeon Defenders Awakened with all DLC!
    • Dungeon Defenders Going Rogue for a friend!

    How To Enter

    First you’ve got to own Dungeon Defenders Going Rogue. Click here to visit the store!

    Second, read the terms of service here. All entrants for this competition must be 18 years of age or older.

    We’ve got a handy dandy submission form that you can submit to here. The rules for submission must have the following:

    • Single Player Normal Difficulty only. Multiplayer and Hard Difficulty clears will be disqualified.
    • A Twitch VOD or Youtube video of your playthrough from start to finish.
    • In your VOD/Video, you MUST start in the lobby and show your inventory when you finish the run in the video including equipment AND runes.
    • We will not be able to validate any run that does not have this at the end.
    • Session Timer must ALWAYS be visible.
    • No breakaways, obscuring your gameplay window, or anything that stops gameplay during your recording.
      • If it’s a stream recording and you use a camera or any kind of overlay, try to leave gameplay elements/interactions uncovered. If things are covered, it will be up to Chromatic Games’ discretion on if the run is valid or not.

    All submissions will be reviewed and the results will be posted April 5th at 2:00 PM ET.
     

    General Rules

    Consider this a 100% Completion Speedrun without using exploits such as level skipping, debug menus, etc. If you get some insane build that you reliably use that just makes you a machine that’s doubling up on multiple mechanics, that's fine. Outside of the terms of service and submission rules, any form of cheating, manipulation, or exploitation disqualifies you from the competition. We’ll be scrutinizing every run, as well as checking backend information. These, among other, checks ensure that the people receiving rewards are doing so honestly. If you’re asking yourself “is this going to be considered dishonest?”, the answer is most likely going to be “yes”. Don’t cheat.

    That said, if you happen to find some insane exploits, feel free to submit them and we’ll provide Dungeon Defender Mega Packages to people who come up with the most unique exploits voted on by us internally. While we want to keep the competition as fair as possible, we’re definitely excited to see how people can break our game, and we’ll potentially show off your footage!


    Why A Speedrun?

    Something that’s fun with any release is seeing how much people can optimize the gameplay. This also really fits within the roguelite genre, so it just made sense to try and celebrate the release along with an opportunity to make things even more exciting with a prize pool to reward the best of the best! It’s going to be crazy and chaotic with the launch, so we’re looking forward to what people come up with!

    DEFENDERS,

    It’s about that time that we drop some news on some of the stuff that we’ve been working on. We recently released an update to Dungeon Defenders II, and before that we were talking about our PlayStation development for Dungeon Defenders Awakened, and BEFORE THAT we showed the new maps The Bazaar and The Lost Metropolis. Go over a new map? No shot, we’re getting into a new feature and some other stuff.  Let’s talk about RUNES!

     

    NEW FEATURE - RUNES

    Runes are a new item that Defenders can find throughout their journeys in this cursed realm of Etheria, giving even greater power to take on the foes that appear before you. Starting off, players don’t have access to runes right away. As you level, your heroes unlock rune slots to place the runes acquired throughout your adventures. Rune slots are locked on a level basis, meaning if you have a specific hero type at max level, you’ll have access to all rune slots for that hero type.

     

    Runes1.jpg

     

    Runes are broken down into two different categories and within those categories, two different types:  General Runes and Class Runes, and they work in the following ways:

     

    • General Runes - Runes that can be applied to any hero. These are typically flat stat increasing runes, with some slight variations.

      • Hero Runes - Runes that affect your hero’s stats, attacks, and abilities.

      • Tower Runes - Runes that affect your tower stats and activation (whether that’s damage or utility).

    • Class Runes - Runes that are applied to a specific hero, or specific list of heroes.

      • These are also split into Hero and Tower Runes.

     

    These types of runes also mimic the types of rune slots that are available. Once you unlock all rune slots, you’ll have access to two hero slots and four tower slots. These runes, when equipped, will apply to all versions of the hero that you create. This means when you set up your Squire runes, they apply to both your max level Squire, as well as a level 1 Squire that you may have created as well. (Note: runes do not affect characters within Boss Tests)

     

    Rune Unlocks

    We’ve talked about types of runes, unlocking runes lots, and a little bit about how they’re applied to your hero, but how the heck do you get these things? Easy, you fight for them! Runes will  drop on specific maps, with various tiers dropping in different difficulties. The higher the difficulty, the better the rune, pretty simple. The rune available is always your highest unlock, so if you have unlocked the hero rune Vitality IX, you will only be able to equip that rune to one of your hero slots, and you’ll need to equip a different rune in the second hero rune slot. No duplications here.

    This also means that playing a map on the hardest boss wave of the hardest difficulty will net you the best version of the rune that drops. As we continue to release additional episodes and bosses, this will continue to scale as well, giving you more and more powerful runes to hunt as the challenge increases. This doesn’t mean that all runes drop across the entire game, some just start dropping a lot sooner than others. 

     

    Runes2.jpg

     

    But how do you unlock runes? There’s two requirements to unlock a rune, and that’s hero class level and gold. For General Runes, there are level requirements, but they require you to have any hero at or above their required level; for Hero Runes, it requires one of the applicable classes to be at or above the required level. The stronger the rune, the higher the level and more gold that needs to be spent. Let’s say you get a Rune of Vitality III and you haven’t unlocked Rune of Vitality II. You can still unlock it by paying the cost and having the proper level. You aren’t gated by the previous runes, so whichever highest rune you acquire, if you have the gold to spend and meet the level requirement, you’re able to unlock that rune. Once you unlock a rune, it’s unlocked for all applicable classes. This means you don’t have to unlock a Rune of Vitality IX for each individual hero - once it’s unlocked on one, all classes that could use it, can use it.

     

    EXAMPLES OF A RUNE, HELLO?

    Oh yeah, you might want to know some examples of actual runes. Well first, there’s hundreds of these things across every tier, with a rune for pretty much every stat for both heroes and towers. Then on top of that, there are runes similar to some of the item effects that you see on items now (mana regen, projectiles, sunder armor, etc.) And even on top of that, there are runes for pretty much every tower and ability in the game. We’ll go over one for each of the base four heroes:

    • Squire

      • Explosive Shield - Your Shield Throw now explodes for X damage per enemy hit.

    • Huntress

      • Focus Fire - Repeated attacks against the same enemy increase damage dealt against that enemy by X. Stacks Y times.

    • Apprentice

      • Pulsator - When Lightning Tower fires off, it also deals X damage to all enemies within its range.

    • Monk

      • Iron Fists - Enrage Aura now increases the damage enraged enemies deal by X.

     

    Now that was fun to finally talk about even just a little bit. Let’s keep the fun going, we’ve even got some fun general runes, so that you don’t think all the fun is had on just the class runes:

     

    • Death From Above - While in the air, deal X% increased damage.

    • Bouncy - Gain X extra jumps.

    • BURN, BURN, BURN - Fire damage dealing towers also increase damage enemies take by X% for 6 seconds after being hit.

    • Napalm - Enemies killed by fire damage dealing towers apply a Burn to nearby enemies for X damage over 6 seconds.

     

    Did we list those to show specific combos that might interact with each other? Who knows, probably, or it could have just been random runes chosen. Believe what you will!

     

    Anything Else?

    Oh yeah. If we get everything up and running proper (we ran into some multiplayer hurdles as we’ve outlined here), some (if not all) runes will be tradeable. So we guess that means trading as well if all our work with these new systems pans out. You’ll still need to meet the requirements to unlock them (gold and level requirements).

     

    Summary

    Runes. There’s a lot of info. There’s general runes, class runes, ones for heroes, ones for towers, different tiers of runes. We’re still spending a lot of time on these, so pretty much anything here is up to be changed in some way, shape, or form as we continue to develop these. Also if we’re able to get trading in, it’ll be in with this update, and you’ll be able to even trade some runes!

    What’s Next?

    We’re still in our PlayStation certification process and are hoping to have a release date real soon as we squash any of the issues that Sony finds. We’re also working on another DD2 update that is going to be pretty bonkers. Maybe the next thing we talk about has to do with a hero? There’s no telling, but maybe? Probably. 

     

    Did somebody drop this?

    DEFENDERS,

    We’ve talked a bit here and there about some changes that we have to face with multiplayer for Dungeon Defenders Awakened. We wanted to go through and give an update here as to what’s happened, where we’re going, and what you’ll be seeing in the coming weeks and months.

     

    Multiplayer Support

    We currently use a system called PlayFab to help manage cloud saves, profiles, and multiplayer. We were notified in late November that what we use for multiplayer within PlayFab would no longer be supported. They had an updated version, but we’d need to rewrite and reconfigure A LOT to make this work, so our three paths were:
     

    • Rework a lot of systems to try and get on PlayFab’s new system.

    • Rework our multiplayer system to work with Epic Online Systems (EOS).

    • Rework our multiplayer systems to work with each platform’s multiplayer system.

     

    We spent time looking into each option. PlayFab for multiplayer wasn’t a feasible option as it would require a lot of time, and we’d potentially lose functionality by the due date to get this done (March 1st). Playfab also doesn’t support peer-2-peer, which is what our systems are built around.

    Then we looked into EOS, which requires a whole login flow and account creation to work, which would also be a considerable amount of time to get up and running. EOS is also still experimental, so Epic doesn’t recommend using it in production environments, which means we’d have to do some pretty extensive work and testing to make sure we had our bases covered.

    Ultimately we landed on using each platform’s multiplayer system to meet our deadline, while still continuing investigating options within EOS. So what does this mean?

     

    Multiplayer Services

    We’ll be maintaining the ability to play with your friends online through invites using each platform’s friend system. However, we do lose the ability to have the session browser going this route for when these changes go live. That being said, we are still looking into additional options to get the server browser functionality back up and running (as well as any additional features and fun to add). For now, our main focus is to make sure that in some capacity, playing with friends and fellow Defenders is maintained.

     

    What Does This Mean About My Account?

    Nothing changes here. We’re still using PlayFab for account management, so uploading your profiles to the cloud and pulling them down should not change at all.

     

    Platforms

    With this change, there are a few things that are different on each platform, and that is timing. We are wrapping up our work on these changes and getting things submitted. Here’s the expected timelines for each platform

    • PC/Steam - This is the easiest one to update, as we just push updates as they are ready. There is not a certification process, so PC players should not notice any major hiccups

    • Xbox One/Series X/S - The approval times for this platform tend to be pretty quick (usually a day or so), so players shouldn’t notice any major hiccups.

    • Nintendo Switch - The certification process with anything we push through varies in length (sometimes 5 business days, sometimes 20). We’re not really sure on the length until we submit and find out. This may cause some potential hiccups with players losing multiplayer services until the patch is approved. We’ll be keeping people posted as this develops.

    • PlayStation - We put a survey out previously asking if PlayStation preorders/backers wanted us to include multiplayer services. We sent this survey out via email to thousands of preorders/backers, it was a pretty dead even split:

     

    YEgomV2LyFhBCyOkWDKxvSddAFnix5J0JVILQBfh

     

    This is the total votes after removing the unverified votes. Unverified votes were votes that didn’t match our database for preorders/backers (35 unverified votes were removed. 24 that responded “earlier release” and 11 that responded "later release”). Because of how close it was, if it was absolutely necessary to get PlayStation out at a reasonable time, we were going to forego multiplayer. We made this survey to see if that was the option we needed to take, and polling the community was a way to make sure if we did that, it would be okay to some extent. We’re showing the results here as part of our promised transparency on how development for DDA goes.

    That being said, we’re doing multiplayer anyway. We kept working even as the results were coming in and were able to get multiplayer working. We’re currently in our larger certification process for the PlayStation release, adding tweaks and updates to multiplayer as they go through doing their extensive checks. We’ll keep you posted on when the release is as we get more word on where our approval for certification is, but multiplayer should be included on PlayStation release.

     

    What’s Next?

    As noted, we’re still working with Sony on getting DDA out for PlayStation, we’re almost there! We just got a DD2 update out this week for Embermount, with a hotfix going out today with continued support and work to squash any bugs that appear. We’re plugging away on DDA and some really big work that we’re going to be excited to show and share within the next month.

    DEFENDERS,

    In October of last year we released the Mercenary to an incredible reception (and a little surprise) from the community. After seeing this overwhelmingly positive response we collectively thought “Why don’t we make another new hero?” So we did. We are back today bringing you the new hotness: The Countess!

    This patch is live now on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation!

     

    New Hero: The Countess

    Chaos IX Incursions and Rings

    Similar to Chaos VIII, Chaos IX has another set of Prime Incursions at an even higher difficulty to complete. Unlike Chaos VIII Primes, however, completing each region will not reward another set of Hyper Shards. Instead, each region will award a unique Ring equipment, complete with its own locked Mod. Rings can only boost hero stats, and will retain their upgrades and strength even through Ancient Power resets.

     

    • Prime I Reward: Ring of Speed

    • Prime VII Reward: Ring of Piercing
      • Unique Mod: Blessing of Piercing - Hero projectiles pierce shields and do x% of their damage.

     

    In addition to Rings, completion of all Chaos IX Prime Incursions will reward one new Hyper Shard! Another copy of this Hyper Shard can be earned through the completion of all Chaos IX Mastery objectives.

    • Genie King’s Blessing - Gain x defense mana upon defeating an enemy, up to 100 enemies per Combat Phase.

    New Map - Embermount Volcano

    embermount_4.png

    A long-time favorite map, Embermount Volcano, has made its Dungeon Defenders 2 debut! Found in the Lost Dungeons regions, this fiery map poses brand new challenges… including a brand new boss! This map will also appear in Onslaught, but not in Mastery.

     

    New Boss - The Phoenix

    Anyone that has experience with Embermount Volcano in previous games in the series knows that it is home to the Phoenix boss, and this time is no exception. The Phoenix is an extremely resilient enemy, with a large arsenal of attacks to wear down its opponents! Defeating this beast on the highest difficulties will require patience and skill, but the rewards are well worth the effort.

    Summary

    Normally we try and stay pretty humble here at Chromatic, but we did bring the heat with this patch. The Countess, +1 Chaos, rings, and a new vendor are just a few things to be excited for. Ok, we are done patting ourselves on the back (for now). Time to get back to work!

    We have so much going on behind the scenes here that we can’t wait to share with you. As always, we will post any and all updates to our social channels so make sure to follow us! Thanks again to all of our Defenders, see you again soon with even more content!

    DEFENDERS,

    We’re currently in certification for our PlayStation 4 and 5 release of Dungeon Defenders Awakened. The intention of this message is to outline where we’re currently at and to get your input on what you’d prefer regarding the release of this port. We’re sending a survey out directly to people who have pre-ordered this to make sure that their voices are heard directly about the following matters.


    Multiplayer

    At the end of November, we were notified that the systems we use through PlayFab would no longer be supported March 1st, as they had updated their systems and would not be supporting our legacy version past that date. As a result, we’re currently working on overhauling our entire multiplayer setup for Dungeon Defenders Awakened across all platforms, doing everything we can to make sure we’re transferred off the legacy version before that deadline (otherwise multiplayer systems just stop working). After weeks of working with PlayFab support, we were not able to get an extended window to use our current systems. We weren’t expecting to have to overhaul to the degree that we are, but if we don’t, multiplayer just stops working.

     

    What does this mean for PlayStation?

    Currently we are in the certification process for how the game currently runs. Part of this process is how multiplayer functions on PlayStation, making sure connections work, and that there’s not any kind of major issues. When we update our multiplayer systems, we’re going to have to go through the certification process again to get this newer multiplayer system approved. This can take a considerable amount of time. We’re reaching out to players to get their preference on what we do moving forward. We have two options available to us right now (though things can change drastically as we do this work that may shorten or lengthen the timelines):

    • Option 1: Delay the release of PlayStation until Q2 (May/June), releasing it with our updated Multiplayer Systems.
    • Option 2: Release on PlayStation potentially sooner without Multiplayer Systems in Q1 (March), and release an update that enables Multiplayer Systems as we get the work finished and approved through the certification process.
      • This is not something guaranteed that we can do, we’re just wanting to get feedback if it’s something players would want before we investigate it even further.
      • We may be able to release with a Day 1 patch that includes multiplayer. It’s all dependent on the certification timing. Our goal will be to get multiplayer running as soon as possible.
      • Kickstarter/BackerKit/Xsolla Rewards come with the multiplayer/online systems patch.

    The survey that our PlayStation players will be completing is going to be a major factor into which route we go with. We might hit some great momentum and get everything we want out within the timeline we had planned, but we would rather be transparent about this now and potentially pivot if it’s what our players want.

    Summary

    We’re a small team and are focused on providing everything we can to our players. With something of this nature, it’s important to make sure that what players receive is something they agree on. The surveys should be going out via email with the listed addresses through Kickstarter/BackerKit (this includes updated email addresses if you contacted support to have that information updated). Once we get the results, we’ll let everyone know the direction we’ll be taking to keep you informed.

    For Etheria!

    DEFENDERS,

    It seems like forever ago that we introduced you to the Mercenary, somehow it has actually only been 3 months?? Today we want to talk about the next major update to DD2 - The Embermount Update! We covered this on our latest Twitch Stream, so if you'd like to see the VOD, click here!

    New Hero: Countess

    If you have ever wanted to harness the power of Siege Weaponry, Fire, and Dragons then we think she may be the hero you've been waiting on!

    countess.png

    Passive 

    • Fury - Basic attacks also launch phoenix projectiles that deal fire damage to all targets in a line. Scales with hero damage.

    Abilities 

    • Flame Surge - The Countess slams her shield into the ground, summoning ethereal dragons that travel forward in a line to burn everything in their path.
    • Call to Arms - The Countess rallies allies near her, increasing movement speed and damage dealt. Nearby towers also deal increased damage!

    • Valiant Charge - The Countess charges forward, becoming immune to damage and heavily damaging all enemies in her path.

    • Holy Fire - The Countess creates a barrier of fire around herself, healing her over time and reducing damage taken.

    Towers 

    alldefenses.png

    • Flak Cannon - Launches debris in a wide but short cone with concussive force that knocks smaller foes away.

    • Oil Catapult - Launches arcing flasks that damage and oil enemies in an area.

    • Dragons Nest - This nest is home to several baby dragons that seek out and attack nearby enemies with fireballs

    • Elder Dragon - Summons a unique and powerful dragon that burns all enemies in a huge area dealing high initial damage and even more over time.

    Countess Hero Shards/Mods

    • Melting Point (Weapon Shard) - When the Countess deals fire damage to an enemy, there is a change to ignite their armor dealing damage over time.

    • Flame Eater (Weapon Mod)- Increases damage to ignited enemies.

     

    New Skins

    dragoncommander.png

    • Countess Skin - Dragon Commander

    • Squire Skin - Commander Armor

     

    Black Market Dealer

    • Goblin Item Insurance - A relic used at Professor Proteus to save your gear from total destruction when tinkering.

    • Exclusive Cosmetic Top Hat - Golden top hat flair. Only purchasable with gold. Only for the fanciest of Defenders.

     

    Chaos 9

    This patch also comes with +1 Chaos! That's right, after Chaos 8 you will have even more content to take on in Chaos 9. This includes a new map, new enemies,  and more!

    embermount_5.png

    • New Map

      • Embermount

    • New Enemies

      • Elder Wyvern - They may no longer be able to fly, but these Wyverns can empower nearby enemies, granting them resistance to damage and status effects!

      • Ancient Wyvern - The bigger, badder, MiniBoss version of the Elder Wyvern. Think you can defeat it?

    • New Shards - Here's a sneak-peek at 2 of our upcoming new shards!

      • Hasten - Increases attack speed

      • Electric Arcing - Increases the number of targets for the Lightning Strike Aura, but reduces the damage

    • New Hyper Shard - Unlike C8 Prime Incursion, C9 Prime Incursions will NOT reward another full set of hyper shards for completion. However, there is one new Hyper Shard for completing all C9 Prime

    • New Equipment: Rings

      • Obtained on Prime 9 Incursions. Each prime tier (1-7) has its own ring that drops on any map in that tier. Rings hage 1 guaranteed locked mod, and do not support any other mods or shards. Rings can be upgraded with gold.

     

    Summary

    We are currently in the process of putting the finishing touches on all of this hot Embermount content. Remember, this is just a patch preview and we will be releasing it in full in the next few weeks. We hope you are as excited as we are!

    While we are very happy with how the Countess turned out, we aren't resting! We continue to work hard behind the scenes to create even more new and engaging content for the Dungeon Defenders franchise. We can't wait to show you what we have been hard at work on here at Chromatic!

    What’s Next?

    Here at Chromatic Games we will be taking time off to spend with our friends and families over the holiday season. That means tomorrow is the last Funday Friday stream of 2021! Make sure to stop by stream tomorrow (Friday, Dec. 17th 2 PM EST) where we reveal this gorgeous new map live! 

    Before we go on our holiday hiatus, we also wanted to let everyone know that we have submitted a DDA build to PlayStation and are officially in the certification process! This process usually involves considerable back-and-forth, so we don't have an exact ETA but we continue to move ever closer to the release.
     
    We still have so much in the works at Chromatic, and are very excited what's in store in 2022 for all of our Defenders!

    Happy Holidays and New Year! See you in 2022!

    DEFENDERS,

    We just put out a new patch for DD2, and didn’t want to leave the DDA fans out in the cold! We have added some new Winterfest cosmetics, and will be having a login event coming up soon for those of you looking to earn even more. 

    This new patch is now live on Steam and Xbox, with Switch soon to follow. We will make sure to update everyone as soon as it goes live on each platform.

    New Cosmetics

    The following cosmetics are all part of our Winter Defenderland DLC that is purchasable on all platforms. Like everything in DDA, anything that is purchased for the game is cosmetic only. These unlock directly in the transmog UI and can be applied to any hero.

    Note: Do not attempt to eat the Candy Cane Wings.

    Snowflake Wings and Giant Snowflake (this is a single version of the Snowflake wings)

    What's Next?

    First off, we want to wish everyone in Etheria a safe and happy Winterfest! We hope that everyone gets time to spend with family, friends, and farm the occasional map during this holiday season.

    To help facilitate your grind, we will be running a DDA login event from Dec. 22 - Jan. 2. By just logging in, you will receive the Santa Hat to help you celebrate the season!

    This is just a slight glimpse of what we are currently working on and we can’t wait to show you more as our progress continues!

    Winterfest Update 2021


    News

    DEFENDERS,

    It’s been a little over a month since we introduced the Mercenary, and that means the Winterfest season is upon us! In the spirit of giving, we are giving you a little bit of everything! We have some optimizations, a new tower, some cool new cosmetics, balance changes, and much more. Let’s get into it!

    64-bit Client

    We are adding a 64-bit beta client for potential fixes for many different crashes and general stability. Currently, a fraction of a percent of all Steam users are still on operating systems that can only play 32-bit games. For the time being, both versions of the game will be available to play in order to ensure there are no unexpected issues that arise with the new 64-bit client on PC. You can run the 64-bit client by opening Dungeon Defenders on Steam and selecting the appropriate client on startup.

    Please let us know if you experience any 64-bit client only issues during your gameplay by taking this PC 64-BIT FEEDBACK SURVEY. We will announce when the 32-bit client will no longer be officially supported. We expect this sometime in 2022.

    Winter Event

    The Winterfest tree has returned for the holidays!

    DEFENDERS,

    We have been hard at work on DDA Episode II, and wanted to show off our colorful new map: The Bazaar! Here you will brave the onslaught from both enemies old and new as you protect Hammel the Camel (and sure, the core too I guess) at all costs!

    New Map: The Bazaar

    After defeating the Lycan King, the heroes traverse a great desert finally arriving at The Bazaar, the first map of Episode II! This map is a relic long forgotten, part of the same civilization that inhabited Tornado Valley and Tornado Highlands. You’ll have to fight your way through the Bazaar in order to progress deeper into the secrets this desert holds!

    Following the cadence of our Episode I development, this new map is actually a remake of a previous Dungeon Defenders map. Can you guess which one?
