Greetings Defenders,

This Friday, Dungeon Defenders II will be available on Steam Early Access! We’re excited to welcome all of our new players into the game and continue to make the best Action Tower Defense experience possible!

Steam Early Access will be available for $24.99. This will include access to Dungeon Defenders II, $30 of in-game currency and a set of 4 exclusive hero embellishments (currency and embellishments will be given to players as they are created/implemented into the game). We expect Dungeon Defenders II to remain in Early Access for at least a year. All of our Defense Councillors will also receive these new embellishments for free.

We will also have an upgrade pack available. This upgrade will be $49.99 and will include $100 additional currency, 4 exclusive Hero Skins, an exclusive title, the 4 Tower Skins our Defense Councillors are designing, and an exclusive tavern decoration (goodies will be given to players as they are created/implemented into the game). All current Co-Op pack Defense Councillors will also get these new goodies. The rest of you will be able to upgrade to this pack on Steam to get all of those in-game extras and the new ones. For an updated list of what your Defense Council packages include (we’ve added a lot!), click here.

Both of these will be 20% off for the first week Early Access is available on Steam!

We want to thank all of you for your feedback in our last survey and blog post about our Steam release. This feedback really helped us decide the pricing and awards in these new bundles. We’re excited to be able to provide new goodies for all of our new and old players, while keeping the Defense Council exclusives… exclusive. :)

We look forward to seeing you in Etheria on Friday! And remember: Tune into the The Game Awards on Friday at 9 p.m. EST for a world-premiere DD2 announcement!



Edited 12/4/14:  Clarified that some of the goodies will not be made immediately available upon purchase. They will be given to people as they are created/implemented into the game. Sorry for the confusion!

Great to see it! 
While i might not always love Trendy's Decisions, and some of them i really disapprove, they're working hard and doing a good job. Let's just keep working tight, curious to see what our fellows from Steam have to say about the game! =)

This will be available on non-Tegra Androids?

 DD2 Steam Early Access is only available for Windows. The game is in development for Windows, Mac and Linux.

So, often Early Access means that the game will stop in development and never be a finished product. Why did you decide to go "Early Access" on us and not wait till you got a clean game ready to play? I don't like the way companies use early access with games that I´m looking forward to playing. I often lose interest in unfinished products. :(

 Unlike other companies, TE will still(obviously)work hard for this game. Early Access are for people that wants to try the game and helps the developer in the process to its release. :)

When will it be free?

 Look towards the south east on the second day at midday (or something...)

Will the $49.99 be released at the same time as the 24.99 if so do you have to buy the 24.99 before buying the 49.99? the wording sounds like you may have to since it's a upgrade.

 its either 17:00 or 16:00, im not sure how they are gonna handle the 0th hour, so to speak. Depends if 0 hours means "59 or less minutes", if that makes sense :)

Both will be released at the same time. You don't have to buy the base pack to buy the upgrade pack, but keep in mind that the upgrade pack does not include a copy of the game!
