Kickstarter, BackerKit, and Preorder Update!

DEFENDERS!

This is just a brief check-in to talk about preorders for Dungeon Defenders: Awakened. We’ve received a lot of support from a ton of you, and want to make sure we reward that where we possibly can. There’s two big things to go over, being preorder upgrade options for Kickstarter and BackerKit supporters, and preorder window coming to a close. Let’s get to it!

Preorder Upgrades

We’ve been working tirelessly with our shop partner to enable upgrades over the past few weeks. Without getting into the details, we unfortunately have not been able to get upgrades going, and don’t want to let people know very last minute that they can upgrade, if at all.

Instead, we’re going to do the following. ANYONE that preordered through BackerKit or backed us on Kickstarter will receive the $60 Prestigious Edition bonuses shown on the preorder store, that are preorder exclusive. This includes:

  • Forum Titles

  • In-game Titles

  • Digital Soundtrack, Strategy Guide, and Artbook

  • Awakened Phoenix Pet 

  • Crystalline Skins 

  • Rift Skins

At Chromatic, we want to do everything we can to reward all of our players who support us, as fairly as we can. We announced the ability to upgrade, and since we are not able to deliver, we are taking the high road and providing the bonuses to those who would have been able to upgrade for FREE. We chose these tiers because it’s equivalent to how much the retail price is for the game. This serves as a big THANK YOU to all of our supporters who joined us early on this adventure, and to help show that we’re focused on making a great game.

Preorder Availability

With Early Access coming on February 21st, we’re going to be closing our Preorder Store the same day. This is to ensure that all our sales for the PC version of Dungeon Defenders: Awakened goes through Steam. With the Preorder Store closing, the Preorder Bonuses will no longer be available for ALL platforms. If you want to grab the Preorder bonuses, you only have until February 21st.

Kickstarter and BackerKit Changes

Starting on February 21st, we will no longer be able to change the platforms that people have selected, as we need to make sure that orders are locked and ready to fire for when we release on each individual platform, ensuring that people receive their correct copies.

What’s Next?

We’ve got a Dev Stream that we’re going to have tomorrow, February 14th at 3:00 PM ET, where we answer questions that we’ve seen posted everywhere, answer questions that all of you have for us, and show some gameplay as well! Please join us, and potentially win a free Prestigious Edition of Dungeon Defenders: Awakened.

That’s all for now, just a quick check-in. We’re hard at work to make sure that Early Access feels as great as possible, and cannot wait for you guys to tear it apart!

Social Defenders

To get reliable updates on what’s to come, be sure to check out our social platforms for the latest juiciest beans to be spilled:

The entire team thanks you for your support. We’re working to make Chromatic Games a studio that is able to create games current and future Defenders are sure to enjoy, because our games are made for YOU!

For Etheria!

All of the rewards listed on the DDA pre-order page are for DDA and will be sent after the game launches.

I got the $35 pledge for the two keys. At the risk of sounding greedy, it's a shame there is no way to upgrade that with $5 to benefit from this, without losing an entire copy of the game.

It s kind of a shame that once you have the default game you can t just get the other preorder bonuses by paying the difference.

Kinda ironic how the people that first backed on kickstarter (and probably the most hyped about dda) received DD2 stuff while the late backers have access to limited edition content for DDA 😂

I'm in the same boat as well. I paid the $35 and got all the cool stuff from that. But, would like to be able to pay the $5.00 difference to get the extra bonus cool stuff. I'd be willing to pay an extra $10 to get the upgrade as well!

We will be closing our pre-order store on Thursday. You'll be able to purchase directly through Steam on Friday, but we will no longer be accepting pre-orders for consoles. Thursday is the last day to receive the extra pre-order rewards. We'll open pre-purchase on each console's respective stores as they get closer to launch.
