So I bought the Defense Council alpha back in October. Now that the game is on my account, I can't buy into the early access. I see that the defense council will get the embellishment set, but will we get the $30 currency? Sucks that we're locked out of buying the currency at a reduced cost for already owning the game if that is the case.




Edit: Scratch that... just found https://www.dungeondefenders.com/2/topic/114704/full-details-of-steamcouncil-packs


For Defense Council Co-Op Pack purchasers, is that the people who bought the $70 pack back in Oct?  If so does that essentially mean we don't need to buy the Collector's Edition to get all the exclusive bonuses from that?  (But may still be inclined to buy it for the buttload of discounted currency!)

Bought 2 copies of the game - 1 for a friend, game won't even open for me. I meet the minimum specs on the store page, just crashes back to desktop after clicking on launch game instantly. Enjoy your free $20, I've told the other 10+ people on my friend's list on the fence about buying early not to bother. EDIT - Link to my steam review about it, showing the specs used before I get anyone going on about "upgrade your pc and stop complaining" http://steamcommunity.com/id/shadow-stride/recommended/236110/

Do you have direct X and the rest of the necessary programs properly working? Have you tried verifying Steam game's cache? Have you tried reinstalling the game? Those are the top solutions for almost all launch problems with DD2

I got the councilor back months ago but want to get collectors / co op back so my friend could play as well or do I just have to get him his own defender pack.

I want the collectors which I thought was co op so I can have an Real life friend join.

Is that not how it works?

 The collectors pack doesn't come with an extra key, it is different from the co-op pack. It simply has the goodies

 You will get the goodies and the currency once they are made. You will receive those as codes to be able to redeem them in game. Regarding the name in credits this will be asked of us when the time comes.

 Yes the council co-op pack purchasers are those you got the 70$ pack back in oct. In that very same thread you linked, compare the goodies and see if there's any missing

when this will be free?

 [[58004,users]] they didn't go away from the f2p platform, the game is still F2P, however what's on steam right now it's the early access to the game. 
What does this mean? 
Early Access isn't Early Release, it's rather more complicated, it's where they offer us the chance to support the game development by paying, and as a reward we get to play the early version of the game, test them and feedback on them, this means we get to influence the game development, so basically you're paying to be more connected to the dungeon defenders 2 develop

I can see how some might not find that interesting enough or they just want to play the game. But for some example me this is quite exciting. No matter what you chose to play now and support or later and simply play the game i hope to see you there and i hope we can have some fun playing together if we happen to meet :)

I literally laughed when I found the solution, after 4 hours. 4 HOURS of re-installing/installing on a different PC/verifying game cache etc, list goes on, removing the ? from the end of my Steam Name was the problem. Game of the Year.

This game seems 100 times better than the first-except for one thing-it is exclusive for PS4.  if trendy entertainment released it on all councils that the 1st is one, then this game would be one of the best that i have ever played in my life.

Hi... how can I check that my Collector's Edition Upgrade is activated?


 Buy a few more just to be safe. :)))))  (Joking of course.)

Actually try adding the collector's edition to your Steam cart.  It should give you a notification to say that you already have that version in your Steam library.  Be careful not to repurchase it again though.

 Hey Laboon.  It's fine to express your opinion whether it's negative or otherwise, but please refrain from swearing as it's against the forum rules.

so im guessing all of that F2P stuff went out the window?

 DD2 will eventually be free-to-play. The Steam Early Access is for those who want to get in early and help influence the game while it's in an early state.
