Early Access FAQ

Here you can see what a lot of Defenders have been asking about Dungeon Defenders: Awakened. We’ll be sure to add to this as questions come in frequently!

What is Dungeon Defenders: Awakened?

DD:A is a return to our roots, capturing the soul of Dungeon Defenders and bringing it into 2019. This means all new models for everything in the game, brand new maps, new enemies, new weapons, new challenges, and so much more! It's not a simple remake, it goes beyond to give our players what they deserve

What platforms is Early Access on?

PC only

Why is there not Early Access on other platforms?

Two reasons. First being that we’d have to delay more as our console ports are not ready. Second being that PC allows us to iterate faster and without certification processes.

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

Until it’s ready to be fully released sometime guaranteed in Q2 of 2020.

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

  • Available to play on the Switch.

  • Cross Save functionality provided.

What do I do if I see someone hacking/cheating?

Make sure to report them in game so action can be taken.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

The retail price during and after will be $40 USD. This is to honor providing our early supporters through Kickstarter and BackerKit with a reduced price.

Will progress made during Early Access be wiped?

There are no plans to wipe Early Access progress at this time.

Will the Early Access on Steam have controller support?

Yes.

I preordered, how do I receive my Early Access code?

All codes were sent via email, PC versions will have their beta codes converted to release versions. If you preordered after beta had ended you should receive a key immediately, please also check your spam folder. If you did not receive an email please contact Xsolla at support@xsolla.com

How are you planning on involving the community in your development process?

We take player feedback incredibly seriously. Players have the ability to submit feedback by hitting the escape menu in-game to provide a browser pop up to our feedback portal. We put it in the game to make sure that players are able to provide feedback in any form as soon as they are able to. We also scour our forums, Discord, and social outlets for any reports players bring forth. This is a game made for our Defenders, so it only makes sense to involve them in the process as much as we can.

Is Steam Early Access going to be online only?
You can play online and offline.

Will split screen co-op be available during Early Access?

No.

What platforms will Dungeon Defenders: Awakened be on?

We released on Steam Early Access for PC. The full release and Nintendo Switch release are coming in Q2 2020, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Q3 2020.

Is there going to be DLC?

Yes!

Are there going to be microtransactions?

NOPE! Any additional content will be provided in the form of purchasable DLC (downloadable content), similar to the original Dungeon Defenders.

What's going to be in the DLC?

Quite a lot of content. We're not going to be discussing it just yet, but it will be considerable in size to the Lost Eternia Shards DLC content, potentially larger.

Is there going to be Cross Play?

Eventually we would like to provide this, but for now it is not something that is coming with DD:A. We are bringing Cross Saves though!

What are Cross Saves?

Cross Saves allow you to take your DD:A progress with you to any other platform DD:A is available on. This means if you play on your PC, and you want to carry your save over to your Switch copy, you can! At the desk, on your couch, or on the go, you can defend Etheria!

When are Kickstarter, BackerKit, and preorder rewards coming?

Digital goods will be provided upon the 1.0 release. Physical rewards will be sent slightly earlier than our 1.0 release.

Will all platforms receive the same updates after the game releases on all of them?

Yes, we're going to be providing updates on all platforms very close to one another, if not at the exact same time.

Is Dungeon Defenders: Awakened free-to-play?

Nope! It's a retail product, meaning you purchase the full game.

Is there going to be Cross Play?

Eventually we would like to provide this, but for now it is not something that is coming with DD:A. We are bringing Cross Saves though!

  • Chinese (Simplified)

  • French

  • German

  • Portuguese (Brazil)

  • Russian

  • Spanish (Latin America)

  • Spanish (Spain)

Is DD:A more like DD1 or DD2?

We're aiming to capture the magic for Dungeon Defenders, providing an up-to-date experience. Lessons learned from developing Dungeon Defenders and Dungeon Defenders II are guiding us into making a player-first experience that we hope blows your mind!

How many heroes are releasing with Dungeon Defenders: Awakened?

The base four come with the base game. Additional heroes are planned to be added with DLC.
