July 9th Episode 1 PTR Patch


Recommended Posts

DEFENDERS,

As has been the trend over the last few weeks, here we are with another PTR patch! You’ll see some minor changes and bug fixes as we keep cleaning up the episode using your super-duper feedback and reports. Keep them coming! (A friendly reminder that you can go back and edit your survey responses if you want to change anything based on patch revisions.)

How to Join

It’s not too late to join the PTR build! We’ve received awesome and helpful feedback from tons of our GLORIOUS Defenders, and we want to make sure your voice is heard. If you own Dungeon Defenders: Awakened on PC/Steam, head over to our forum post that breaks down how to enter the PTR build on Steam: Click here to read the post.

Reward

We know one of the perks of being a part of the Public Test Realm is the chance to experience new content and features. On top of that, we also want to thank each and every one of our testers by giving out this pair of Brown Eagle Wings as a gift once Episode 1 drops. All you need to do is try out the PTR for a minimum of 30 minutes and fill out our in-game survey that can be accessed through the Escape menu. You only need to fill out the survey once (even if it is updated), but of course, we’d love to get as much of your feedback as possible.
