  1. DEFENDERS

    Today we pushed out a patch for the Dungeon Defenders: Awakened Beta. This patch is not crazy big, but we wanted to test a few things, give something new to try, and fix at least one thing. Let’s get into it.

    Lava Mines — Extended Edition

    4Z0pzhWEeJvBEy8GMkZz0rbCiZzmysBcB-H173kr

    When you get to Lava Mines, you’ll notice that it’s a bit bigger. We wanted to provide something new for the Beta to test out the difficulty of what you’ll see in the end game for Lava Mines. This extended version adds an additional core, opens up 3 more lanes, and an additional air lane as well. We cannot wait to see people take on this version of one of our new maps!

    Bug Fix

    • Fixed an issue where pets could drop without any stats, especially in Survival Wave 25 on Insane, because it really stinks getting that far and then getting a dumb ol’ Mista Mine and he has zero stats but just slows you down what the heck that’s not fair!

    That’s it?
    For now, yes. The team here at Chromatic has been putting in some serious time to get this game ready for all of you, our GLORIOUS DEFENDERS! We want to make sure that our team is able to get some much needed rest and hit the ground running when we get back in early January. We wanted to avoid putting out a large patch that could cause a lot of issues, leading us to come in away from our family and friends and have to work. We also wanted to provide at least a little something extra for you to get your hands on during the holidays.

    We’re committed to making sure we are making games for our fans, but we also want our developers to be able to relax and maintain a healthy work life balance. Happy developers means a great game, and a great game means happy Defenders, and happy Defenders means even happier developers, and happier developers means a greater game, and so on and so forth.

    We’ll be back in January, ready to keep on rocking out to some game dev montage music and getting Dungeon Defenders: Awakened out of our doors and into your hands as soon as we can. From all of us at Chromatic, thank you so much for your support, and we can’t wait to see what you think of the entire Dungeon Defenders: Awakened experience!

    Feedback
    WANT TO WIN A PRESTIGIOUS EDITION OF DUNGEON DEFENDERS: AWAKENED?! Then keep reading!

    Another thing that we’re going to be sending out directly to all of our beta testers is a survey that will help us along. There might even be some images of an updated HUD, updated Monk, and updated Huntress. They are not the final versions, but a work in progress towards the final, using your feedback to guide us to that perfect final version!

    You can expect to receive this email throughout the day, and into the weekend (it takes a while to send it out to everyone). By filling out the survey with a valid beta tester email, we will be choosing 10 lucky Defenders to receive a FREE Prestigious Edition of Dungeon Defenders: Awakened. We are so thankful for as much feedback as we can get, and this survey will help add to that!

    What Else?
    We also released a patch for Dungeon Defenders II that brought back the Holiday Season event, and a GIANT 50% OFF sale that affects pretty much everything in the game! For more info, hop on over to this post for more info, or hop in-game.

  2. DEFENDERS!

    Today we pushed out an update to bring the holiday season to Etheria! While we’re working on our Beta for Dungeon Defenders: Awakened, we wanted to make sure that Dungeon Defenders II was able to celebrate the festivities that the holiday season brings. Let’s get into it!

    Holiday Season

    l8y0cZGQ9_l3foBloaS6qsvogshfG8DkzQNdRVQC

    When you hop in, the Town Hub and Private Tavern has been transformed into a cozy and wintry wonderland.

    3kdA307yte6KDMFOa9xFrUvO_cIIaWb0th19BQ3Q

    You’ll notice the most welcomed change, being the Wayfarer is dressed in his best Santa costume… Oh also, THE GIFTING TREE IS BACK! Check back once a day to receive some awesome goodies, maybe a mythical Defender Pack or a Season Weapon is inside. Open those presents before all the snow melts! (this snow isn't strong enough to last until April this year ;) )

    Holiday SALE

    ig4FRRkmdM_5qkOYbeyUHlydGVz_4stGMtXnb-b7

    In the spirit of the holidays, there’s a giant gem sale going on in the emporium. All of the following are on sale for 50% OFF of their normal gem cost:

    • ALL Heroes

    • ALL Costumes

    • ALL Shards

    • ALL Shard Packs

    • ALL Hero Bundles

    • ALL Bags

    • ALL Bank Vaults

    • ALL Tower Skins

    • Material Booster Pack

    Some things may not have a 50% off badge next to it, but we assure you that everything listed here has been lowered. We’re excited to share the holiday cheer and make it easier to get what you want this holiday season!

    Known Issue

    • The Target Dummies are on the naughty list, and have been banished from the Town Hub during the holiday season. (Really they were causing an issue with loading that area, so they’re temporarily removed)

    What’s Next?

    We’re currently working on getting Dungeon Defenders: Awakened out here shortly with 2020 just right around the corner! We’ve been hard at work, and if you haven’t, check out our beta check-in here. If you want to keep up with what’s going on with Dungeon Defenders: Awakened before preordering/purchasing on release, be sure to add us to your wishlist to get continued updates! <3

  3. DEFENDERS,

    If you purchased the game through our BackerKit store or through our Xsolla store, you can disregard this post as it only applies to Kickstarter Backers.

    As we’re getting closer and closer to releasing Dungeon Defenders: Awakened, we were giving our Kickstarter backers the options to lower or increase their pledge. This is possible by leaving orders unlocked on our end. Next Wednesday, December 18th, we’re going to be locking orders. After locking orders, you will no longer be able to do so. In order to modify your pledge, use your BackerKit account to do so (where the survey you filled out was sent from).

    For Kickstarter backers that paid $40/$50/$60 or more, will receive the preorder bonuses on our current store (i.e., if you spent $50 or more, you’re guaranteed to get the $50 bonus rewards listed on our site; if you spent $75 or more, you’d get the $50 and $60 bonus rewards). This is to thank you for your early support, and so you do not feel that you have to purchase another copy to receive additional bonuses, especially when you've already paid that amount.

    For Etheria!

  4. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    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!

    Where can I preorder Dungeon Defenders: Awakened?
    On our preorder store, located here!

    What platforms is Dungeon Defenders: Awakened on?
    In February we're releasing on PC and Nintendo Switch, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One following soon after.
     

    Will all platforms receive the same updates?
    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 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!


    I preordered, how do I receive my game code?
    All codes will be sent via email, PC versions will have their beta codes converted to release versions, with consolve versions being sent additionally on their respective releases. This ensures that you're able to download the game without any issues.

    Are there physical versions of the game?
    For the release, we are going to be a digital download only. It sure would be sweet to get a physical version one eventually!
     

    Is Dungeon Defenders: Awakened online only?
    You can play Dungeon Defenders: Awakened online and offline with local co-op.
     

    Is this just another Dungeon Defenders: Eternity?
    The short answer is no. The longer answer is HELL no. DD:E was a different product entirely. We have no plans to repeat history when it comes to that.
     

    We came up with Dungeon Defenders: Awakened as our first smaller-scope project as a new team, to get back to our roots, and give players what they have been asking for!
     

    Who is Chromatic Games?
    We're a completely employee-owned studio making all decisions in-house. We're a mix of old, recent, and new developers that have played and worked countless hours on the Dungeon Defenders series geared to provide the greatest Dungeon Defenders experience to date.
     

    Do you have plans to combat cheating?
    Yes, we've been exploring multiple options to make DD:A fair for those who play!
     

    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.
     

    How many maps are there going to be?
    A total of at least 15 come with the release, with many new locations that Defenders have not seen before!


    Will progress be wiped after Beta?
    Yes. This is to ensure that players do not run into any hiccups once we release the full game in all its glory!


  5. DEFENDERS!

    Last week we deployed a hotfix to address an issue with gear not dropping correctly, specifically with mods missing. This morning we got an update out for PlayStation 4 Defenders. We are currently waiting on certification for Xbox One Defenders, with approval coming later next week. We'll be sure to keep you posted on this as it progresses.

    For Etheria!

    @LAWLTA, Any update on when  we are likely to receive our gems or an ETA when physical goods will be shipped? No rush just curious as nothing has been mentioned since this post was made.

    Gems is going to be when we lock orders (which we're giving time on that still, as we still have people changing their tiers, and we cannot do so after orders are locked). Physical goods are closer to release.

    Lol, let's all get food and sit outside CG's windows and just stare in as we eat our lunch... Arby's preferred, as they need inspiration for the big crossover event. 

    I'll build a pulley system, if you want to pay tribute with big beef and cheddars, and we then wheel down concept art.

     

    As for the original question, we'll be getting things sent out shortly for lunch dates. The idea would be to try and have lunch with individuals, instead of large groups. Give that special attention <3

    We released a patch today for PC and PS4, with Xbox coming later today. This patch is providing new costume content, as well as a small bug fix. The majority of this content is for our Kickstarter backers, with a brand new costume available to all as well!

    Costumes

    For the “Etherian Beta Tester” and up tiers, you will receive the Corrupted Gunwitch costume (as well as a Gunwitch code if you don’t have her unlocked):

    For the “Etherian VIP” and up backers, you will receive the Golden costumes for each of the base four heroes:

    For the “Ultimate” Tavern and up tiers, you will receive the Crystalline costumes:
    -D1QxeuaN1OouFet5LjiWbTdavZDKdauzKiwijgd

    We just added these costumes to the game, and will be sending redeem codes out next week. This is to ensure that everyone receives the update and does not run into any issues redeeming their codes.

    Also, available now on the Emporium is the Underworld Mystic!

    Bug Fixes

    • The Wayfarer has boxed up his winter holidays clothing and is back to his normal business attire.

    What’s Next
    This patch was focused on preparation for getting rewards out to our loyal backers, but fear not! We’re currently working on some challenging content for some of our most tested Defenders currently. The progress is incredibly exciting, and we can’t wait to share more with you. In the coming weeks we will have more information for you!

    We recently released an update on our Dungeon Defenders: Awakened progress, and will be sharing more each month. If you haven’t had a chance to check out our progress, click here for more info.

  9. We're going to have a big update this Friday that outlines EVERYTHING we've been working on and how we've evolved as a studio. We agree that we've been silent for a longer time than we'd want, which we'll explain why in our update. While we're not probably going to be providing weekly updates, we are going to have a lot more stuff to show off in the coming months. We'll be showing the actual hero concepts this week, and then ramping up the stuff we're showing off more and more.

    Why are gems the best option instead of the ability to refund just the physical products?

    We have the option to lower the tier, but why does lowering the tier leave your refund stuck as credit in backerkit?

    This problem is all down to you guys not preparing enough by arranging delivery or estimates and not telling the backers about delivery even though the process tells you you should.

    The backers really shouldn't be out of pocket at all for something that was so preventable.

     

    If you lower your tier and don't plan on spending any credits on additional copies or merchandise, contact preorder@chromatic.games to do so, letting them know which tier you wish to lower it to, and they will refund the difference. Doing it through Backerkit provides funds so that people can lower their tier and potentially purchase another copy of the game (which is why the credit is applied).
