Dungeon Defenders Takes Over PSN October 18th With Move, 3D Support

Phillip M. Asher's Avatar + Posted by Phillip M. Asher on Oct 03, 2011 // Designer / Marketing Director, Trendy Entertainment

How goes it, PlayStation fans? Hopefully you’re doing well, because all of us here at Trendy Entertainment are feeling awesome. It might have something to do with all the awesome cable TV that was on last night…or it might be because we can finally and officially announce our launch date for Dungeon Defenders on PSN. Ready…October 18th!

For those of you who might not know, Dungeon Defenders is a four-player co-operative Tower Defense action-RPG. You can create heroes from four distinct classes to defend the land of Etheria. Throughout your journey you can customize and level your heroes, forge equipment, gather epic amounts of loot, collect and raise pets, play through multiple difficulties, and more.

But that’s not all! Today we’re also debuting our next developer diary video. This third of the series goes into all the details one of the most important and most FUN parts of the game – the Combat phase. This is where your strategies, tower and trap placements, upgrades and approach (and those of up to three of your friends if you’re playing local or online co-op) will be tested by wave after wave of baddies that are hell-bent on destroying your Eternia Crystals. The Combat phase is not only about testing out your defenses, but also testing out your skill. That’s where the action-RPG part comes in. You’ll have to take on the enemies first hand, and be able to pick up all the sweet loot they drop as well.

Dungeon Defenders - GameplayDungeon Defenders - Gameplay

Of course, you can still build, sell, repair and maintain your towers in the Combat phase. But unlike the Build phase, enemies can and will interrupt you as you work.

And all you PS3 folks are in for a real treat – the PSN version of Dungeon Defenders is the ONLY version to feature 3D and Playstation Move support!

We’re happy, excited and downright STOKED to be able to confirm our PS3 launch date today with the PlayStation.Blog – it has been one of our most-asked questions from fans since we announced the title over a year and a half ago. Stay tuned for more updates and developer diaries as we get closer to launch – and don’t forget to check out Dungeon Defenders on PSN October 18th for the low low price of $14.99!

    We lost our publisher around a year ago and had to get the rights to our game back, find another publisher, etc. In the meantime we’ve been working on making the game even better and more polished. We’re glad we’re finally able to get the game out for everyone to enjoy!

Well, dante341, you failed.

Anyway, this game looks interesting. $14.99 is a good price, if it’s worth it. So, I’ll need a demo. Can we expect one, Phillip?

    We originally built Dungeon Defenders for console and then scaled down to release a mobile version. The console version has around 20-30 hours of gameplay just to see most of the in-game content and closer to 80-100 hours of gameplay if you want to reach the max level, get the best gear, beat the hardest challenges, etc.

Does it still support cross platform play (ie; with players on PC, Android, etc.)?

And can I import my character from the mobile version (ie; Android)?

Thanks.

    It will be patched to support cross-platform play with PC and mobile. You will not be able to transfer mobile characters to PS3, but will be able to transfer them to PC if you wish.

RPG’ers (myself included) are getting spoiled this year so far…

To name a few …

Dark Souls
Chrono Trigger-PSN
DC Universe going free to play.
TES-Skyrim
Dungeon Defenders
…and Ruin

While all these titles excite me… One thing excluded from these releases that needs to see a ps3 psn-side release is Final Fantasy XI Online(mmorpg), It’s killing me that we don’t have this yet. Played WoW and it doesn’t compare in theme and community feel. FFXI is the greatest MMO to ever grace videogame history. So much so it deserves to not go ‘down’ in history…

    We often take videos in the later, more expansive levels of the game on harder difficulties. The game is not nearly this hectic if you’re playing by yourself on the earlier levels :p.

OMG. I just recently got a Ipad, and found this game and started to play it a few weeks ago. The controls are impossible for me to use and I was wishing they would bring it to consoles because of how much fun it its. You just made my day dude! I am already getting Ratchet All 4 One on the 18th, but I will gladly pay a little more for this game also. CANT WAIT!!!!

720p is okay is you’re hitting it out of the park with next-gen quality shaders, lighting, and particles. any technical details on how you’re taking advantage of the SPUs and other PS3-specific hardware?

I ask this because Dungeon Hunter Alliance looked like an upscaled iPhone/Xbox1 game. This definitely looks more original and worth the dollarage, but relaying these kind of details might help allay people’s fears of a repeat of Dungeon Hunter.

    + Phillip M. Asher on October 3rd, 2011 at 7:52 pm said:

    Dungeon Defenders was actually originally made for consoles and the mobile version was a serious reduction in terms of graphics and game play. The PS3 version supports stereoscopic 3D at 720p with no upscaling, 4-player splitscreen, over 100 enemies on-screen simultaneously (even in 4-player splitscreen). It is also on the Unreal Engine 3, so it features dynamic lighting & shadowing, high dynamic range rendering, full shader effects (specularity & normal mapping), postprocessing (ambient occlusion), and TONS of complex particle effects!

Ok quick question. I have reserved/bought a Vita and I noticed that on Gamespot.com that you will be putting this game out on the Vita as well. So my question is that if I buy this game for my PS3 does that mean that I will have to but the game all over again for my Vita or will you make it were I only have to purchase the game once.

    We haven’t announced additional DLC yet. That said, immediately after we locked certified builds of the game we started creating more, even awesomer content for the game. They are going to be very reasonably priced, and I think fans of the game will be really excited. We tried to take the DLC to a whole other level ;).

4 player co-op releasing the SAME DAY as R&C:A4O? If you’re going to wait a year to release a game, pick a different date.

My kids play a lot of Swords and Soldiers and PvZ so they’ll probably really like this, but they’ve been dieing for R&C:A4O, especially since the beta expired. It looks fun and we’ll try the demo, but maybe not for a few weeks.
