Awakened features four fantasy heroes defending against waves of orcs, skeletons, wyverns, and other beasts in the classic action-tower defense gameplay. Players will need to construct traps and defenses and use their abilities to repel enemy forces, as well as acquiring loot, upgrading equipment, and engaging in large-scale boss battles across 15 maps and five game modes.
Like previous games in the series, Dungeon Defenders: Awakened will support up to four players in local and online co-op multiplayer.
“Dungeon Defenders: Awakened is an exciting new chapter for us and we can’t wait to welcome veterans and newcomers alike back to Etheria,” said Augi Lye, co-founder, Chromatic Games. “The journey begins early next year on Nintendo Switch and Steam and we hope you’ll join us!”
In addition to beta access, the Early Bird bundle also includes a Steam key for the Dungeon Defenders 2012 Collection, as well as a digital soundtrack, strategy guide, and artbook.
Dungeon Defenders: Awakened will be launching on Switch and PC (Steam) in Q1 2020, and later on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Q2 2020. Note that no matter which platform you pre-order on, the closed beta is only available on PC.
