Chromatic Games pulled the surprise reveal and launch for Dungeon Defenders Going Rogue. The spinoff of the action-tower defense series is available now on Steam Early Access, with a 15% launch discount. A bundle with Dungeon Defenders Awakened is also available, with a 43% discount.
Though it looks familiar to previous games in the series, Going Rogue is described as a roguelite action-RPG. Choose from one of four character classes: the Squire, Huntress, Apprentice, and Monk. Each class has their own special abilities, attacks, and defensive towers. You’ll battle against waves of enemies solo or with up to four players in online co-op.
Defeating foes earns new and improved gear and runes for customization. Between runs you can level up and further improve your character as you work your way towards three powerful bosses.
“Dungeon Defenders: Going Rogue is an exciting new addition to the series, originally starting as a new game mode that blossomed into an entirely new game,” said Alec Saare, Creative Director, Chromatic Games. “We are harmonizing the beloved elements of Dungeon Defenders with the ever-changing customizability and replayability innate to the roguelite genre. Creating fun challenges for players to take on over and over again is our favorite part of working on this beloved series!”
A speedrunning contest is running now, though Sunday, April 3. Entrants must livestream their single player speedrun attempts for a chance to win from a $10k prize pool, split between the five top spots. Submit your streams here.
Dungeon Defenders Going Rogue is available now on Steam PC, and arriving on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S “at a later date.”
