GAINESVILLE, Fla. – March 17, 2021 – Dungeon Defenders: Awakened, the epic return of Chromatic Games’ multimillion-selling tower defense action RPG series, makes its highly anticipated PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 via backwards compatibility release on Tuesday, May 3, 2022.
Drop into the dungeons of Etheria once more to defend its precious crystals from power-hungry evildoers. Prepare to repel the enemy’s advance by assembling defensive blockades and damage-dealing towers to destroy oncoming waves of trolls, goblins, and other devious foes. Keep the barricades strong during grueling battles while picking off enemies in third-person combat with one of seven battle-hardened Defenders.
Wield each hero’s specialized weapons, abilities, and towers. Place discrete traps with the Huntress, massive barricades with the Squire, and minion spawning vessels with the Warden to subdue incoming villains. Once the battlefield is laid, leap into action and personally rip through hordes of monstrous invaders. Cash in experience points to buff Defenders’ vitality, attack, power, range, and other stats to customize builds and give each warrior an edge.
When the waves have cleared, collect the spoils of war and equip upgraded armor, weapons, and accessories to aid in future skirmishes. Progress through a multi-arc story campaign, battling through gorgeous fantasy environments, or test the Defenders’ wit and will across seven distinctive game modes with local or online multiplayer.
“We welcome everyone to rejoice in victory with the team as Dungeon Defenders: Awakened conquers its final platform,” said Alec Saare, Creative Director, Chromatic Games. “Bringing this classic IP into the modern age across all major platforms and welcoming new members into our amazing community has been a dream come true. For Etheria!”
Dungeon Defenders: Awakened will be available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 via backwards compatibility for $29.99 with English language support. More language options are planned for future content updates.
