complete with new gameplay modes
Dungeon Defenders II is the sequel to our popular tower-defense role-playing game, Dungeon Defenders. Unlike itís predecessor, Dungeon Defenders II features a cooperative and competitive mode. Heroes, cosmetic items, pets, and more will transfer across both modes.
The cooperative mode is the true sequel to Dungeon Defenders. Expect more heroes, more towers and even more loot. New features like an expanded story and a 24-player overworld are also in the works.
The competitive mode is a Multiplayer Online Battle Arena set in the Dungeon Defenders universe. Together, 5 players will take up arms to defend their towers against the opposing team. This fast-paced, streamlined MOBA aims for a shorter learning curve and more rpg-esque take on the genre.
they say the competitive mode is going to be playable at PAX East. it's also going to be free to play.
The 24 player overworld idea intrigues me....
