New worlds, new threats, new single player campaign and new online head to head and co-op play are available now as Defense Grid 2 hits the Xbox One.
DG2 comes complete with 21 stunning maps, an expanded story mode and hundreds of challenge modes in the sequel to the original Defense Grid. With a compelling single player campaign plus the option to go head-to-head with another player online or join forces with them in new multiplayer co-op action, Defense Grid 2 should just about cover everything you’ll ever need in a tower defense title.
Defense Grid 2, DG2, is the highly-anticipated sequel to Hidden Path Entertainment’s 2008 Defense Grid: The Awakening. Setting the bar as the definitive tower defense game, Defense Grid 2 introduces new worlds and threats to test your tower placement strategies. With a bold new look, a compelling single-player campaign, and the addition of new game modes, online player-versus-player and multiplayer co-op, every play-through brings fun new opportunities and challenges. DG2 comes with a story campaign featuring 21 stunning maps, dynamic level movement, an expanded story and cast of characters, hundreds of challenge mode experiences, new multiplayer modes, a procedurally driven audio score and the ability for players to build their own levels. DG2 also introduces players to DG Architect, a level creation tool set connected to Steam Workshop where players can create their own unique levels to share and possibly even sell if selected. DG2 for the PC was funded in part by Dracogen, a private investor after a 2012 Kickstarter campaign funded the original game’s DLC, Defense Grid: Containment. DG2 is developed by Hidden Path Entertainment and published by 505 Games.
Defense Grid 2 is available right now on Xbox One. You can pick it up for £19.99 from the Xbox Games Store or via the Store tab on your console.
