Trendy Entertainment and Human Head Studios today announced that both companies have joined forces to bring the highly anticipated action tower defense video game, Dungeon Defenders II, to the PlayStation4 computer entertainment system later this year.
Developers of Prey, Minimum, Lost Within, Rune and more, Human Head Studios has a pedigree of high-quality titles spanning multiple genres. That impressive resume inspired Trendy Entertainment to bring the developer into the mix on adapting Dungeon Defenders II to Sony’s console. Human Head will be working closely with Trendy’s internal development team to bring their vision to life on the PS4.
Dungeon Defenders II will be playable on PS4 at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, inside Sony’s booth in the West Hall. Players that go hands-on with the updated demo at E3 will be some of the first to experience the game’s local split-screen co-op mode, in addition to online co-op play, where up to four players can team up to defend the realm of Etheria. Representatives from Trendy will be present for media interviews, as well as to answer any questions players may have during the show.
Dungeon Defenders II is a third-person action tower defense game with RPG elements, featuring single-player and vibrant cooperative multiplayer gameplay. As the land of Etheria is besieged by the innumerable swarms of the Old Ones, players must build up their heroes and defenses to survive the onslaught. The sequel advances the core mechanics of the original Dungeon Defenders with new combat, defense and progression systems, including new abilities, loot, enemies and an elemental combo system.
