Twain Harte, CA–October 19th– Trendy Entertainment, D3Publisher and Reverb Publishing today announced that Dungeon Defenders is now available for download on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation® Network and Steam. Dungeon Defenders brings together the best elements of tower defense and action-RPG progression in a fully 3D environment; spreading the four-player co-op mayhem out across 15 unique maps – 30 challenges,  four difficulty settings –  in all its loot-raiding, spell-casting, level-up stacking glory.

Players control one of four distinct heroes – Squire, Apprentice, Huntress and Monk - in an epic bid to fight back an ancient evil. Each character comes with distinct functionalities, and players can create and customize an armory of weapons and equipment. The campaign, whether with friends or solo, has tons and tons of gameplay with hundreds of loot drops (all upgradeable and customizable) to make each character that much more distinct.

Tower defense fans and RPG nuts alike will find themselves enthralled by the depth of the character progression. Each class has a slew of towers and skills in their arsenal with 70 levels worth of stat building. All this makes for a chaotic, fun romp of a time in expertly crafted dungeons full of monsters attacking from every angle.
