 PlayStation® 4 and Xbox® One

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. — Sept. 23, 2014 – 505 Games and Hidden Path Entertainment  announced the official launch of Defense Grid 2 (DG2), the long-awaited sequel to the 2008 definitive tower defense game, Defense Grid: The Awakening. DG2 introduces new worlds and threats to test player’s tower placement strategies in single-player mode, online player-versus-player and multiplayer co-op campaigns. With 21 engaging maps and endless ways to win, DG2 will challenge your strategy skills and once again define the tower defense genre.

Defense Grid 2 features gorgeous landscapes and intuitive gameplay as players defend against new threats to ensure the survival of the human race. The game features dynamic level movement, a rich story and cast of characters, hundreds of challenge mode experiences, new multiplayer modes, and a procedurally driven audioscore. DG2 also introduces players to DG Architect, a level creation tool set connected to Steam Workshop in which players can create their own unique levels to share and potentially sell.

Defense Grid 2 is priced at $24.99 for digital download on PC (Steam) (PC, Mac, Linux), PlayStation®4 and Xbox® One. A special edition of DG2, priced at $29.99, is also available on Steam and includes: the digital book, The Art of Defense Grid 2; the ebook, The Making of Defense Grid 2: The Complete Story Behind the Game by Russ Pitts; and additional content including “A Matter of Endurance,” a new original audio story written by Hugo award-winning author Mary Robinette Kowal and performed by the English voice cast.

Defense Grid 2 for Mac and Linux is now available to play and will be optimized for each platform on October 14.
