Dungeon Defenders Gets a Dose Of Portal And Team Fortress 2

Dungeon Defenders Gets a Dose Of Portal And Team Fortress 2

Can't decide which platform you want Dungeon Defenders for? The Steam version comes with a portal gun and tiny Team Fortress 2 fairies. There's that problem solved.

Trendy Entertainment's upcoming adaptation of their popular iOS, tower-defence-action-RPG-thingamy ,Dungeon Defenders, is coming to XBLA, PSN and PC this month, and Valve is making the Steam version stand out in typical fashion.

First off: the ubiquitous "Handheld Portal Device" is available for Dungeon Defender's Huntress class, and it does exactly what you'd expect. The huntress can place portals anywhere on the map, allowing her to funnel enemies into traps or, in true Portal style, send them careering into the abyss. A case of "Speedy soon-to-be-dead thing goes in, speedy soon-to-be-dead thing comes out," if you will. In the Dungeon Defenders universe, however, the gun is powered by magic instead of science, and thus requires the huntress to channel all of her mana into keeping the portals open.

The Team Fortress 2 characters appear as tiny, mildly adorable, fairies that float around the player dispensing death and/or healing effects. The Heavy, Pyro, Medic and Engineer make an appearance. The first two are intent on murder, while the latter heal players and buildings respectively. Judging by the video above, the Heavy's notorious minigun seems to have taken a rate of fire hit, but on the bright side that will presumably save him some money.

Dungeon Defenders arrives on Xbox Live Arcade, PSN and PC on the 19th of October.

I've never heard of this game but if it is endorsed by two of my favourite games then I think I'll definitely be looking into it!

Heh, now those are some pretty neat DLC items. The game itself looks like Orcs must die! with co-op. So it looks like a lot of fun.

Having played the game on iOS I can vouch for it being fun.

Already got the Steam Version preordered. I got the 4 pack and made enough trading to get a copy of Serious Sam 3 BFE Serious Edition as well. :p And I even got another copy from someone else! Good times! It looks fun though. Now to figure out how to get Orcs Must Die by trading...

Now that's a way to get people to try a new game.

Good job.

Entire Team Is FAIRIES!

That's a rather neat way of getting people into a game.

I laughed quite a bit at that.

They have only had this on steam for.....a year now lol. Already preordered and I cannot's wait.

This game has no right to look as fun as it does. It looks magical. I'm absolutely fascinated by the design. It reminds me of my childhood.

Double post.

That's a really cool bonus, and a portal gun fits into the tower defense genre well. I wish I enjoyed the genre more, but it's just not my cup of tea.

Is... Is that an engineer fairy?
SOLD!

Am I the only person that thinks the mod makes the game look ugly. I really dont like portal gun in a tower defense game and the TF2 stuff just doesn't look that great

Is that how Valve sells things.... You making a game for Steam...well how about you add in a Portal Gun...if you werent aware we made... Portal 2....it sold pretty damn well...how about you put some advertising and reminder for us... ;)

Yes it does. You are merely blinded by its majesty.


OT: What a fun little addition. I'll keep my eye on this, seeing as how they claim they are making an OSX version. More games for my Macbook makes me a happy camper. It looks like fun.

No, Valve is supporting the game, as well as trying to get people to buy it for the exclusive DLC.

A portal gun and fairy team? Valve, you win my money yet again.

Wait, wasn't this game supposed to come out a year ago? It kind of fell off my radar, I'm glad it's still around

Is Valve running out of ideas that isn't mildly TF2 related? Seriously every pre-order bonus seems to have that game in there somewhere, first hats and now fairies.
I thought Valve was supposed to be full of creation and awesome, all I'm seeing here is shoe horning.

Seeing Valve neither developed or publishes this game this complaint is kinda stupid. This isn't how Valve sells things. This is how valve helps small developers succeed. Evil Valve for bringing light to indie titles...

I don't care about Hat Fortress 2, and I'm not fanatic about Portal. So, Xbox.

If I was going to buy it in the first place. Which I am not.

Eh, a pre-order bonus is a pre-order bonus, though it would've been awesome to see some more portal 2 stuff such as a turret...or a neurotoxin trap..then again I get a heavy flying around my character shooting stuff...so yeah I'm happy about that. Hopefully the wait for this game turns out to be worth it.

Also completely unrelated if that's you doing the Pentakill Sona cosplay, that be awesome.

Yup... Looks like I've decided, if I do get the game, it's gonna be on Xbox

I've never heard of this game, but that video has me quite interested. The DLC is just the icing on the cake at this point.
