I had to bite my tongue earlier this week, when writing about Dungeon Defenders II. You see, the game went into Steam Early Access for PC yesterday, but it’s only now been announced that the game is coming to PlayStation 4 some time in the future, as well as PC, Mac and Linux.
It’s set to be on show and at the PlayStation Experience event, out in Las Vegas, but as Trendy’s blog post explains, this is very much an early build that has had little work done to it in terms of a console interface.
We still have a ton of work to do, but we’re excited to finally be bringing Dungeon Defenders back to a console. We’ve just completed our first controller pass (it needs a bunch of work!) and are exciting to dig into some other features, like local co-op and a controller-based UI. And yes, all of those features will also be coming to the PC version!
Speaking of the Steam Early Access build, it’s interesting to note that this is paid for, when the game will eventually be a free to play game – and so presumably live outside the requirement of having PS+ for online play, as we’ve seen with other F2P games. Right now, you’ll have to pony up £18.99 to gain access, or £15.19 with an early discount, but this gets you $30 of in game currency for when Trendy get around to adding the paid for cosmetic items and so forth. In other words, you kind of get back what you put in.
You can read more about the game with our preview from earlier this week.
