Dungeon Defenders June Community XP Event for 360 and PS3

Monday, June 17th, 2013



Summer is here and in Florida it means trying not to melt or burn to a crisp every time we decide to do something outside. Thankfully we can do one of our favorite activities in the comfort of air conditioning. We’re talking about our Dungeon Defenders June Community XP Event for 360 and PS3. First we need to figure out what map and modifier you would like to play. Take this survey and let us know. We’ll be announcing the winning map and modifier on Wednesday, June 19 at 11:59 p.m. EDT.

The events will take place on Thursday, May 23, from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. EDT for the PS3 fans and Thursday, May 30, from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. EDT for our 360 fans. You can sign up for the events on our forums. Just sign up in your corresponding 360 event thread or PS3 event thread with your Gamertag/PSN ID and what time of the day you will be online (in EDT please!). Use this handy time zone converter to help you out when telling us what time you’ll be available.

Everyone that we get into our tavern will receive 50 million XP that will go to the hero of their choice. Plus you can sit back, grab a nice cold glass of iced tea, and chat with us. Signing up does not guarantee entry. We’ll post the final list of all the participants on a Google doc that I’ll create the day before the event.

Dungeon Defenders May Community XP Event Map and Modifier for 360 and PS3

Monday, May 20th, 2013

The Ancient Dragon is back, and he’s out to get some revenge. He had underestimated the young heroes in their last encounter. He allowed pride to be his downfall, but this time will be different. The Ancient Dragon realized that our heroes were strong as long as their foe walked around where they could reach them. They were much weaker if their enemy attacked from the sky, completely out of reach of their weapons. Word spread that the Ancient Dragon was gathering an army and planned to attack the Castle once more. As the deadly army got closer to the Castle, the Ancient Dragon’s pride got the best of him as he boasted about his new battle strategy of attacking the heroes from the sky. After all, even if the heroes knew what he was planning, they couldn’t stop him. Or so he thought. The heroes turned to the Castle engineers for help and together they decided that the only way to defeat the Ancient Dragon would be with the help of the Grav-o-tron 3000. Will that be enough? You get to decide when you play this month’s Community XP Event! Your winning map and modifier are:

Low Gravity on The Summit!

Trendy Friday Fun: The aMAZEing Maze

Friday, May 17th, 2013

Today on our Trendy Friday Fun livestream we are excited to show off this week’s PC Community Event map! This isn’t your normal defend-the-Ethernia-Crystal map. Instead of defending the crystal, you must find it. Sounds easy right? We thought so too. After all the time we spent playing every map and seeing every corner of the castle, where could you hide something like that? How about a giant maze the PC Events crew designed just for this event. A maze so impressive, it would make Dominic Cobb proud. We should warn you that get getting lost is not the only danger you will face in this map. It seems like the owner of this maze decided to borrow something from the King Minos mythology.

What could it be? If you are a fan of navigating a labyrinth, corn maze, wheat maze or foggy haze, join @iamisom, @darkpython98 and @laurawantsacow to find out!he event will run from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. EDT, and we’ll drop Dungeon Defenders II beta codes in the chat.

The aMAZEing MAZE event will be running from Saturday to Tuesday (5/18 – 5/21). To participate, simply sign-up at the following link.

This week the Dungeon Defenders PC Community Events team brings us a new and exciting challenge, the aMAZEing Maze!

With the desire to bring new enjoyable experiences to the players, the team came up with an event that does not involve crystal defending, but instead finding one hidden crystal in a big maze. Of course the players won’t be alone in that maze, they’ll have to face its resident, minotaurs.

This event was also made with new players in mind. The past few event sagas were of increasing difficulty. While some players appreciate the challenge, other newcomers struggled to complete it. This event was built with that in mind. Players will be able to choose the level of difficulty they would like to face and the enemies will scale accordingly.

The aMAZEing MAZE event will be running from Saturday to Tuesday (5/18 – 5/21). To participate, simply sign-up at the following link.
