Available on PC & MAC ( http://store.steampowered.com/app/208544) for $3.99, the Summoner is now upon us as Dungeon Defenders ’ latest hero class. The Summoner changes the pace of battle by introducing a brand new way to play: unit management. Instead of placing defenses, the Summoner can call upon his own personal army to protect the Eternia Crystals. Using Overlord Mode, you can control these minions from a top-down ‘RTS-style’ perspective. Did we mention he can have two pets?
