New Character Class and More with Dungeon Defenders' Latest Steam DLC

Dungeon Defenders is getting even more love in the way of Steam DLC with today’s Assault Mission Pack and Barbarian character class! The Assault Mission pack is a steal at $1.99 that includes three assault missions, a new map and a super awesome unicorn familiar to top things off. The new Barabarian character class changes things up at $2.99, boasting the ability to dual-wield and change the game with battle stances, which actually replace his ability to construct towers – he’s a beast in combat!

Best of all, those who jump on this can get the Assault Mission pack for $.99 and the Barbarian character class for $1.99 on sale for one week only.

Hailing from the dense jungle lands far to the south, the Barbarian is a masterful fighter who can wield two melee weapons simultaneously and unleash devastating combos! Using five distinct fighting stances instead of towers, the Barbarian is able to adapt to any combat situation. His Battle Leap ability allows him to instantly close the distance to a far-off target, while his Battle Pound ability will decimate any nearby enemies. If massive damage and incredible destruction are what you seek, the Barbarian is the hero for the job.

The Barbarian Hero Class has the following fighting stances:

  • Tornado Stance – Run faster, attack quicker, jump higher, and push back enemies with a flurry of quick, low damage attacks.

     

  • Lightning Stance – Use the power of lightning to stun your enemies as your attacks make contact, while taking a small amount of damage for each hit.

     

  • Siphon Stance – Sacrifice some of your resistances to steal life from your enemies as you damage them.

     

  • Turtle Stance – Enter this protective stance to greatly increase your resistances, but reduce your movement speed and jump height.

     

  • Hawk Stance – Summon the powers of the mighty hawk to deal a massive amount of damage in your next attack.
Discover new ways to dominate the battlefield by combining any two of these fighting stances simultaneously, or using these powerful abilities:
  • Battle Leap Ability – This ability allows the Barbarian to quickly close the distance to far-off enemies with a powerful leap attack.

     

  • Battle Pound Ability – This is powerful radial ability allows the Barbarian to decimate any nearby enemies.

Dungeon Defenders brings together the best elements of tower defense and action-RPG progression in a fully 3D environment; spreading the four-player co-op mayhem out across 15 unique maps –  30 challenges,  four difficulty settings –  in all its loot-raiding, spell-casting, level-up stacking glory. Players control one of five distinct heroes – Squire, Apprentice, Huntress, Monk and the all-new Barbarian - in an epic bid to fight back an ancient evil. Each character comes with distinct functionalities, and players can create and customize an armory of weapons and equipment. The campaign, whether with friends or solo, has tons and tons of gameplay with hundreds of loot drops (all upgradeable and customizable) to make each character that much more distinct.
