Dungeon Defenders 2 on the PS4 gets massive content update in the form of Loot & Survive

Dungeon Defenders 2 has received a massive content update on the PlayStation 4. The ‘Loot & Survive’ patch significantly improves character progression in the pre-alpha access title by raising the Hero level cap from 25 to 50, expanding the loot and pet systems, and adding new gameplay and difficulty modes. It also sets the stage for the upcoming arrival of story in Dungeon Defenders II by introducing talking NPCs (though they may not make much sense for now).

‘Loot & Survive’ adds a multitude of varying gameplay and difficulty features, including a tutorial mode, new daily missions with better rewards and monthly missions with rare prizes. There are new mini-bosses in the campaign, and completing the campaign unlocks both the endless survival test of Onslaught Mode, as well as Adventure Mode, which lets players tackle base maps at harder settings. Truly fearless champions can take on the challenges of Nightmare Modes I-IV, which open at level 40.

In addition to increasing the level cap, ‘Loot & Survive’ gives players special rewards, like skill spheres, as they advance. Players can unlock bonus slots in the Hero deck (up to four) as they progress, and hitting the level limit with one Hero will provide an experience boost for the rest of the deck. There are also new costumes available for the Pirate Monk, Tiger Monk and Farmer Apprentice.

Finally, ‘Loot & Survive’ upgrades companion pets. Not only are there even more pets to collect, but they can now evolve, too, acquiring new active abilities and even distinct appearances as they grow. Players can also reroll pets they own for more desirable stats.

Set in the magical world of Etheria, Dungeon Defenders II is a third-person action-strategy game brimming with classic role-playing elements like loot, leveling, pets and more. Build the ultimate champions and defenses from one of four unique Heroes and an arsenal of towers to defend against the overwhelming minions and bosses of the nefarious Old Ones in single-player or cooperative multiplayer. Dungeon Defenders II supports controllers and two-player local co-op, which can be combined with online co-op, on the PlayStation 4.
