DEFENSE GRID 2
Aliens Are Invading Again, Protect Your Power Cores
On March 6, 2014, independent video game developer Hidden Path Entertainment, and 505 Games, a global publisher of video games, today announced a partnership to bring the highly anticipated Defense Grid 2 (DG2) to console platforms.
The tower defense game, which has been announced for a PC release later this year, will also be available to console players on the Xbox Live online entertainment network from Microsoft for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the PlayStation® Network for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system.
”505 Games has partnered with us at Hidden Path and is providing a great opportunity for next-generation console players to experience our vision of the definitive tower defense experience. We’re so excited to work on a game we love and bring it to additional platforms with such a like-minded publishing partner,” said Jeff Pobst, project lead for DG2.
“Our goal at 505 is to be a publishing partner that lets studios retain their creative independence and that is exactly how we intend to partner with Hidden Path in order to bring DG2 to market,” said Ian Howe, president, 505 Games. “Hidden Path is the perfect partner, they are experienced industry veterans developing a top-quality tower defense game that we both cannot wait to get into gamers’ hands.”
On July 10, 2012 Hidden Path Entertainment launched its Kickstarter Campaign to fund new content for its highly acclaimed tower defense game, Defense Grid – The Awakening, and potentially a sequel for the loved title. Thanks to over 6,200 backers Hidden Path was able to release the expansion pack Defense Grid: Containment in January 2013.
Hidden Path Entertainment has been listening to the community and will continue to do so throughout the development process making sure players have a voice during the making of the game. Be sure to sign up on the forums if you haven’t done so already (http://www.hiddenpath.com/forum/register.php). On the forums gamers will be given the latest DG2 news, have the opportunity to ask questions of the development team, and provide feedback about the game.
Gamers will battle to protect their power cores on multiple locations throughout DG2. They’ll have new and familiar towers at their disposal as they beat back both new and established threats. Hidden Path Entertainment is happy to announce the addition of both cooperative and competitive multiplayer game modes as well as user created content support.
DG2 is expected to release in 2014.
