Hidden Path Entertainment and 505 Games have officially announced the release date for their tower defense sequel Defense Grid 2 will be on September 23rd. Even though we’re now just a few weeks away from this much-anticipated launch, players still have time to get in on the pre-order action and help the rest of the community earn additional bonuses in the process.
Hidden Path Entertainment is hosting demos of Defense Grid 2 this week during Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, to showcase the game’s user-created content tool, DG Architect. New art assets for Defense Grid 2, including screenshots and gameplay footage, have been released for Gamescom and can be downloaded below.
Gamers interested in Defense Grid 2 will find a robust pre-order campaign on Steam. In addition to receiving ten percent off of the launch price, consumers who pre-purchase Defense Grid 2 now will receive immediate access to the beta (currently only for Windows users). As more people pre-order, additional incentive tiers will be unlocked, including the original Defense Grid digital art book, a free copy of the Containment expansion to Defense Grid: The Awakening*, and much more.
You can pre-order you own copy of Defense Grid 2 on Steam at http://store.steampowered.com/app/221540/. The game is set to release on September 23rd, 2014 on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.
