“We really love the folks at PlayStation.”
Philip Asher who is the Marketing Director at Trendy Entertainment has revealed to GamingBolt that Sony’s policies for the PlayStation 4 is the reason why they opted to go console exclusive with them. The PC version of the game been under early access for quite a while and it was announced during The Game Awards show that it will also come to the PS4.
It’s rather interesting that Trendy Entertainment decided to skip the Xbox One version since they would ideally want to be on as many platforms as possible. When asked whether there was a specific reason they are skipping the Xbox One version, Asher stated the following:
“We really love the folks at PlayStation and right now a lot of policies on the PS4 made it a better fit for Dungeon Defenders II, since it will be a free-to-play title,” he said to GamingBolt.
He also explained how different classes will interact with each other. “In Dungeon Defenders II we’ve implemented a combo system that allows heroes’ Defenses and Abilities to interact. So, for example, a Monk can place a lightning aura over a Huntress’ geyser trap. Then, when enemies walk through the geyser trap they will get wet and when they get dealt the electric damage from the lightning aura they will become stunned.”
Dungeon Defenders 2 will release on PC and PS4 sometime this year, however the developers stated to us that they are not sure whether they will be able to launch it simultaneously on both platforms since the game is deep in development on the PS4.
