Hey all, sorry for the delay in getting this up. This post will aggregate answers to most frequently asked questions to Dungeon Defenders Eternity:
Q: There’s a cashshop. Will Dungeon Defenders Eternity be pay-to-win?A: NO
. Right now, many of you are concerned about the in-game cash shop. It’s important for us to let you know that we will NEVER
charge for level increases, missions, or weapons/armor in Dungeon Defenders Eternity. This means that, unlike in the original Dungeon Defenders, all future missions will be free. There will never be any pay-to-win items available in the shop on any platform.
One of our major goals with this version is to provide a secure environment where your heroes’ progression truly matters. We will not short circuit that by simply allowing people to pay for progress.
On some mobile platforms we will package the game with less heroes to compensate for a lower price point. The remaining heroes will be for sale on those platforms.
Q: Why is Dungeon Defenders Eternity not an Early Access title?A:
Before releasing Dungeon Defenders Eternity we too asked ourselves if it should be classified as an Early Access title. Ultimately, we decided it would be disingenuous to release Dungeon Defenders Eternity through Early Access.
We believe Early Access should allow players to play games early and help evolve the core game experience as the developer works on the title. Dungeon Defenders II will go through this process on Steam, and in many ways is already getting this type of feedback from our Defense Council members. This is different from a live game whose core gameplay is already established, but has a developer who listens to fans and improves upon that experience for everyone after launch.
Dungeon Defenders Eternity’s core game has largely been established through feedback from the original game, after thousands of hours of time invested from our community.
When the original Dungeon Defenders launched, it took time to get TrendyNet fully up and operational. Back then we had issues and made mistakes, and we will again. We can only promise that we are iterating and fixing playverse with much more process and care than we did the original. We hope the quality of Dungeon Defenders Eternity’s service will live up to your expectations soon.
Q: Is Dungeon Defenders Eternity a mobile port?A:
NO, Dungeon Defenders Eternity is developed first and foremost for the PC. We do have a version of the PC game which you can play on Android. This version is nearly identical to and can play with the PC version. Going forward, our goal as a company is to create core game experiences that are available across multiple platforms. This means putting real, full PC games on mobile, not the other way around.
While focusing on the PC version of Dungeon Defenders Eternity we have not had enough time create an experience we consider “a good enough” experience on mobile. This is why we only recommend playing the current mobile version with a controller and have released it to a limited userbase that has a high population of users with mobile controllers. This is similar to the Android versions of Half-Life 2 and Portal available for NVIDIA SHIELD devices. Later on, we will expand this release once we have time to implement a better mobile experience.
Some players feel that the graphics have been “downgraded” due to our texture streaming technology implemented in Dungeon Defenders Eternity. We have attempted to fix this issue by allowing players to download the game in full before they launch it. We hope this fixes this issue.
