For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.
We've all been there. Everyone remembers that mission. You and your partner are climbing up the mountains in the snow, striving to pull some slick clandestine operation about getting some intel on a bad guy, or something similar (because let's face...
The runaway hit from Trendy Entertainment has tallied up two more pieces of Steam-exclusive DLC for arm-chair mages looking to expand their Dungeon Defenders experience.
The Assault Mission Pack and Barbarian Character Class are now available on Valve's Steam service. The Assault Mission Pack adds three new assault missions, a new map, and a "super awesome unicorn." The new Barbarian Character obviously adds a new class to choose from in your defending endeavors.
The best part? For the first week, the assault mission pack will only run you $0.99 and the Barbarian will only run $1.99. After the launch week, the DLC will jump back up by a dollar apiece. Here's the new class details to get you to jump on the deal:
The Barbarian Hero Class has the following fighting stances: Tornado Stance – Run faster, attack quicker, jump higher, and push back enemies with a flurry of quick, low damage attacks.
Lightning Stance – Use the power of lightning to stun your enemies as your attacks make contact, while taking a small amount of damage for each hit.
Siphon Stance – Sacrifice some of your resistances to steal life from your enemies as you damage them.
Turtle Stance – Enter this protective stance to greatly increase your resistances, but reduce your movement speed and jump height.
Hawk Stance – Summon the powers of the mighty hawk to deal a massive amount of damage in your next attack.
Discover new ways to dominate the battlefield by combining any two of these fighting stances simultaneously, or using these powerful abilities: Battle Leap Ability – This ability allows the Barbarian to quickly close the distance to far-off enemies with a powerful leap attack.
Battle Pound Ability – This is powerful radial ability allows the Barbarian to decimate any nearby enemies.
