Update: The Title Update will actually coincide with the upcoming DLC release, apologies for any confusion.
Original Story: Dungeon Defenders received its first console patch earlier this week and fans of the game will be pleased to hear it addresses a number of minor bugs and increases the game’s level cap. The patch is great news for XBLA gamers since it was stated a while back that all DLC available for the PC version might not reach consoles. Trendy Entertainment revealed the full patch details on their official forums or you can read the full list here after the jump.
We all made many sad faces when we found out that Monday Night Combat would be abandoning the XBLA DLC plans in favor of continued and bolstered support for the PC version. As it happens, more sadfaces are on the way as Trendy Entertainment has wound up in a similar bind when comparing their XBLA support versus PC for Dungeon Defenders. However, Trendy isn’t jumping ship like Uber Entertainment did (let’s call it like it is), there will be compromise. Here’s an excerpt of Trendy Entertainment’s post on their forums regarding console DLC:
After much thought and investigation, we’ve decided it’s unfeasible from both a technical and business standpoint to bring the PC-only content (Holiday DLC, New Heroes Pack, Barbarian, Assault Mission Pack, Nightmare Mode, Shops, etc.) to the console versions. This is for a variety of reasons including the massive restructuring of the current console game that would have to take place, the QA process necessary to prepare for submission, patch size limitations, patch stacking requirements, and the opportunity cost of pursuing other projects.
Congratulations are in order as Trendy Entertainment, D3Publisher and Reverb Publishing have announced that Dungeon Defenders is a runaway success with over 250,000 sales total on all three platforms including XBLA, 200,000 of which were from PC sales alone. To celebrate, Trendy Entertainment have revealed one of its many plans to continue to support the game across all platforms, with free, weekly community events for PS3 and Xbox 360 players. Starting now till the end of the year, these events will allow gamers to play special game modes with the devs and have a chance to win unique loot found nowhere else. The event schedule and instructions on how to join is posted on four wallpapers one for each character class which you can either download for yourself here or view in the gallery after the jump.
