Players can bring one of their persistent characters into a friends game and play through the campaign.
Dungeon Defenders: First Wave breaks new ground in many ways. For starters, it’s the first hybrid tower defense action-RPG game. Players choose from four distinct Hero classes (Apprentice, Squire, Huntress, & Monk) each with their own unique strengths, towers, and
abilities. The first phase of combat is the Build Phase. Here players use strategy to plan their defenses and summon a variety of towers and traps to protect the Eternity Crystals. Then the
action begins; in the Combat Phase players directly engage in action-packed combat with their foes. During this phase they can also build new towers and upgrade/repair existing ones.
