Defender’s Quest 2: Mists of Ruin is a sequel to the tower defense RPG, ten years in the making – will be releasing this year

From Press Release:

Texas, USA, April 5, 2023 — Today, developer Level Up Labs and publisher Armor Games Studios proudly revealed the sequel to the classic tower defense RPG Defender’s Quest: Valley of the Forgotten. First announced a decade ago, Defender’s Quest 2: Mists of Ruin re-emerges to launch in 2023, delivering a vibrant new style, a thrilling fantasy tale, and the return of the series’ unique tactical brilliance.

No longer the oasis they once were, The Shining Lands have become plagued by a toxic gas known as Mirk, endangering anyone who dares venture outside the city walls. In this long-awaited sequel penned by acclaimed veteran writer Xalavier Nelson Jr., you follow the tenacious Evni Hunt and her crew, The Hunters, on a deadly mission across these lands in what is perhaps the last hope of saving them.

Like its predecessor, Defender’s Quest 2: Mists of Ruin merges tactical tower defense with the long-term strategy and party customization of classic RPGs. Build a roster of like-minded heroes each with their own abilities, skill trees, equipment, and stories as you weave through dramatic new narratives from multiple perspectives. With a stunning and energetic new visual identity, the series’ heart-racing tactical gameplay is appropriately backed by a gorgeously illustrated world.

Ten years in the making, Defender’s Quest 2: Mists of Ruin is coming to PC (console platforms TBA) in 2023. Rise above the Mirk and wishlist the sequel to a genre-blending classic:
