Dungeon Defenders 2 Overview
The gameplay is in 3rd person perspective. You can see your character and you can control him/her using familiar movement and look controls: WASD keys for movements, SPACE to jump. and mouse to control the view. Left-mouse click will perform an ordinary attack while holding the Right-mouse click will allow you to charge your attack or raise your shield. Like action-MMORPGs, you can activate your skills or build towers by pressing the number keys. First four number slots are for abilities, remaining four are for the towers and traps. The controls are very responsive and seamless
The main gameplay takes place in isolated maps (similar to “instances” in MMORPGs) with multiple entrances. Each entrance is protected by a force field which disintegrates projectiles coming in or out of it. That means your arrows won't hit the enemies until they enter your side of the field. The layout of each map are permanent and won't be randomized every session. The players' main objective is to prevent waves of enemy monsters from reaching the high-valued object they're protecting.

The sequel sees the return of the popular tower defense mode and expands the locales and plethora of abilities, gear, and towers. Dungeon Defenders 2 is more RPG oriented, with more hero customization, persistent hero leveling, loot and a town square where players can socialize, manage their heroes, shop, trade, and queue for matches.
