Defense Grid 2

Defense Grid 2 (DG2), the sequel to the critically acclaimed Defense Grid: The Awakening, is the next evolution in tower defense. DG2 brings PC, Mac, Linux and console fans new strategies within dynamic and evolving battlescapes that can be played in single-player or co-op and competitive multiplayer. These features enhance the challenge and offer DG2 players’ endless ways to tap into resources and build towers in order to defend against waves of incoming enemies. The controls are intuitive while the gameplay is deep.

In DG2, single-player mode, players must protect human colonies by taking their prowess and skills to other planets, guarding cores on pre-set maps as well as building short- and long-range towers. Levels change dynamically, adding new places to build and new ways for players to adapt their strategy.


  • Individualize The Experience – Upgrades and power ups allow gamers to enhance and customize their strategy as they play in order to react quickly to new challenges.
  • All-New Features – The game features a new engine, maps, campaign, characters, enemies, towers and more.
  • Multiplayer – All-new to the Defense Grid universe, DG2 features two-player co-op and competitive multiplayer modes. Players can work with or against other players to evolve strategies.  Co-op mode allows players to work with a friend to build towers and defend power cores. Competitive mode allows players to compete and modify each other’s gameplay experience while interacting.
  • User-Created Content – Steam players will be able to design and share their own battlescapes online.
