A Little Aperture Science Surprise With Your Dungeon Defenders Steam Pre-Purchase

Trendy Entertainment has lined up a sweet DLC bonus pack exclusively available to PC players who pre-purchase the game on Steam. Early Steam customers get an Aperture Science-approved Portal gun to give the Huntress hero class an edge in defending crystals from streams of attacking enemies, perhaps to lead them walking right off a cliff. The Steam version will also come with four Team Fortress 2 pets that hover around your avatar like a fairy, providing bonus attack damage or heal/repair auras. Those DLC extras come on top of a 10% discount, putting the regular $14.99 price at $13.49.

Dungeon Defenders, an incredible hybrid of action-RPG and tower defense, launches October 18th on PSN and October 19th for PC and XBLA. The trailer up top shows off the Valve-themed Steam bonuses, and below you can find more info on the Portal / TF2 goodies along with the latest developer diary highlighting the game’s combat phase.

The Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device for the Huntress hero class. Constantly consuming energy when active, this device allows its user to open portals from one location to another and can be used to greatly extend a trap’s range, quickly teleport across the map, or confound enemies!

Four Team Fortress 2 Familiars:

– The Heavy: Uses his Gatling gun to shoot at enemies from afar.
– The Engineer: Repairs groups of nearby towers while you’re on the offensive.
– The Medic: Heals a group of nearby allies amidst battle.
– The Pyro: Uses a flame-thrower to set your foes on fire.
