Defense Grid Reawakens on Xbox Live Arcade


Hidden Path Entertainment’s PC tower defense game Defense Grid: The Awakening, which Mike was very fond of when it hit Steam late last year, is now coming to the Xbox Live Arcade, with oodles of bonus levels to boot. No date has been set in stone yet, but the XBLA version is planned for release sometime later in the summer and will be shown for the first time at Microsoft’s Comic-Con booth tomorrow.

Always great to see indie games like this branch out to new audiences!

“San Diego Comic-Con is great place to let players first experience the Xbox LIVE Arcade version of Defense Grid: The Awakening,” said Jeff Pobst, CEO and co-founder of Hidden Path Entertainment. “This latest version of Defense Grid includes many new features such as the Borderland Mission Pack, with four new advanced levels and 12 challenge modes, three brand new challenge types and thirty new challenge modes in the story mode. We have found that everyone – from core gamers to novice players – loves the scalable strategy and gameplay variables that make Defense Grid: The Awakening a game that can be enjoyed repeatedly with new outcomes.”
