Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) January 24, 2013
Defense Grid: Containment, from independent game developer Hidden Path Entertainment, is now available for download on Steam for $4.99. The all-new expansion to the award-winning tower defense game, Defense Grid: The Awakening, was funded through a successful Kickstarter campaign and provides players with many hours of new content including 8 new maps, a new story, two new characters (voiced by Firefly’s Alan Tudyk and E.R.’s Ming-Na Wen), and 32 new challenge modes. The entire Defense Grid: Containment bundle (all Defense Grid content to date) is available for $19.99.
“We are so thankful to our Kickstarter backers for their support,” said Jeff Pobst, CEO, Hidden Path Entertainment. “This game is the result of collective input, feedback, and voting. It's been a huge, rewarding project for us, and we're so excited to have this new approach in working directly with our fans on our games.”
Defense Grid: Containment is just the latest chapter to Defense Grid: The Awakening. The storyline picks up right where The Awakening left off, and leads the player on an original adventure that opens up exciting future possibilities. New environments and modes of play will require fresh strategies and creative thinking to beat back the aliens and defend humanity. Frequently cited as the best tower defense game available and one of the 25 highest rated games by users on Xbox LIVE Arcade, Defense Grid is for many the definitive tower defense experience.
