A classic Warcraft 3 mod, a Kickstarter hit & early access success begins the march to v1.0
Tampa, FL, September 8th – 4-person indie studio AutoAttack Games are making final preparations to launch Legion TD 2 on Steam October 1st. Once a fan-favorite mod for Warcraft III and StarCraft II, Legion TD 2 went on to become a Kickstarter success and has already sold over 150,000 copies on Steam. It expands on the mod with a fresh set of units and abilities, new game modes, and all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a standalone title.
Legion TD 2 has developed an active, dedicated multiplayer scene and (thanks to the feedback from this community) has grown into a highly refined game of strategy with a passionate player-base. Have a glimpse of what it has become in the trailer below:
The original Legion TD mod (developed by the director of AutoAttack Games as a high schooler in 2009) is the second most popular Warcraft III mod of all time after DotA. Being one of the first competitive games to feature automated combat, Legion TD 2 is considered an inspiration for autobattlers like Auto Chess, Teamfight Tactics, and Dota Underlords.
While sharing some elements with these games, Legion TD 2 marches to the beat of its own drum, featuring tower defense elements, offense/defense mechanics and economy management. In both a single-player campaign and ranked PvP modes, players must defend their lane from waves of attacking NPCs by building and positioning defensive units to prevent enemies from breaking through and harming their team’s last line of defense: their King.
Legion TD 2 is a game of tactics, teamwork, and prediction. Picking from one of eight playable factions (with over 100 unique units between them), players must carefully juggle how much money they invest into defending their lane, attacking opponents, and expanding their economy. With over a hundred units, options for randomized builders and thousands of players online daily, no two matches are alike. In 2v2 and 4v4 matches, coordination between team members is essential for victory.
Unlike many established competitive games, newcomers to Legion TD 2 are welcomed with open arms with a single-player and co-op campaign that teaches all the core systems and strategies available. A dynamic, AI-based Game Coach gives players useful tips on how to optimize their economy and unit choices to push the advantage and truly dominate the battlefield. Newcomers are encouraged to take as long as they need to familiarize themselves before they begin the climb up the global ranking leaderboards.
With over twelve years of history behind it as a mod and seven years of development as a standalone title, Legion TD 2 is finally ready to emerge, complete and refined. Version 1.0 launches on Steam on October 1st with a 20% launch discount, reducing the price to $15.99/€13.59/£12.39.
