One of the best tower defense games, Defense Grid: The Awakening, hits Xbox Live Arcade on September 2 for 800 MSP ($10 USD), according to a press release issued from Hidden Path Entertainment, the developer.
For those of you unfamiliar with the game:
Defense Grid: The Awakening on Xbox LIVE Arcade features 10 different tower types that can each be upgraded twice. These towers all have unique tradeoffs that affect ideal placement, such as line-of-sight attack or ballistic trajectory fire; a large area of effect or damage over time; and minimum and maximum ranges. Over the course of the game’s 10 hours of story play, players battle 15 different types of enemies, each with unique capabilities and strategies, across 24 unique environments. To ramp up the challenge even more, Defense Grid: The Awakening now includes an additional 100 unlockable challenge modes.
The Xbox Live Arcade version will also have the Borderlands mission pack, containing four new advanced levels and 12 challenge modes.
