Modkit and Capture the Flag Available Now for Dungeon Defenders on Steam!

Today, Trendy Entertainment is opening Dungeon Defenders up to the community with the release of its Dungeon Defenders Development Kit and 16-player Capture the Flag pre-alpha on PC. With these tools, Dungeon Defenders players will not only be able to modify Dungeon Defenders’ content and create entirely new games based on its code, but they’ll be able to directly influence the development of Trendy’s next major gameplay mode – 16-player Capture the Flag. With seamless multiplayer matchmaking with automatic transferring of new maps and content over the Internet, all players will be able to enjoy this user-created content.
The Dungeon Defenders Development Kit (found here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/202522/?snr=1_4_4__103) is a robust set of tools for players to modify all aspects of Dungeon Defenders and create their own content and games. Packaged with the game’s complete source code and art assets, it is one of the definitive Unreal reference codebases for anyone looking to create their own Unreal games.
This Dungeon Defenders Capture the Flag: Pre-Alpha Pass (found here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/202523/?snr=1_4_4__103) grants players early access to Dungeon Defenders’ 16-player Capture the Flag mode. Here they must form 8-man teams and score the most points by killing opponents and holding the flag for the longest time. This mode will be playable online with players’ existing characters, and players can provide feedback to Trendy Entertainment while they flesh out this gameplay mode through their forums here.
