The action RPG, tower defense hybrid Dungeon Defenders: Awakened got a new update recently. Pre-Episode 2 Patch 2 adds the Endless Survival mode to the game.

Players can now go beyond 25 waves of monsters in Dungeon Defenders: Awakened, thanks to the newly added Endless Survival Mode. To get things started, just press continue on the summary screen after clearing wave 25.

What makes Endless Survival challenging is that monsters get increasingly difficult in each wave. Furthermore, bosses spawn every five waves and get tankier each time as they gain 20% more health.

So, what’s the incentive for doing Endless Survival? Well, players who successfully beat 100 waves on Massacre difficulty will get a golden pet transmog.

Another notable thing in Pre-Episode 2 Patch 2 is that the attack rate caps for defenses have been cut in half, meaning that towers now attack much faster than before.

Here are the other interesting changes in this update:

  • We have added another set of 4 new Fusion pets for you to collect!
    • Act 1: Griffin
    • Act 2: Etherian
    • Act 3: Lil Bomber
