Hero Defense Provides You with a Fresh Take on the Tower-Defense Genre

The unique mashup of RTS, tower-defense and RPG is coming to PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC in mid August 2018

Headup and Happy Tuesday announced a fixed release date for Hero Defense, an innovative genre mix of RTS and tower defense, while various RPG elements provide for enormous depth. The five heroes will be unleashed for Xbox One on August 15th and one day later for PlayStation®4 and PC, on August 16th.

By its multiple gameplay elements – RTS, tower defense and RPG and set in a dark fantasy world populated by monsters like vampires, werewolves and zombies, Hero Defense is an interesting challenge for a wide spectrum of players.

All of your five heroes can be improved in multiple ways. You will rebuild a complete town to use even more upgrades and advancements, including RPG elements like skill trees, runes, magic spells, mighty auras and modifiable weapons… Combining your heroes strengths is key to success – you strategically maneuver your chosen team through various arenas, finding the best spots for attacks and using shrines and strong auras to destroy hordes of sinister enemies.
