Defenders of Ardania Coming to the PSN in December



Paradox Interactive has announced that “Defenders of Ardania” will be released on the PSN in December. The game is looking great, and I am excited to check it out. Hit the jump for a lot more info on the game.

Core Gameplay
Defenders of Ardania (DoA) is a next-generation tower defense game set in the
rich fantasy world of Majesty, but with a twist. Besides the addictive core
mechanics of placing towers to stop advancing enemy units, DoA also allows
players to take on the role of the attackers seeking to conquer the enemy base.
DoA’s innovative new game concepts include light RTS elements, taking the
popular genre to the next level. Players must oversee unit production and upgrades
while assembling the most effective army from one of three playable races, each
with unique locations, towers, and units. However, without magic, a fantasy game
is little more than a toothless lion (or dragon, rather), so a wide range of spells will
be available for players to decimate their enemies and protect their forces.
Although DoA includes a single-player portion, the focus of the game is
undoubtedly multiplayer, where two to four players can take each other on or
compete against AI opponents via Internet, LAN, or PSN. The multiplayer
component offers three different game modes where players can assume either
the defensive or offensive sides – or both!
Features
• An intriguing new take on the massively popular tower defense genre: players
lead both offensive and defensive operations
• Ardania: the world of Majesty with three playable races and their unique
environments
• Defense: 24 different upgradeable towers to erect against the invading enemy
• Attack: 24 varied units with diverse attributes to assemble into an offensive
force
• Strong multiplayer component with a variety of game modes for up to four
players
• Interactive environment that affects gameplay
• A wide range of offensive and defensive spells

    Looks cool, I’ve never played any TD game on my PS3 though. The fast paced action somehow does not seem to click for me with a controller.

    The first TD game I played was a Warcraft 3 custom map online, man I loved those.

    Is this a move game?

    @Ajescent: Mmm, since it’s a TD game it SHOULD be one. I see Oly placed a PS Move category tag on the post so maybe he knows something and isn’t telling hehehe.

    @Pedro: You need to get Savage Moon on PSN and My Life as a Darklord on Wiiware!

    Where is the MOVE tag? As far as I know, nothing has been announced for the Move..

    Tower Defense games are awesome.. Pixel Junk Monster, Savage Moon, and Dungeon Defenders are some of the best games releases for the PS3

    Huh, I could have sworn I saw a “PS Move” tag hahaha.

    Yes, TD games are great AND they offer a lot of content for us. We got two free TD minis form PS+ (Vector TD and Fieldrunners) and I played those non-stop for a while.

    Tower Defense i have loved since starcraft and warcraft III. I will want to try this out

    Shit that looks pretty damn visual for a downloadable game :D But I hear a PETA lawsuit coming you were attacking animals with purple stuff. Speaking of Warfcraft it looks like the models are just from that game

    @Darklurkr23: Which wouldn’t be a bad thing.
