Steamships Ahoy - Dungeon Defenders Eternity [Updated]

Trendy Entertainment announces the release of Dungeon Defenders Eternity, an updated edition of their action/RPG and tower defense game for Windows, OS X, and Linux. This enhances the original game with new content, including unlocks for the upcoming Dungeon Defenders II. Here's the deal: "Dungeon Defenders Eternity has been rebuilt from the ground up. Players can still slice, shoot and pulverize their enemies – or build defenses to do the dirty work for them – alone or with up to three friends. The new title rebalances the game’s heroes, redesigns the loot system and gives players even more tools to survive against the Old One’s army. Moreover, Eternity runs entirely through dedicated servers using playverse, creating a level playing field secure from cheating and hacking." Update: Kotaku notes that the game originally boasted a single-player mode which it does not offer, and that the Steam reviews page for the game is filled with complaints about that, the game's online DRM, and gameplay issues, noting they were not able to run the game themselves (thanks nin). They have the following statement on the situation from Trendy saying the game will be updated soon to include single-player functionality:

We've made it clear in the past that Trendy Entertainment listens intently to the feedback we receive from our passionate fans, and today those fans did not hesitate to share their thoughts with us over our latest release, Dungeon Defenders Eternity.

Many of our loyalist fans have wondered where single player and private sessions went in today's release. In order to minimize hacking and cheats in the game, Eternity is now hosted on our own servers. Turning these features off in our initial release of Eternity was related to our fear that the server costs would be exponential, and cause us to lose significant money. We realize that jeopardizing the loyalty of fans far outweighs the risk of profit - and it was a mistake. We're deeply committed to maintaining that relationship with our players, and to that end, we will be re-releasing the game within the next few hours with single-player functionality fully integrated.

Beyond that immediate change, we're paying close attention to the other concerns being raised by the community and will keep everyone updated with further developments as soon as they're available.
