March 1, 2016 - Legion TD 2 (LTD2), the first competitive tower defense game for PC, just launched a Kickstarter campaign at LTD2 is the successor to the hugely popular Warcraft 3 mod, Legion TD, which inspired StarCraft II’s Squadron TD and Dota 2’s Legion TD: Reborn. Now the creators of the original sensation are redefining the tower defense genre. Find out more at

LTD2 takes the strategic base-building of classic tower defenses and pushes things to the next level. Instead of constructing buildings, you deploy and upgrade dynamic fighters that come to life. Rather than beat the stage or solve the puzzle once, you coordinate with teammates to defeat intelligently-adapting opponents. With a wide array of strategies, LTD2 offers a unique experience with every game. The closed beta launches with 4 playable legions (races) and over 50 unique fighters.

“You’ve got to think ahead. Which fighters should you deploy? How should you position them? Your choices determine how your fighters engage and maneuver in battle,” said Brent ‘Lisk’ Batas, Lead Designer of LTD2. “This is our opportunity to put the strategy back into real time strategy games, which we feel have become more about muscle memory and less about smart decision-making.”

LTD2 is being developed by AutoAttack Games (AAG), an independent game studio led by the same team that created the original Legion TD. With deep roots in modding, AAG believes in providing content-creation tools, developer APIs, and open access to data. LTD2 will support modding and is not only a game, but also a platform for creativity.

AAG launched a Kickstarter campaign to usher LTD2 through closed beta, which is on track to release this year. After the beta stabilizes, the developers will be adding additional content and improving and balancing the game for years to come. Check out the Kickstarter and watch the gameplay trailer at
