505 Games and Hidden Path Entertainment have announced that the sequel to the 2008 tower defense hit Defense Grid: The Awakening will launch on September 23. Hidden Path Entertainment hosted demos of Defense Grid 2 during gamescom last week, and showcased the game's user-created content tool, DG Architect.

Gamers interested in Defense Grid 2 can pre-order on Steam. In addition to receiving ten percent off the launch price, players who pre-order Defense Grid 2 will receive immediate access to the beta (currently only for Windows users). As more people pre-order, additional incentive tiers will be unlocked, including the original Defense Grid digital art book, a free copy of the Containment expansion to Defense Grid: The Awakening, and more.

Defense Grid 2 will release for PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
