Legion TD, a popular Warcraft 3 mod that debuted in 2009, inspired both StarCraft II's Squadron TD and Dota 2's Legion TD: Reborn – as well as possibly autobattlers like Teamfight Tactics and DOTA Underlords.

Legion TD 2 first appeared in 2016 when its developers launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund its development. However, it has a much longer history, dating back to Legion TD, a Warcraft 3 mod released in 2009. The standalone successor's development began in 2014, with Early Access following the successful Kickstarter campaign, and it finally went into full release on Steam on October 1.

Legion TD 2 is a tower defence game with MOBA elements that includes single-player and co-op campaigns as well as 2v2 and 4v4 matchmaking. The basics are straightforward—build an army, defend your king, and eliminate the enemy—but the variety of unique factions and fighters allows for a vast array of offensive and defensive options.

"Some fighters give you strategic advantages in the early game," according to the Steam page. "Others allow for powerful late-game synergies."

PCGamer claims that In a Reddit AMA, project lead Brent "Lisk" Batas stated that the developers intend to continue working on the game after it has been released, with new content, gameplay updates, and improvements. He also emphasised how far Legion TD 2 has progressed since its days as a Warcraft 3 mod, calling it "much more fun to learn."

"There's a tutorial, a cooperative campaign, 5 tiers of AIs, weekly challenge mode, sandbox mode, and much, much better UI for things like recommended value," Lisk explained. "There's also an in-game Game Coach who provides advice based on your performance. If it's any consolation, the top player in season 7 (earlier this year) only started playing that season."

As of now, the launch seems to be going well: Legion TD 2 received 23,000 new players over the weekend, according to the developers, and it currently has a "mostly positive" user rating on Steam, which includes the Early Access period. It's on sale for 20% off ($16/£12/€13.50) until October 8.
