Dungeon Defenders' roster of heroes will soon expand with the addition of a new Barbarian character class. The Barbarian is a melee character so he'll be great for those who like to be out on the front lines.
Barbarians have the unique ability to dual wield weapons, which may make them more powerful than Squires and Countesses. For the moment, Trendy Entertainment is keeping quiet about the Barbarian's stats and the type of defenses he can set up.
Trendy has not yet announced when the Barbarian character will be released though the above screenshot may be a hint he'll arrive along with the second part of the Quest for the Lost Eternia Shards DLC.
