Defense Grid 2 is the sequel to Hidden Path Entertainment's 2009 critically-acclaimed Xbox Live Arcade tower defense strategy game.

And indeed Defense Grid 2 is easily the best tower defense game on Xbox One right now.
If you're someone that likes tower defense games, but feel as if most of them are too easy, perhaps this is the game you need to play. Defense Grid 2 has layers and layers of complexity.
