Defense Grid 2 Twitch stream

Every weekend, Windows Central streams an Xbox One game or two on Twitch for 1-2 hours and gives out free games to the cool people who join us during the stream. Last week, we streamed Warframe and dished out prizes to 16 lucky viewers.

Tonight, we'll be playing Defense Grid 2 from Hidden Path Entertainment and 505 Games. We want you guys there, chatting along. So we're giving out Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Steam codes for the game!

Just follow me on, watch along, and participate in chat for your chance to win. You can also watch the event right here live or after the fact.

Defense Grid 2

The original Defense Grid made a big name for itself on Steam and Xbox 360 a few years back. Now Hidden Path has returned with a bigger and better sequel on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Steam.

A traditional tower defense game, players must set up defenses on every level in order to protect the stage's cores from an onslaught of enemy invaders. While you fight off the enemies, several AI advisors will offer advice and narration.

Defense Grid 2 packs not only a massive campaign, but full online co-op and competitive multiplayer support. You won't find a better tower defense game on Xbox One anytime soon. See Jonathan's review for more details.

The Contest

We'll be streaming Defense Grid 2 for one hour Saturday, starting at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific). During that time, we'll be giving out a total of 13 game codes:

  • 5 for Xbox One
  • 4 for Playstation 4 (US)
  • 3 for Steam

To enter, just follow me at and tune in during the stream. You can watch the stream right here in this post, but you need to actually participate in the stream chat to have a chance at winning. We'll deliver codes to the winners via Twitch message (PM) during the stream. No code begging!

What's the best way to experience Twitch? If you don't have a PC, you can get the Xbox One or Xbox 360 Twitch app and watch from the comfort of your couch. Or grab the unofficial app Livegaming for Windows Phone. It has plenty of great features, including the ability to chat along with your fellow viewers. Unfortunately you'll have to add our channel to your favorites from the Twitch website, outside of the app.

I'll be available for a few minutes before and after the stream if you have any questions or just want to say hi. If you enjoy the stream, I'd love for you to tune in to future streams. For now, we'll do one every weekend, with a few non-contest streams throughout the week.
