St. Patrick’s Day means something different to everyone. Some celebrate the rich cultural heritage of their ancestors from the Emerald Isle while others don green and get overly excited about green food coloring in their beer. Whatever the approach, St. Patrick’s Day is about celebrating life and the people around us. Whether intentional or accidental, Xbox Live is getting into the spirit of togetherness for the rest of March by adding Dungeon Defenders to its Games with Gold promotion.

Developer Trendy Entertainment is set to a release a sequel for Dungeon Defenders in Spring 2014 (Trendy Entertainment, 2014), so it is no secret that the game has been out for a while. Originally released in October of 2011 on Xbox Live Arcade, Dungeon Defenders has entertained players for years with its hybrid gameplay of action RPG and tower-defense.

In Dungeon Defenders, players must protect the Eternia crystals from hordes of monsters using one of four heroes: the wizard Apprentice, the Elf archer Huntress, the acrobatic Monk, and the sturdy Squire. Each class has a distinct set of skills and traps that cater to different styles of play. While the game offers a slew of fun challenges and special holiday-themed events, Dungeon Defenders is also one of the relatively few games available on the Xbox 360 that offers both multiplayer gameplay over Xbox Live and local co-op. Call over some company, pour some pints*, and enjoy gaming with friends in the same room on St. Patrick’s Day and the rest of March.

*Always drink responsibly, and never drive while under the influence of anything that affects your judgment or motor control.
