Robot Entertainment has just announced the sequel to the critically acclaimed, Orcs Must Die! The main problem that critics and fans had with Orcs Must Die! was that there was a lack of co-op play; Robot Entertainment has fixed this in Orcs Must Die! 2 and they also announced that Orcs Must Die! 2 will be playable at PAX East.
Orcs Must Die 2 will put the player back into a battle against the titular Orcs, but this time with backup. Robot Entertainment said they have redesigned the spell book which will give players a wider array of options to kill Orcs, and defend themselves and their base. With a new upgrade system players will be able to take their hard earned currency and put it to work for them by upgrading the skills and towers that they use most.
Robot Entertainment’s CEO Patrick Hudson said “In 2011, we implored players to kill the orcs, as many as possible. Yet, only 3.4 billion orcs have been slaughtered to date. “He seems upset with these numbers and because of this his, and the teams, focus has been on adding another orc killing machine. The ending of the first Orcs Must Die! lead right into its sequel and the War Mage finds himself in another battle against hordes of mindless orcs.
Orcs Must Die! 2 will be exclusively available on PC through digital distribution and if you are one of the lucky people who are going to PAX East head over to booth 1172 and kill some orcs with your friend, foe, or complete stranger.
