Defend your fortress in Orcs Must Die!

Orcs are invading your fortress, and you must use a variety of weapons, spells, allies, and cleverly-placed traps to stop the rampaging mob. That’s the premise behind the 3D action strategy game Orcs Must Die! From Robot Entertainment.

Orcs Must Die! gives you 24 different fortresses to defend across a story-driven Campaign mode, with a Nightmare Mode and a skull ranking system and online leaderboard to extend gameplay even further.

You’ll face 11 unique enemies, which in addition to orcs include ogres and flying hellbats. Enemies appear in ever-more-challenging waves, and if you let too many of them through then it’s Game Over. Luckily, you’ll have 6 or-killing weapons and spells (from the crossbow and bladestaff to elemental magic), and 19 traps and minions to deploy strategically throughout the fortress – whether it’s placing archers on the high ground to thin out the orcs’ ranks, or deadly spike traps, spinning blades, and flaming brimstone to stop the orcs in their tracks.

Orcs Must Die! will be available starting Oct. 12 on Steam.
