Lost Adventures DLC for Orcs Must Die available today

Robot Entertainment has today made available the second DLC pack for Orcs Must Die on Steam. This DLC pack is perfect for those who have completed the main campaign and are looking for some extra challenges. This DLC pack includes 5 new exciting fortresses to play, four of which are completely new and original and one is the reverse of one of my favourite levels “The Tower” where the Orcs will now be heading down hill rather than up! Each of these levels can be played on all three difficulty settings which also means there is room for an extra 50 extra skulls to collect – perfect to upgrade your entire set of traps from the last DLC! The new levels appear as a separate campaign in-game so you can also enjoy them if you havnt yet finished unlocking the main campaign levels. Read moreRead more

Orcs Must Die! XBLA Review

So the date is finally upon us – October 5th the release date of Orcs Must Die! (OMD) on Xbox Live Arcade. I have been playing OMD! over the last few days and have been extremely impressed with the game. OMD is the first original IP game to be launched by Robot Entertainment. For a number of people at the studio who worked previously at Ensemble this is the first game outside of the traditional RTS field. For those people this game is a breath of fresh air allowing for a new type creativity to flourish, and it certainly has done. OMD is a third person action strategy game. The goal of the game is simple – kill Orcs, kill them in any way you can. Players can choose between weapons, traps and magic to do the job. The Orcs must be killed before a certain number reach the rifts at the other end of the level. Otherwise its game over! Read moreRead more
