Robot Entertainment has announced that Orcs Must Die! 2 will be releasing on July 30, 2012. That's fairly soon, which ought to be cause for celebration. If you're unsure why people generally seem to dig the original, there's plenty of time left to seek it out.
The sequel's big selling point is the introduction of two-person cooperative play, while the rest of the updates seem to revolve around delivering more of everything. Additionally, the upgrade system has been revamped. While that might not sound like a lot, it's certainly enough to satisfy my wish list.
I hadn't really thought about it until now, but this is probably one of my most anticipated games of the year. Orcs Must Die! was immensely satisfying, even if I did eventually start to feel bad about the atrocities I was committing. The mere mention of co-op play in the sequel has me counting the days until launch.
