Robot Entertainment has announced that its upcoming third-person action tower-defense-style game, Orcs Must Die!, is coming to Xbox Live Arcade and PC this summer. The developer has also revealed that Microsoft Studios will be publishing and distributing the game, which just made a PlayStation Network release look unlikely.
A limited run of print versions of the comic will be available at Comic-Con, where Orcs Must Die! will be playable at the Xbox lounge. A digital version of the book will be made available for free this summer.
