Robot Entertainment announces Orcs Must Die 2


1:00 PM on 04.02.2012



Apparently, 3.4 billion orc deaths are insufficient for the folks at Robot Entertainment, who have announced the impending sequel to their wave defense game. Orcs Must Die! 2 will add new enemies and traps and features a new campaign which a second player can take the role of the new Sorceress character for some cooperative action. They're also refining the upgrade system to reward players for replaying previously completed stages with a series of persistent trap upgrades.

If you're headed to PAX East, Robot Entertainment will be there with a demo of the new game for you to get your clammy meat fronds on.

I bought Orcs Must Die! but I have to admit to not having played much, due to developing a particular fixation on the somewhat similar Dungeon Defenders. The game has a great sense of humor, though, and I'm keen to get back to it. Suppose I ought to do so before Orcs Must Die! 2 releases this summer on PC. No word yet on whether the game will hit consoles, but here's hoping.

Extrasolar does exoplanet exploration, but it is more than meets the eye

When I was talking to one of the developers of Extrasolar on the show floor at PAX East, I said something that I now regret. "This looks like something I would really like, but might not appeal to a ton of other people." He r...more

Twist and shout with your body, Caitlin Cooke and Bounden

PAX East was completely bonkers this year. There was a marked decrease in big publisher representation, with Microsoft showing strictly old stuff and Nintendo and Sony bowing out completely. The indies more than made up for ...more
