Orcs Must Die! Unchained
Orcs Must Die! Unchained is a fast-paced Tower Defense action game in which teams of heroes battle to defend ancient strongholds, building traps to stop the enemy assault.
The game is created and developed by Robot Entertainment and will be available on PC and PS4. It is currently in open beta.
Orcs Must Die! Unchained is currently under-going transition with the 5v5 Siege content due to be removed from the game in the next update. Research from the open beta player data revealed that players have shown that there is more demand for gameplay closer to the classic OMD1 and 2 tower defense style, rather than the 5v5 MOBA gameplay. As such from the next update Orcs Must Die! Unchained focus will be on the 3 player PvE Survival mode.

Features[edit | edit source]
Attack and Defend![edit | edit source]
This is a fortress siege action game, meaning your team is responsible for both attacking the enemy base AND defending your own base. It's up to you guys to coordinate trap placement in the defense lanes and to escort minions down the offense lanes. As minions invade, your rift gets more and more unstable... if the enemy gets twenty points worth of minions into your rift, you lose!
Choose Your Hero![edit | edit source]
Old friends the War Mage and Sorceress return with the company of characters like Blackpaw, Midnight, Stinkeye, and Ivy to continue the age-old battle of 'Keep your grubby paws out of our business!'. Whether players prefer the adorable oddness of the Order, trying to uphold the use of rift magic for the good of all or the more serious grandiosity of the Unchained, trying to seize what power they can, there’s definitely a Hero for everyone.
Heroes in the game are balanced to be better defenders or leaders, meaning they have specific abilities tailored to be more effective on defense or offense. There are ranged and melee Heroes, Heroes with elemental damage affinities, and Heroes with support and Control effects.
Collect & Customize![edit | edit source]
Players can customize their play experience by acquiring different types of minions and traps, cool pieces of gear, trait cards, and even Vanity skins for Heroes! Everyone gets to create their own deck combinations and play the game the way they want to play.
