Orcs Must Die! 2 will be released this summer, Robot Entertainment has announced.
The sequel thrusts players and their friends back into battle against a terrifying mob of orcs and other monsters. Robot is promising a redesigned spellbook, offering players a broader range of options to build a deadly arsenal of defences.
Skulls can be invested into an enormous new upgrade system, allowing players to specialise their skills with their favourite methods of burning, grinding, tossing, or dismembering orcs.
"In 2011, we implored players to kill the orcs," said Robot Entertainment CEO Patrick Hudson. "As many as possible. Yet, only 3.4 billion orcs have been slaughtered to date. The only way we will get to a respectable orc death toll is by adding another killing machine and cooperative play." Bring a friend and destroy the orcs!"
Orcs Must Die! 2 begins days after the ending of the original game. The War Mage finds himself suddenly thrust into a new battle against the mindless orc mob. He has a powerful, if questionable, new companion in the Sorceress, an ex-War Mage responsible for the destruction of the Order.
Those who play the first game will unlock exclusive content in the sequel.
