Orcs Must Die! Unchained, Aims to Bring New Flavour to the MOBA Genre

April 11, 2014

Developer Robot Entertainment have today announced Orcs Must Die! Unchained, a blend of the collectable card game genres and that of Dota-like “MOBAs.”

As with standard MOBA games, players are split into two teams of five and are tasked with attacking the enemy base, along with an assortment of minions. However, the third person camera style and trap based combat of Orc Must Die! is intended to bring a new flavour to the genre.

In Orcs Must Die! Unchained, players will be able to order minions around, directing them into various lanes.

Orcs Must Die! Unchained is intended to be a F2P experience, but CEO Patrick Hudson says that the company aims to balance the way this system works


. The game is intended to draw inspiration from that of League of Legends, with a large roster of colourful heroes on both sides of the conflict.
