Robot Entertainment, creators of the Orcs Must Die! franchise, announced during the PlayStation Experience that their multiplayer game, Orcs Must Die! Unchained will come in 2015.
Orcs Must Die! Unchained finds players joining forces, charging in with teams of heroes that battle head-to-head to attack and defend ancient strongholds. For the first time in Orcs Must Die!, teams of players will be responsible for both sides of the battle, building traps to stop enemy assaults while summoning their own armies to lead in siege against the enemy defense.
Orcs Must Die! Unchained is set in the familiar world of its humorous fantasy predecessors, years after the finale of Orcs Must Die! 2. With the discovery of dozens of new rifts and magical worlds beyond them, heroes have come from far and wide to wage all-out war for control of these valuable gateways.
In the years since, the War Mage and Sorceress have rebuilt the once-mighty Order. Their new enemy, the Unchained, is not the mindless horde defeated twice before, but instead an organized army led by powerful heroes.
In development for PlayStation 4 and PC, the PC version of Orcs Must Die! Unchained is currently in Closed Beta.
