Robot Entertainment verified what we’ve been expecting to hear at this year’s PC Gaming Show. Orcs Must Die! 3, which is presently only accessible on Google Stadia, will be released on Steam this year.
The third game in the series stays loyal to its roots: it’s a tower defense game with third-person action and a two-player online co-op. Orcs, and occasionally ogres, kobolds, trolls, gnolls, and other standard fantasy nasties want your things, and you have magic weapons and a plethora of traps to stop them. Fire, spikes, spring-loaded medieval weaponry, ceiling maces, poison, rolling barrels, arrows, meat tenderizers, scorching coals, lasers, wall saws, floor saws, and those things from Indiana Jones and Skyrim dungeons that swing out and impale you are all shown in the clip (or Lydia).
Unlike earlier games in the series, OMD! 3 includes War Scenarios that scale up the tower defense to “that amazing siege from the second Lord of the Rings movie” grandeur. Mountable War Machines is another new innovation to help you combat the hordes. These enhancements, as well as the main campaign set 20 years after the events of OMD!2, will be accessible on Steam with “all-new material, features, and enhancements.”
