Sometimes, video games are meant to be nothing more than glorious battles in which you try and kill as many enemies as you can. The Orcs Must Die! series has been just that, and it’s been very successful, with two fan-favorite games having been released since the series started. But now, with the third entry in the series via Orcs Must Die! Unchained, the team is bringing new threats, new modes, and a whole new level of fun to killing Orcs and monsters.
Long story short, you play as one of group characters who are trying to save their world from an onslaught on monsters and Orcs. The twist with Orcs Must Die! Unchained is that you get to play the game with friends in team-based combat. So now, you’re not alone, as you have someone with you to help beat down the hordes of monsters.
That’s the other thing that’s different this time around. Before, the Orcs were “mindless hordes” that just wanted to do one thing. But now, they’re more organized and will give you a much greater challenge. You’ll need not only to be the best you can be with your character, but make sure your team is aware of what’s going on at all times. Plus, in true Orcs Must Die! fashion, the castle and areas you’re defending will have plenty of traps and tricks to help you trip up your foes.
All of the classic modes in the game are returning for Orcs Must Die! Unchained, including Survival Mode, Daily Quests, and a brand new mode called Sabotage. This new mode has one group of warriors defending a Rift point from a horde of monsters, while another group is in an “alternate dimension” and are using spells and traps to mess with the heroes!
Orcs Must Die! Unchained is free-to-play right now on Steam.
