Orcs Must Die! 2 Due this Summer

One of the smash hits last year was Orcs Must Die! This action-strategy game pitted you against wave upon wave of orcs intent on escape. At your disposal were some weapons, spells, and a variety of traps. It was your job to kill the orcs and rack up points, but was sadly just a one player affair. However, all of that will soon change when Orcs Must Die! 2 launches this summer. Robot Entertainment is adding in co-op play, a new campaign, more enemies, more defenses, a redesigned upgrade system, and allowing you to buy new items based on how you play. Orcs Must Die! 2 only allows for two players, but that should be more than enough to slay the orcs. The sequel picks up right after the first game and the War Mage is joined by a new, if questionable, ally in the Sorceress, an ex-War Mage responsible for the destruction of the Order.

Owners of the first game will unlock special content in the sequel, and PAX East attendees will be able to check it out this weekend. Orcs Must Die! 2 will launch exclusively on the PC.
