    Great news for Orcs Must Die! fans – its your lucky day as Robot have just announced the next OMD game – Orcs Must Die! Unchained, or OMDU for short! IGN has the scoop. OMDU is the biggest game to date in pretty much every way – bigger levels, more playable characters, deeper deck / inventory system, more enemies and of course even more traps, whats more this is all free-to-play!

    Time to get back in the action! Bigger and better than ever before.

    Not only is it bigger and better than ever before, OMDU is a radical change to the gameplay. Now for the first time players will be going head to head against themselves to defend and attack strongholds. Thats right OMDU takes a leap into an expansive multiplayer experience! Solo modes are also available as well.

    Lets take a look at how Robot sums it up:

    Orcs Must Die! Unchained is a fast-paced Fortress Siege action game in which teams of heroes battle head-to-head to attack and defend ancient strongholds. For the first time in Orcs Must Die!, teams of players are responsible for both sides of the battle — building traps to stop the enemy assault AND summoning their own armies to lead against the enemy defense.

    OMDU is big, we’re talking up to 5v5 play against friends or global multi player search. To help with this there are a host of new charecters along side the trusty War Mage and Sorceress. OMDU introduces Blackpaw, Midnight, Stinkeye, and Bloodspike into the fray plus many more. This time the hero’s aren’t all human either!

    The Motley Crew – Just a selection of the hero’s playable in OMDU.

    The decks and inventory system has been completely overhauled, decks are deeper than before and are much better organised. There is also a full upgrade system in place to power up your inventory. Heroes, weapons and traps can all be upgraded not to mention upgrades to minions who will prove to be essential in helping turn the tide of battle.
