    Have you been keeping an eye on the Orcs Must Die! Unchained Trello? The Trello is where Robot keeps us up-to date with what is coming up in future patches. We’re on 2.5 right now and the details for things we might expect in patch 2.6 are online and ready to view. The Trello board also allows players to up-vote things they most like to see.

    One of the things most upvoted for patch 2.6 and is sure to please alot of people is that there is a new PvE only map on the horizon! Remembering that Orcs Must Die! Unchained us to be the “platform” of all OMD content going forward, its important to remember that Unchained is not just a PvP show, there is more content coming, especially for the PvE front and this new map is one example of working towards that.

    Speaking of PvE also on the menu is a difficulty level selector for Endless will also be coming next patch along with random door openings and random waves should make things even more interesting. Environmental traps are also expected to make a return (remember the rolling log in OMD1?)

    For the dashboard the new crafting and quest system is due to make an appearance along with the heroic dyes. A differential patcher is coming too which should make those with slower connections alot happier. :)

    There is lots more coming so be sure to keep yourself in the know by keeping an eye on the Trello board. https://trello.com/b/MdjpvJn9/orcs-must-die-unchained-release-roadmap

    Also coming around the time if patch 2.6 will be a brand new website for orcsmustdie.com for North America. This was first previewed in Insider Access #46 when Justin (SixOkay) sat down with Robot’s new web designer Lionel Cornelius. For a reminder of that and what’s coming check out the VOD below.
