The bots have been hard at work at the studio on the next big update to Orcs Must Die! Unchained. The next update, version 1.6 will bring major changes with the removal of siege mode and the renewed focus on Survival. One of the objectives of the next release is to bring back that classic OMD feel from the previous games to OMDU. According to the blog post on the OMD website, Robot has aimed to deliver this in the following ways:
- Faster and More Furious – Faster hero speeds, squishier minions, bigger physics – the classic OMD feeling has never looked and felt quite so glorious.
- Every Hero Rebuilt for Survival – Never again will players fear that their favorite hero can’t keep up in Survival Mode. Every single hero in the game has been rebalanced for Survival, giving players tons of hero combination options.
- All New Map Structure – There’s a whole new way to play through your favorite Battlegrounds in OMDU’s new difficulty tiers. Players must prove their worth before moving up to the next big challenge.
- Brand New Prologue – All new players will start with a brief campaign to get them started with all of the OMD knowledge they’ll need to bust heads in the Survival Battlegrounds.
The new prologue will be an great way of engaging new players to the game, and it will be backed by a small story. All of the heroes are being re-worked to be Survival ready, no longer will you need to worry about effectiveness of some heroes not being so great in the survival mode. More minions, more maps await! Oh, and Mr Moneybags is back too!
