The third DLC instalment for Orcs Must Die! 3 has now arrived. The new DLC introduces a brand new enemy race to the game not seen before in the series, the Tuatara. These are a unique race with new sneaky ranged and assassin units:
- Tuatara Light – The foundation of the Tuatara army. They may be small, but with the Tuatara’s ability to withstand high damage attacks, you may need to rethink how you fight them.
- Tuatara Heavy – The Heavy packs a punch and by punch I mean a big sword.
- Tuatara Ranger – A sneaky ranged unit with deadly accuracy.
- Tuatara Assassin – The Assassin is a player hunter. He brings a unique stealth ability and becomes nearly invisible as he approaches to attack you.
There are five brand new maps including one brand new War Scenario. The new maps feature a unique and stunning new desert theme.
Explore the Fortresses defending the Rifts on the world of the fierce Tuatara. Battle through the ornate and unforgiving Oasis Outpost, launch and gib lizards in the sinking Sand Sea Castle and join in the war against the Tuatara at the Desert Wall.
Brand new gear awaits also including a new awesome hand Gatling gun!
Check out the awesome new “Tipping the Scales” trailer below.

Robot’s Lead Design Director, Jerome Jones has sat down to talk with The Gamer about Orcs Must Die! 3 which is still making good progress towards its launch this year despite the delays caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. The game is on track for release later this year as a timed exclusive on Stadia and then coming to other platforms a bit later after that.
So.. the question on many players might be why Stadia and what does it bring to the table? Also why might some of the problems that other games have faced might not be such a big issue OMD3? In essence they key benefit is the power of cloud computing and that now Robot will be able to greatly scale up the game. Think bigger levels, more minions, more physics. What this means in reality is that players will now be able to step more outside of the castles and place traps outdoors at much bigger scale.
“When first playing a war scenario in OMD! 3,” Jones said, “the army of orcs that comes at you is quite epic! It might even seem unwinnable.” Previously in the OMD! series, players would complete battles within the castle itself, but never had a chance to step outside. Now, the scope of the game will increase dramatically as you leave the castle, where OMD! 3‘s mousetrapping mechanics have been significantly enhanced, and battles will be bigger and more exciting than anything we’ve seen before.
Huge war machines can be set up by players taking out masses of Orcs at once. These will be some of the biggest offensive weapons in players armouries like never seen before, even in Unchained.
However does all this exciting new up scale come with a cost? What about things like lag? Jerome explains this should not be an issue with OMD3:
Stadia has found the most problems with first-person shooters, where an immediate response is expected to get the full effect of the gameplay. OMD! 3‘s tower defense-style of action isn’t as reliant on response time, and any lag that might be there is impossible to detect.
Check out the full article over at The Gamer to see more of Jerome’s thoughts on OMD3 and Stadia. Get excited for the biggest Orcs Must Die! yet, coming later this year!
