Back in March last year, Petersen Games announced in collaboration with Robot Entertainment to launch the first Orcs Must Die! board game. The project went live on Kickstarter and was quickly funded within 24 hours of going live. The huge wave of passion for the board game saw Petersen Games add additional stretch goals. The result was a comprehensive offering of an awesome board game complete with two versions for the Order and Unchained and a raft of extra bonus heroes and boss packs.
If you have been backing the campaign you will have no doubt been eager to have your board game delivered. The good news is that in todays Kickstarter update we now have some provisional shipping times for US based backers. Not only that we have our first look of the actual product in the flesh! Sandy has put together the first unboxing video showing both the Order and Unchained sets along with all the Kickstarter sweet sweet bonus content! Check out the unboxing video below to see the treats that will soon be heading your way in the mail!Dean13 Oct 20168469
MMORPG have interviewed Chris Rippy to talk about how things are shaping up with the re-work of OMDU following the announcement to focus on survival gameplay and head back to the OMD 1 & 2 roots. Spearking to MMORPG, Chris says:
As much as we loved Siege, we made the tough call to devote our full focus to Survival. I will say, since we’ve made the decision, the game has progressed by leaps and bounds. It feels great, we’re able to be more innovative, and I think fans of the franchise will be really happy with the results.
It sounds like Robot are working really hard on the next major update to the game. Sure things are still quiet – but the great minds at Robot Entertainment are putting together all what they need to do for a great new OMDU Survival mode.
MMORPG: Once the change happens, where does the game go from here? How will it grow and evolve as a live service over time now?
CR: We’ve got a lot planned. Certainly you’ll see more maps, minions, heroes, and gear, but we have bigger plans than just that. Without being specific, we definitely want to bring more story into the game soon. We’ve also got some great plans around new ways to play the game that we’re really excited about. Of course, everything we add to the game will support the core OMD! Experience. We’ve got some great stuff coming soon!
There is alot to get excited about! Be sure to check out the full interview on MMORPG on the link below. They also have some sweet new OMDU screenshots!
