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.

It’s a big week for Robot Entertainment as the studio bounces back with two big pieces of news! Things have been quiet on the news front for sometime, but no longer as Robot has this week announced its next brand new game in the Orcs Must Die! series…
Orcs Must Die! 3
That’s right – the Orcs are back in town! The much loved franchise is set to return to its roots as a single-player / co-op tower defence game much more akin to its predecessors OMD1 and OMD2. There has been a call from the community for sometime to return to the spirit of the first two titles and now Robot Entertainment is set to deliver on this ask thanks to a great partnership with Google and the Stadia platform!
Take a look at this sweet new trailer:
There is a brand new story mode, moving 20 years into the future our trusted heroes War Mage and Sorceress have trained up their own new apprentices to take on the Orc mob. This time however things have been majorly cranked up. Players will be taking on hordes of Orcs like never before. Huge armies now threaten the rift with the numbers of Orcs now bigger than ever compared to previous OMD games. Players will need to make use of huge traps known as war machines to help keep the mob at bay.
This is going to be a truly explosive new game! Due to land in spring 2020 the initial launch will be on Google’s new Stadia platform. There are reasons for this and most notably because Google has been a big part in helping make OMD3 possible as Robot’s CEO, Patrick Hudson explains on Reddit:
After shutting down OMDU, Robot had to downsize our studio. We had re-sized and focused on making smaller games than an OMD game. We didn’t know when or if we would get back to the OMD franchise.
We met with Google to learn more about Stadia for our other projects. We discovered that the people at Google are big fans of OMD. That led to an exploration of what might be possible with an OMD game on Stadia. We both got excited about our ideas and decided to go after it.
OMD3 would not be possible today without Google’s support. They are behind the game in a big way. We’ve hired more developers to bring it to life. It’s the OMD game that fans of the first two games have been wanting, and we’re thrilled that we have the opportunity to make it.
If you’re not planning to look at the Stadia platform, do not fear. The initial release will be a timed exclusive to the Stadia platform but other platforms are due to be announced in due course. In the meantime soak up that brand new sweet OMD3 trailer and get hyped!
