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!
ReadySet Heroes is coming!
If this big news wasn’t already enough, Robot’s other project also in development is soon to be landing on a PS4 near you. ReadySet Heroes the multiplayer party dungeon crawler is set to land on October 1st 2019! That’s just a few months away. There is a brand new trailer too. Here we can see more of the dungeon crawling and different party challenges. It won’t be long now until you’ll be picking your hero to take into battle!
Available for pre-order now on the Playstation store which includes an exclusive pre-order bonus crown, skin and more!
The time has come to see what has been cooking at the Robot Entertainment factory for the past year. The answer has been revealed today as part of PlayStation State of Play. The answer is ReadySet Heroes! A brand new and original game from Robot Entertainment featuring fast paced multiplayer dungeon crawling. Players choose their own hero who starts with nothing more than a humble wooden sword. Players then take their hero into randomly generated dungeons to do battle and solve puzzles. The twist however is that there is another team competing with the player doing the exact same dungeon with the winner being the team that finishes it the fastest!
The game features single player or co-op play against a team competing in the same dungeon. Once a team reaches the end of the dungeon, depending on their performance they will be equipped to take on the other players in a final showdown to find out who is the worthy dungeon champion and the mightiest hero. The final showdowns take the form of a variety of different activities from an all out arena battle or maybe something a bit more bizarre like snail racing!
The main mode has everything you would expect from a dungeon crawler. Players solve puzzles, grab loot, defeat enemies – all against the clock to try and beat the other team. Items you collect like armour and spells help you in the longer term once you reach the final showdown. The game is designed for short, quick play sessions with friends. One might call it a party dungeon crawler!
Check out the brand new first look trailer below.
Robot Entertainment CEO has penned a blog post on the Playstation website talking more about the game. Be sure to check that out to read more. The game will be launching in 2019 with date TBC. It will be available on PS4 for sure and there will not be a requirement for PlayStation Plus. Other consoles and platforms are to be announced and not ruled out.
Keep a close eye out for more news and information on this exciting brand new original game, fresh out of the factory from Robot! Remember this is just one of at least two games that Robot has been working on!
