And it has co-op!!! One of the most sought after features of the first game. How Robot Entertainment managed to make a whole new Orcs Must Die! in one year is impressive and I'm really excited to see it at E3, just like we saw the first Orcs Must Die! at last years E3. It is going to be showing at PAX East, which is next week, and they will have a playable version up for anyone who is attending. There aren't a ton of details about the game yet, but there is a small list of features and a trailer. Storywise you still play the same War Mage, but he will be accompanied by an ex-War Mage that is now a Sorceress.
-New Campaign – Orcs Must Die! 2 features a full campaign that you can play in single-player or with a friend in co-op. Choose to play the campaign as the War Mage, a headstrong hero who charges into danger, or play as the more nuanced Sorceress, a new hero who keeps enemies at bay with mind-control and magic.
-More Enemies – An army of vile new creatures is set to pour through the rifts, and they’ve brought all of your favorite trap-fodder from the original Orcs Must Die! along with them!
-More Defenses – Orcs Must Die! 2 has an enormous armory of new and classic defenses, including an all new assortment of magical trinkets. Use your new spellbook to buy defenses and upgrades the way you choose to, building up your arsenal based on how you play the game.
-New Upgrade System – The skull system has been completely redesigned. You will always earn skulls for replaying levels, and the skulls can be spent on multiple persistent upgrades for each of your defenses.
Now watch the video! I cannot wait. If you don't know Orcs Must Die!, do check out Adam's review.
