It's a good day for tower defense fans as Robot Entertainment has announced a summer release for 'Orcs Must Die! 2'. In a press interview, the game's developer announced the game would be coming in the summer of 2012 and would include a wide variety of new flashy features, the biggest and most desired of which being the ability to play in co-op. The sequel will include:
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. In the interview, Robot Entertainment CEO, Patrick Hudson humorously addressed the highly desired co-op mode that has been added to the series.
In 2011, we implored players to kill the orcs. As many as possible. Yet, only 3.4 billion orcs have been slaughtered to date. The only way we will get to a respectable orc death toll is by adding another killing machine and cooperative play. Bring a friend and destroy the orcs! - Patrick Hudson (CEO, Robot Entertainment)
As an added bonus, players who currently own the first 'Orcs Must Die!' on PC will receive exclusive content in the sequel.
