The PlayStation Experience keynote held over the weekend in Las Vegas had many exciting announcements. Robot Entertainment – the highly creative developers of the highly acclaimed Orcs Must Die! franchise – announced that their highly popular free-to-play series would be making it’s PS4 debut in 2015.
“We’re very excited to welcome PlayStation 4 players to our community,” said Robot Entertainment CEO Patrick Hudson. “Orcs Must Die! Unchained delivers a unique blend of tower defense and competitive multiplayer action along with the game’s signature humor. We can’t wait for PS4 fans to jump in and start slaying Orcs!”
In development for PS4 and PC, the PC version of Orcs Must Die! Unchained is currently in closed beta and is also expected to release in 2015.
Orcs Must Die! Unchained is set in the familiar world of its humorous fantasy predecessors, years after the finale of Orcs Must Die! 2. With the discovery of dozens of new rifts and magical worlds beyond them, heroes have come from far and wide to wage all-out war for control of these valuable gateways. In the years since Orcs Must Die! 2, the War Mage and Sorceress have rebuilt the once-mighty Order. Their new enemy, the Unchained, is not the mindless horde defeated twice before, but instead an organized army led by powerful heroes.
