Orcs Must Die! 3 Will Escape to Consoles and PC on July 23

Fantasy tower defense series finally returning to console

When Robot Entertainment released Orcs Must Die! 3 out of nowhere last year, the news was bittersweet. Many of us were glad to see a new game in the co-op action-tower defense series but less excited about it being a Stadia exclusive. Thankfully, it was only a timed exclusive, and Orcs Must Die! 3 will now be coming to Xbox, PlayStation, and Steam in July.

Orcs Must Die! is a tower defense series in which players directly control a hero on the battlefield. The action takes place from a third-person action perspective similar to that of Smite. Players must work together to place straps and fight off the invading orc menace in order to succeed.

Orcs Must Die! 3 Features: 

  • More of Everything - Orcs Must Die! 3 is everything fans loved about the first two games and more. More orcs, more traps, more weapons, more upgrades and even better looking. It’s cranked up to at least eleven.

  • New Story - Play through a brand new story set more than 20 years after Orcs Must Die! 2, where the War Mage and Sorceress have rebuilt the order and trained new young apprentices.

  • War Scenarios - All new War Scenarios deliver on the promise of massive scale first set out in Orcs Must Die! Confront overwhelming armies of orcs outside on the battlefields surrounding the castles. Thin out waves of orcs hundreds strong before they breach the walls and crash your rift.

  • War Machines - You’re going to need new weapons of death and destruction to handle these hordes. War Machines are traps on an oversized scale. Lay down your mega flip trap and launch dozens of ragdolling orcs. Mount your mega boom barrel launcher and unleash pyrotechnic glory.

  • It Never Stops - The legions of orcs keep coming long after the story is completed. Etch your name into the orc-slaying hall of fame through Weekly Challenges or see how long you can survive in Endless Mode.

  • Take Drastic Steps - Orcs Must Die! 3 comes with the Drastic Steps campaign and content for free, including terrifying flying enemies, heroic war guardians and of course more tools for orc destruction!

  • Scramble to Survive - The new Scramble Mode pits you against vile orcs who evolve with increasingly difficult and sinister tricks up their chunky sleeves. But each level you survive, you collect your own modifiers to fight back with!

Although the first Orcs Must Die! appeared on consoles in 2011, the sequel, Orcs Must Die! 2, only came to PCs. Thus, Orcs Must Die! 3 will be the first game in the series to hit consoles in ten years - unless we count the now decommissioned Orcs Must Die! Unchained spinoff. Where does the time go?

Orcs Must Die! 3 will come to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 (and PlayStation 5 via backwards compatibility), and Steam on July 23. It will cost $29.99 and will feature 2-player online co-op. Learn more at OrcsMustDie.com or preorder the Xbox, PlayStation, or Steam versions now.
