Robot Entertainment have announced that their castle-defence/orc slaughter sim Orcs Must Die! will be published by Microsoft Studios “this summer”.
Although originally touted as coming to ‘consoles’, this announcement rules out a PS3 release. Instead, Orcs Must Die! will be appearing on PC and Xbox 360.
As well as being playable at the upcoming San Diego ComicCon (in the Xbox Lounge of the Hard Rock Hotel, 23-24 July if you happen to be in the area), Robot will be issuing a single issue prequel comic to go with the game. A limited edition print version of this comic will be available (appropriately) at ComicCon for no charge. The later, digital, version will also be free.
