Robot Entertainment is dissatisfied with the number of orcs killed so far. The team wants more orcs to die, and it wants you to help. Total orc murders must be up for the year 2012, which can only be achieved with the help of a new game:
This direct sequel will take place hours after the conclusion of the first game, and will feature a new playable character in the form of the sorceress. The war mage is still there too, however, meaning that if you have a friend you can play through the campaign in co-op as well as solo.
Other sequel-standards are promised too, like new traps, a new spellbook, new enemies and a redesigned upgrade system (you’ll now always earn skulls for replaying levels).
Interestingly, Orcs Must Die! 2 has only been announced for the PC so far (the original was also on Xbox Live). It’s scheduled for a summer release and will be playable at PAX East if you happen to be near Boston on 6 April.
