Robot Entertainment today announced that Orcs Must Die! 2 now supports Steam Workshop and will soon be getting Steam Trading Cards. When it released last summer, Orcs Must Die! 2 gave players a broad new Spellbook filled with original and classic traps, each with unlockable upgrades. Robot Entertainment is now giving War Mages the tools to expand their magical arsenal even further.
Orcs Must Die! 2 Workshop Features:
* Craft New Traps, Trinkets, and Weapons – Using existing Spellbook items, War Mages can construct a dizzying array of new traps to take into battle. Combine existing 3D models with new textures, new stats, new upgrade designs, and new visual effects to craft and share your best orc-maiming ideas.
* New Onslaughts – Modify the creatures and timing for waves in existing Orcs Must Die! 2 fortresses and caves to create new and challenging experiences. Did you already beat the game on Nightmare? Now you can create your own ultra-Nightmare Mode to put your skills to the test. Share your custom onslaught levels and campaigns with the community on Workshop.
* New Costumes – Replace the textures on any of the sixteen War Mage and Sorceress costumes in Orcs Must Die! 2. Create a huge closet of intimidating new costumes to strike fear into the hearts of orcs.
Regarding Steam Trading Cards, Robot Entertainment revealed that players will be able to collect trading cards just for playing Orcs Must Die! 2, then craft their cards into special game badges. Crafting game badges earns players cool new Steam items like emoticons, profile backgrounds, coupons and more.
