Robot Entertainment has announced that Orcs Must Die! is now available for purchase and download on Steam for $14.99. Today’s release is one day earlier than originally scheduled. Players who purchase the game before 8:00am PST on Wednesday, October 12, 2011 will still receive the special pre-purchase “Knight of the Order” costume for the War Mage.
Patrick Hudson, CEO of Robot Entertainment said:
“The pre-launch buzz around Orcs Must Die! has been outstanding. We have an opportunity to release the game a little bit early so we jumped at the chance to let players start massacring orcs a day early.”
Orcs Must Die! is an action-strategy game that challenges players to defend fortresses under siege. With a wide variety of traps and weapons to choose from, Orcs Must Die! dares players to find the best ways to hack, launch, flatten, gibletize, and incinerate an endless army of filthy orcs and their vile allies. Orcs Must Die! features a vibrant look, addictive gameplay, and a blatant disregard for the welfare of orcs.
