Robot Entertainment announced today that Orcs Must Die! will be playable on PC and Xbox360 at the Robot Entertainment booth (Booth 940) during the 2011 PAX Prime Convention, which runs from August 26th to 28th in Seattle, Washington. This will be your last chance to get your hands on the game before release, so if you’ve been holding off, now’s the time to give in to your orc bloodlust.
Robot Entertainment will also be bringing plenty of extra surprises with them to the show. By visiting the booth and signing up for the Robot Forums, you can earn a free Steam code for an in-game War Mage costume based on the popular Penny Arcade character, the Cardboard Tube Samurai. If real world costumes are more to your liking, brand new Orcs Must Die! shirts, hats, and buttons will be available in the booth, along with the classic Orcs Must Die! and Robot Entertainment shirts. Robot Entertainment will also be giving away printed editions of the Orcs Must Die! prequel comic book to the first 200 people to play the game each day of the show.
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. Orcs Must Die! is rated T by the ESRB, 12+ by PEGI and 16+ by USK, and will be available this year exclusively as a digital download on Xbox Live Arcade and PC.
