New launch trailer celebrates the full PC release of the hysterical action tower defense game

PLANO, Texas – April 19, 2017 – Robot Entertainment announced that its hilarious free-to-play team action tower defense game Orcs Must Die! Unchained launches for PC on Steam and OrcsMustDie.com today. The full release will see the introduction of the brand new game mode "Sabotage”.

The new launch trailer can be found here.

The brand new 3v3 Sabotage mode offers a completely different way to play Orcs Must Die! Unchained. Players assemble a team to defend their rift, while the opposing players will occupy an 'alternate reality' version of the same map, invisible to the enemy team. By protecting their own rift and plunging the defences of their foes into chaos, one team will end the match with the most rift points to claim victory. A video showing the new Sabotage mode in action can be found here.

Orcs Must Die! Unchained takes the award-winning Orcs Must Die! tower defense gameplay and adds both cooperative and competitive team-based action to the mix. Players select one of sixteen heroes and team up with two other friends to defend their rift from ruthless hordes of orcs and minions.
