Publisher Gameforge and developer Robot Entertainment, together with Sony announced the PS4 version of the action-laden multiplayer game Orcs Must Die! Unchained. The announcement was recently made as part of the events at PlayStation Experience, which took place in Las Vegas on the 6th and 7th of December.
Carsten van Husen, CEO of Gameforge commented: ‘Free to play has worked out excellently for us on the PC. Now, in partnership with Robot Entertainment, we are taking it to consoles: Orcs Must Die! Unchained is truly something special and is the ideal launch pad for us on the current generation of consoles. Clearly, Sony shares this opinion and has decided to make OMD!U a flagship title for the free-to-play offerings on their console.’
Orcs Must Die! Unchained is currently in its closed beta phase for PC and is continually being tweaked, expanded and improved, thanks to the valuable feedback provided by the player community. The title can be described as a fortress siege game, borrowing mechanics from tower defence games as well as gameplay elements from enthralling third-person shooters. The mix creates strategically challenging PvP battles for up to 5 players on each team.
On widely-varying maps, the aim of the game is to stop the opposing team and their armies of AI controlled minions from getting to and destroying your rift. Orcs Must Die! Unchained offers a wide selection of vastly different character classes: brutish barbarians, deft archers and magical mages. Each hero has their own unique skills and abilities, whose tactical use, combined with the strengths of the other teammates, helps to turn the tide towards victory or defeat. Alongside class-specific weapons, skills and spells, players also have a wide range of traps at their disposal, which can be placed and replaced with improved versions at any time.
