Orcs Must Die! PAX Prime 2011 Trailer (HD) 14.89MB - 58 downloads - 15 August, 2011
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.
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.
Show the orcs what it's like to live (briefly) in their own miniature version of Tornado Alley. Send bolts of chain lightning through four orcs at once, or conjure up a powerful storm over the heads of an entire mob and watch the sparks fly!
What's the best cure for an orc's migraine? Keeping hitting him on the head until he's dead! The pounder gets the job done at a highly reasonable price. Throw a few tar traps or a decoy underneath; by the time the orcs think to look up, it'll be too late.
Take orcs for the ride of their (short and miserable) lives with this low-cost floor trap. Blasts of warm, soothing steam not only send your enemies sky-high, but also soften up those rough orc hides just in time for a crossbow bolt to punch straight into the tender organs underneath.
Orcs Must Die! Trap Spotlight: Fire Bracers Trailer (HD) 12.03MB - 62 downloads - 20 June, 2011
Prefer your orcs rare or medium-well? Too bad! The fire bracers can only cook an orc one way - well done! But you won't care how overdone the meat is when an entire wave of enemies stumbles through a fire wall or burns up in a fireball's explosion. You'll be too busy basking in the warm glow of success.
Sporting razor-sharp teeth, a fast loping gait, and powerful claws, Gnoll Hunters don't share the orc mob's singular focus on getting to the rift. These deadly beasts are only interested in one thing - killing the War Mage and his allies! When you hear their chilling howl, watch your back and ready your spells. These terrifying foes will vault over barricades and speed past traps, and when they snare you with their magical swords, you're in for the fight of your life.
Expensive, high-damage, razor-sharp blades of pure carnage, wall blades are an excellent choice for narrow chokepoints and heavily-trafficked hallways. For smooth operation, remember to clean out excess hair and bone every couple of weeks.
Orcs Must Die! Trap Spotlight: Spring Trailer (HD) 11.52MB - 61 downloads - 23 May, 2011
Use the cheap and effective spring trap to launch pesky enemies through the air. Where they land is up to you - a pool of lava, a pit full of acid, or even straight into another trap! Beware heavier enemies such as ogres who prevent the spring trap from firing.
Orcs Must Die! Trap Spotlight: Wind Belt Trailer (HD) 12.14MB - 59 downloads - 17 May, 2011
Harness the power of the wind and kill orcs the eco-friendly way! Shove, push, and launch them into the sharpest, pointy-est, boiling-est spots in the fortress. No matter where you blow them, you can't go wrong!
Orcs Must Die! Trap Spotlight: Boom Barrel Trailer (HD) 11.87MB - 58 downloads - 4 May, 2011
Boom goes the dynamite! Drop these tasty explosive treats in tight corridors, light them up with your crossbow, then sit back and watch orc giblets paint the walls red. For maximum kill-streaky goodness, wait until large groups of enemies are clustered around a boom barrel before pulling the trigger.
Orcs Must Die! Trap Spotlight: Arrow Wall Trailer (HD) 11.99MB - 80 downloads - 29 April, 2011
Who doesn't like a bunch of arrows to the face? Orcs, that's who! Place these deadly beauties at the end of fortress corridors to cover an unguarded approach, or stick two across a hall from each other to shred a whole legion of enemies in a devastating crossfire.
