Robot announces Orcs Must Die

Robot Entertainment, the studio formed of ex-Ensemble developers, have announced their first project. Orcs Must Die, as it’s titled, comes in downloadable form, and will be out on consoles and PC sometime this year.

The game, described as a “white-knuckle blend of action and strategy”, is all about killing orcs. And it’ll offer a “wide variety” of weapons and traps to do so! It promises “addictive gameplay” and an obvious “blatant disregard for the welfare of orcs.” They’re scum, anyhow.

“Don’t negotiate with them. Don’t just maim them. You must kill the orcs,” insisted Patrick Hudson, CEO of Robot Entertainment. “Robot exists to make great games that our fans love. Orcs Must Die! is our first original title, and we’re counting on players to do what must be done: drive the orcs into oblivion!”

Check out the debut trailer below. The first set of screenshots can be seen at the gallery.
