Orcs Must Die! Unchained, the latest title in the third-person tower-defense series, will enter Closed Beta starting Friday, June 27, developer Robot Entertainment has announced.
At the time of writing, the game is still in its Alpha Phase, and for Beta, Robot Entertainment is preparing to add three additional heroes, a new map, and a new deck editing system, which should allow players to create multiple trap and creature combinations.
You can register on the game’s official website for a chance to enter the Closed Beta, or you can guarantee a spot by purchasing one of the Founder’s Packs. Unlike the other 2 previous games, Orcs Must Die! Unchained will go on a free-to-play route when it’s released. However, if you want to try the game early, you can start playing the Alpha today and get into the Closed Beta by buying Founder’s Pack for $20, The War Mage Pack for $60, or The Master Founder’s Pack for $150. Each tier comes with a set of bonuses, such as exclusive hero skins, additional heroes and in-game currency. For more information, you can check the official website here.
Orcs Must Die! And Orcs Must Die! 2 offered a fresh spin on the tower-defense genre, by creating a more action oriented game, where you had to defend against hordes of orcs, using traps and fighting yourself in a third-person perspective. Now, Orcs Must Die! Unchained changes the formula a little bit, introducing the so called “Fortress Siege” mode, in which a team of heroes defends a fortress, whilst another team attacks it.
