The kingdom is once again being overrun by green-skinned monstrosities and you, brave sir/madam, are the only thing standing in their way. In case that was too vague, let me phrase it a slightly different way: Orcs Must Die! 2 has officially launched on Steam.
Taking place a few days following the conclusion of the original game, Orcs Must Die! 2 sees the War Mage joined by a mighty Sorceress. The duo must now use their combined abilities and more than 50 traps, weapons and Guardians to keep a massive army of monsters from getting through the campaign dungeons in this action-heavy tower defense game. The story mode can be played solo or in co-op, and there’s also an Endless Mode and Classic Mode to keep you busy for hours on end.
Further rounding out the new game's enhancements is a redesigned spellbook, which will give access to a broader range of options for setting up your defenses. There's also a new upgrade system, which will allow players to fine-tune their various killing apparatus to their liking.
I was a big fan of the original tower-based action game, Orcs Must Die! and, judging by the current Metacritic score of 87, it looks like the sequel is doing a fine job of living up to the original.
Orcs Must Die! 2 is available through Steam for $14.99. For more details, trailers, screenshots or to pick the game up yourself, head on over to the game's official Steam page.
