Players can soon experience the fast-paced fun of the latest installment.
Robot Entertainment has revealed closed beta details for Orcs Must Die! Unchained. You can register at the official site for a chance at a testing code or purchase one of the Founder's Packs. The game is slated for a late 2014 PC digital download release.
The beta kicks off with an all-new map and three never-before-seen heroes in addition to the ten powerful Order and Unchained heroes already live and playable in the alpha. Players will also get to experience the brand new deck editing system in the game so that they use the best combination of traps, minions and more to take out their opponents. To celebrate the start of the closed beta, free-to-play hero rotations will be introduced and players will be able to get their hands on one of the new heroes each weekend throughout late June and early July. Time to sign-up, whip out the traps and pile up the bodies as you defend your rift with your friends.
- Attack and Defend - White-knuckle Fortress Siege action puts you into the thick of competitive siege warfare.
