Orcs Must Die! Gamescom Screenshots

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
Microsoft has released a handful of new screenshots for their upcoming Xbox LIVE Arcade tactical-defence game Orcs Must Die!. Players will have a variety of traps and defences at their disposal. Skewer them on Floor Spikes, impale them on arrows sprung from the Arrow Walls, blow them up with Boom Barrels, send them flying back to where they came from with Spring Traps, or use a variety of all of the above and more.

As is often the case when a games convention begins, developers and publishers re-release old assets for unknown reasons. This week's Gamescom is no exception, so here are a few more re-released screenshots for you:

The game will be playable at this year's PAX Prime Convention in Seattle, running from August 26th - 28th. Developer Robot Entertainment is billing this event as the "last chance to get your hands on the game before release". As the game is scheduled to release in Summer 2011, we'll assume that the actual release date is not long after the convention finishes. A price is also yet to be confirmed.
