What a great surprise! Unexpectedly, Robot Entertainment announced the third game in the Orcs Must Die series and launched it on Google’s game streaming platform. No announcements – nothing! The game just popped up and now is available for everyone who has Google Stadia. Moreover, the game is free for Stadia Pro subscribers…

If you’re like us (no Stadia subscription, but lots of love for Orcs Must Die franchise), don’t worry too much. According to Robot Entertainment, Orcs Must Die 3 will be a timed exclusive and should come to other game platforms in the future. However, the developer didn’t specify when it will happen…

If you never heard about Orcs Must Die before, you should know that it’s a quirky tower defense game where you try to repel hordes of orcs laying out various elaborate traps and fighting against them in third-person combat. The first game in the series debuted in 2011 and was an immediate success. Only a year after the developers decided to release a sequel with Orcs Must Die 2. 8 years later we got our chance to witness the glorious return of our beloved franchise…

Orcs Must Die 3 comes with a few awesome features that are new. According to the team behind the game, the title will bring something called War Scenarios allowing players to fight against 1000+ enemies simultaneously. The new game is running on Unreal Engine 4, giving developers tools to make these massive battles look truly magnificent. It also has a 2-player co-op mode allowing you to kill some orcs together with your friend.

So if you own Stadia, don’t hesitate for too long. If the new game quality-wise is anywhere close to its predecessors, it’s worth every penny. The rest of us will probably wait for the game to release on other platforms as well… And the waiting will be easier with previous games in the series. We got great prices for them both.
