Gameforge and developer Robot Entertainment have expanded Orcs Must Die! Unchained, ready for the second phase of the closed beta.
The latest version of Orcs Must Die! Unchained comes with lots of new changes as a result of tester feedback. The new Trait Builder lets you personalise and strengthen individual heroes, enabling you to adapt them to your style of play, while heroes are also now set as either attackers or defenders, allowing for a clearer tasking within the team.
A ‘traditional’ defender character will still be able to wreck havoc on the front lines and attacking heroes will be able to contribute in defence. Heroes now gain experience during battles, which allows them to rise to a maximum level of 8 within a match, opening up a variety of additional enhancements, buffs and skills to choose from.
The base game tempo has also been reduced ever so slightly, allowing players to set up their battles in a more tactical manner. The revamped environments bring more than just an improved version of Cliffside Clash: a lot of the improved hero skills are now accompanied by a short animation.
Orcs Must Die! Unchained is the third part of the Orcs Must Die series from game development studio Robot Entertainment and is a mixes the gameplay of tower defence third-person shooter games. The complete version of the game is set for release later this year as a free PC game.
