PS4 Version Of Orcs Must Die: Unchained Releasing This July

Robot Entertainment has announced a release date for the PlayStation 4 version of Orcs Must Die: Unchained. The tower defense game is coming to Sony’s console on July 18.

Unchained is the third installment in the Orcs Must Die series. The title was released earlier this year for PC, though it had been available for the platform in open beta since 2014. Like other tower defense games, Unchained tasks players with protecting their fortress from an invading army of orcs by outfitting it with various traps. What sets the series apart from other titles, however, is that it plays more like a third-person action game, allowing players to take on the invading hordes directly while building traps for their fortress.

Along with the traditional Survival mode, Unchained includes a head-to-head party mode called Sabotage. In this mode, two teams of three players compete on their own version of the same map and summon spells, enemies, and bosses on the opposing team’s map in an effort to disrupt them. The team with the most rift points at the end of the match wins.

Prior to its PC release, Unchained also featured a MOBA-like PvP mode called Siege. This mode pitted two teams of five players against each other. However, Robot ultimately decided to remove the mode as only a “small portion” of players actively played it. The team explained, “Ultimately, the Siege game mode has a small hardcore group of players, but it isn’t building a healthy long-term community around itself.” Removing the mode allowed Robot to turn its focus “entirely toward making Survival feel, look, sound, and play more like a clear evolution of OMD and OMD2.”

Orcs Must Die: Unchained will be free-to-play when it launches for PS4. Additionally, PS Plus members can snag an exclusive bundle of skins, consumables, in-game currency, and more–normally valued over $20–for free until August 17.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
