Robot Entertainment’s Orcs Must Die! 3 is coming to PS4 and PS5 this month with some nice extras. The developer has recently revealed a new game mode and a deadly new trap.
Orcs Must Die! 3 will be releasing on PS4 and PS5 on July 23rd, 2021 after having spent a year as an exclusive to Google’s Stadia streaming service. It’s a cracking game and definitely one to look out for when it hits consoles.
The arrival of Orcs Must Die! 3 on traditional consoles (also releasing on Xbox and PC) will also bring some new features to the tower defence game.
Robot Entertainment has revealed that Orcs Must Die! 3 will launch with a brand new game mode called Scramble. But what is the Scramble game mode?
In Scamble you’ll fight waves of increasingly difficult enemies and at the end of each wave, you’ll have to make a choice that will decide what buffs and debuffs get stacked on your current run, throwing the normal order of the game into chaos as you’ll be forced to work with different weapons and traps rather than your favoured loadout. The idea is that this mode will add more playability and encourage experimentation. It’s also easy for the developer to expand.
Another new addition is the Acid Geyser trap, which joins the other floor-based traps, like the Tar, Brimstone, and Floor Spikes.
The Acid Geyser trap has a bigger area of effect, while still taking just one trap space. Enemies who get hit by the acid are hit with a “melt” effect that, according to the developers, is great for chaining together combos.
Orcs Must Die! 3 was originally released back in 2020 as a timed exclusive for Google Stadia. I actually put together a review for the game on our all-platform YouTube channel, Pure Play TV. That was back when we were still really new to video reviews, so I’m hoping to do a better job the next time around with Orcs Must Die! 3 on PS5/PS4.
