Orcs Must Die! returns in a delightfully grotesque fashion with a twist on 3rd person action meets tower defense in Orcs Must Die! 3. 

Orcs Must Die! 3 is the latest installment in the award-winning tower defense series played by over eight million players. And like its predecessors, it certainly promises a smashing (or stabbing, or slashing) good time. Available now, you can pick this chaotic game up on Steam, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 via backwards compatibility. 

Go it alone or team up with a friend to defend your entrance of the Rift from the invading orcs. For a little bit of spice, the orcs will be joined by hordes of ogres, kobolds, trolls, and more with all sorts of wild and preposterous weapons and traps to fend them off.

This iteration of the series includes everything players love and then some. Building off of its classic action gameplay, Orcs Must Die! 3 includes new modes and ways to play. Orcs Must Die! 3 also includes new challenges. In War Scenarios, the size of orc armies has been upgraded exponentially, pitting you against hundreds of orcs at a time.

War Guardians and War Machines are new allies and tools to take into the fray. As battles dredge on, you’ll have to continuously build bigger, better, and more explosive traps and weapons—such as the all-new Automated Snow Gun Trap or the Acid Geyser trap—to protect the Rift.

Scramble mode sprinkles in even more slicing and dicing chaos as a rouge-like-equse experience. After each level, both your hero and the orcs will receive modifiers. Players can choose the modifiers and these stack to make each subsequent wave more and more absurd—and the battle won’t stop until you’ve lost or achieved sweet, sweet victory.
