Robot Entertainment has confirmed that it’s going to release the first DLC pack for its Orcs Must Die 2 action strategy game later this week, in the form of the Fire & Water add-on, which brings new levels, as well as new enemies and traps.
Orcs Must Die 2 came out at the end of July and delivered an impressive experience that combined tower defense gameplay with third-person action across a variety of modes, including a campaign that can be played alone or cooperatively with a buddy, as well as Endless or Classic levels.
Throw in the weekly challenges
issued by Robot Entertainment and Orcs Must Die 2 is quite an impressive experience.
Now, in order to add even more content to the game, the studio has confirmed the first DLC pack, in the form of the Fire & Water add-on.
The DLC brings two brand new enemies, in the form of Fire and Water elemental-type opponents, each with different variations and powers.
“Hellish new Fire Lords and Fire Elementals crumble when killed, leaving behind dangerous Firelings that will hunt the player down and explode when they get too close! Slippery Water Lords and Water Elementals dwindle into pools of water when killed, but don’t count them out of the fight! When Waterlings find dormant puddles, they’ll absorb the stagnant water and grow into new Water Elementals,” the studio said.
In order to handle the new enemies, the DLC brings three new traps, in the form of a Web Spinner, Ceiling Darts, and Floor Portal. The Web Spinner is a new wall trap that ensnares hallways full of passing monsters in a sticky tangle of webs, slowing them down to buy precious time.
Ceiling Darts turn your fortress into a temple of doom for orcs, dropping from the ceiling to fire deadly darts in every direction.
If the orcs make it past your defenses the first time around, you can give them another dose of pain with the new Floor Portal. Place the floor portal anywhere on the ground. Unsuspecting enemies who step on it will be magically teleported back to the beginning of the level!
