- Orcs Must Die 3 has been revealed with a new trailer.
- The game will be a timed exclusive for Google Stadia.
- In the trailer, there's a focus on much, much larger battles with hundreds of Orcs.
- There's no release date or even a release window at the moment.
Updated August 19, 2019: During the Stadia Connect livestream, the company said that Orcs Must Die 3 is a complete exclusive. The developer just reached out to confirm that it's just a timed exclusive.
Orcs Must Die 3 has been announced and it's coming as a timed exclusive to Google Stadia. You can check out the announcement trailer in the video below. It looks pretty fun!
Developed by Robot Entertainment, the developers talked in the Stadia Direct livestream about how Google approached them and they immediately took to the idea. Using the power of Stadia's servers, they've vastly increased the focus and scope of the game. Instead of having a couple of dozen Orcs coming in from different directions, there can be up to 500 Orcs in a single wave.
There are no tricks or dividing that number up. As the heroes, you'll need every trick up your sleeve and game-changing trap on the field as possible, as these battles are meant to make the player feel terrified. For more information, you can watch the developer diary below, where they explain the reasoning behind making the game a Stadia timed exclusive.
There's not any release date at the moment, but we'll be sure to let you know when that changes. In the meanwhile, if you'd like to learn more about Stadia and what games will be available at launch, you can check out our list right here.
