In Orcs Must Die! 3, players must defend their rift using a variety of weapons and traps against hundreds of orcs.

Orcs Must Die! 3 ushers orc-slaying mayhem to a previously unimaginable scale. Solo or with a friend by your side, arm yourself with a massive arsenal of traps and weapons. Slice, burn, toss and zap hordes of repugnant orcs in this long-awaited successor to the award-winning series.

New to the series, War Scenarios pit players against the largest orc armies ever assembled. Mountable War Machines give players the essential firepower to heave, stab, carbonize, and disarticulate the abominable intruders.

Orcs Must Die! 3 originally released as a Stadia exclusive in 2020, and this version of the release includes new content, features, and improvements as well as all previously released Stadia content, including the Drastic Steps campaign.

The award-winning Orcs Must Die! series is back and better than ever with Orcs Must Die! 3, featuring all new War Scenarios and War Machines which add massive scale to battlefields that deliver on an epic orc-slaying power fantasy. Either solo or via online co-op with a friend, players must defend their rift using a variety of weapons and traps against hundreds of orcs simultaneously. Players can also test their resolve with the new and ever-evolving Scramble Mode that pits players against orcs in a series of five escalating challenges where both sides receive random modifiers after each battle. Plenty of new and returning fan favorite heroes, weapons and traps await players seeking to unleash orc-devastating mayhem.

Robot Entertainment announced the all new Cold as Eyes DLC for Orcs Must Die! 3 is launching on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4 and PC (Steam) on November 11, 2021.

Additionally, starting today, players can jump in and enjoy two scenario maps, Master’s Courtyard and Hidden Dock, that have been added to the Endless game mode. To celebrate this announcement, Orcs Must Die! 3 will be discounted 20% across all platforms for a limited time.

In the Cold as Eyes DLC, Orcs Must Die! 3 players must now battle against the all new Cyclopean race. Cyclopean Shamans use their totems to disable traps while the Cyclops Mesmerizer tracks its target with a powerful arcane eye ray.  Their race ability heals all Cyclopes near any dying Cyclops, allowing them to survive deeper into Order fortresses.

The Cold as Eyes DLC also includes three scenarios in an icy setting, a new Flamethrower weapon with a powerful secondary breath attack, the Cyclopean Gaze trinket which can turn the player and enemies to stone, and a new Molten Gold trap that coats enemies in gold and provides a chance of a special coin drop. The three new ice levels are also added to the Endless game mode.

Key Features:

  • More of Everything - Orcs Must Die! 3 is everything fans loved about the first two games and more. More orcs, more traps, more weapons, more upgrades and even better looking. It's cranked up to at least eleven.
