Robot Entertainment shows Orcs Must Die!

Former Age of Empires, Halo Wars dev.

Robot Entertainment - the studio risen from the ashes of Halo Wars and Age of Empires developer Ensemble - has revealed its new game: Orcs Must Die!

It's a downloadable title for "PC and consoles" and is due for release sometime this year.

Orcs Must Die! challenges you to defend a castle from an army of orcs and ogres. They smash through the gates and it's your job, as a war mage, to smash them up.

It's a vividly coloured cartoon-style game shown from a third-person perspective and boasts a fast-paced mix of action and strategy. You can chop with a sword; loose bolt after bolt from your crossbow; lay traps; employ the help of elven archers and devastate with terrific spells.

The idea being to kill loads of baddies at once, and there's a combo system to reward this.

There's no word on multiplayer.

Use your knife on orc.
