Orcs Must Die! Unchained beta coming later this month

Orcs Must Die! Unchained is preparing to launch its beta later this month.

3

Orcs Must Die! Unchained is making the tower defense series free-to-play later this year, but first, you can try it out in beta form. The closed beta will begin on Friday, June 27. As compared to the alpha test, the beta will introduce a new map, three more heroes, and the deck editing system. Heroes will be rotated throughout late June and early July.

You can register for the beta at the official site. If you played the alpha, you'll be grandfathered in. You could also buy your way in by purchasing a Founder's Club Pack, since that still gives you alpha access. Those run between $19.99 and $149.99.

      Oh neat. Didn't even know they were doing this. I quite enjoyed the first two games.

      So is this another MOBA? Loved the first two games but not so sure I'm interested if that's the case.

      Been playing the alpha last two days.. This game is a keeper for sure. The graphics put most to shame.. and its so addicting. Once you adjust the mouse sensitivity which is only real annoying factor at the start.. but by the time you hit level 5 you will be hooked. Its a wonderfully put together.. simple game.. so fun. Gotta try it you guys.. you wont regret it.
