Orcs Must Die! Unchained beta unleashes Endless PvE mode

PvP action is fine and all, but Orcs Must Die built its reputation on PvE gameplay, something that the latest update is throwing in with the new Endless mode.


While Orcs Must Die! Unchained is introducing some intriguing PvP elements to Robot Entertainment's orc-slaying series, some have lamented a seeming lack of its more classic game modes. Fortunately, the closed beta is about to get its first dose of PvE, introducing four-player action to a more old-school Orcs Must Die experience.

Endless Mode is designed for up to four players (Correction: five players), in which they'll have a limited time to set up their traps. Once the game begins, filling large numbers of enemies in conjunction with traps will fill the Unchained Meter, which can then be used to increase damage, reduce cooldowns, and bump mana and health. After the first few waves, War Camps will introduce multiple lanes of enemies, so teams will have to work together to prevent 25 Rift Points' worth of monsters crossing into the Rift. This includes boss characters, which will occasionally spawn in.

There are some kinks that Robot is seeking to work out for this new game mode. The biggest one being that there is currently no party support. This latest update does introduce some other big-time fixes, which can be found in detail on the Orcs Must Die forums.

There are three videos to check out this time around, so for more information, give them a look below. Orcs Must Die! Unchained is coming out of beta soon and will be free-to-play on PC and PS4.

Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
