Action-Tower Defence favourite, Orcs Must Die! has now received two DLC packs for the PC version of the game. But what about us XBLA fans? Well Robot Entertainment assure us it is coming. @SixOkay, Community Manager for Robot Entertainment recently posted the following comment on the Orcs Must Die forums:
Just wanted to post this in one place –
We WILL be releasing DLC for Xbox players, we just aren't quite ready to announce details yet. But if you use your imagination, I bet you can guess a lot of the details already. ;)
We’ll assume that means the DLC will be the same as the PC version…and given the delay we’d also take a guess that they are coming as one big DLC pack for Xbox. Check out the full details on the two packs already available for the PC after the jump.
It’s been almost a month to the day since Orcs Must Die! hit XBLA receiving rave reviews all round and fans of the game will be interested to hear that Art Director at Robot Entertainment, David Kubalak, recently posted an insider’s view of the visual development processes used. In the post he reveals how they set out on a challenge to create a budget arcade style game without holding back on production values.
New York Comic Con has come and gone and we got our hands on a new release and some upcoming games, including a newly announced title. Three Xbox Live Arcade games were on display at the Microsoft booth. There was the recent Robot Entertainment release Orcs Must Die, a welcomed multiplayer demo of Trials Evolution and the newly announced Fusion: Genesis, the first game coming from Starfire Studios. Though our time at the event was limited, we also did get to see the guys from Demiurge Studios and play some more Shoot Many Robots.
