Today, Robot Entertainment announced plans to release a “booster pack” for Orcs Must Die 2!, entitled Are We There Yeti?.
New rifts have opened up in the caverns to the north, and players must travel to defend them from invasion. Of course, as both titles imply, players can expect both Orc and Yeti interference throughout these cave levels. The yetis are enormous brutes that hurl frozen snowballs at players. Near death, yetis enrage and charge over barriers to get to players.
Are We There Yeti? also includes three new Endless Mode levels: Passages, Chilled Cavern, and the fan-favorite Tower level have all been converted for Endless Mode; three new spell-book defenses, the Deadly High-Five, the Dwarven Missile Launcher, and the Guardian Trinket; and new character costumes inspired directly by the Orcs Must Die! 2 community.
Orcs Must Die! 2 is the sequel to 2011′s Orcs Must Die!. The game is a third-person tower-defense shooter, where player take on the role of a Battle Mage, attempting to keep incoming orcs from getting into our world, through rifts which have appeared across various locations. The Battle Mages have a number of traps to utilize against the oncoming waves of orcs and their monster allies, but only strategic placement of the traps, ensures victory.
Players anxious to take battle to the Yeti Den need not wait long, Are We There Yeti? will be available on November 1st, on Steam, for $4.99, in the meantime visit the official Orcs Must Die! 2 website to join in with the community.
