Free-to-play action tower defense game Orcs Must Die! Unchained is releasing on July 18 for PlayStation 4, Robot Entertainment announced today. If you’re a PlayStation Plus member, there will be a free bundle (valued at over $20) available until August 17 that includes in-game currency, skins, consumables, and more.

Released earlier this year for PC, Orcs Must Die! Unchained for PS4 will have new content, new game modes, and regular updates.

Here’s what Robot Entertainment’s Laura Barrett had to say:

For those who are unfamiliar with Orcs Must Die Unchained, it takes the award-winning Orcs Must Die action tower defense gameplay to a whole new level with three-player team-based gameplay. Slay the invading hordes to protect your Rift, but don’t get cocky because the stakes are higher, the traps are bloodier, and the invaders are even more ravenous. You’ll need to bring your A-game and a couple of the biggest orc-haters you can find to fight off these hordes!

[…] Survival mode lets players slay their way to the top of the orc pile in 3-player co-op defense gameplay. Sabotage mode puts two teams of three head-to-head; troll the opposing team with powerful spells designed to weaken their defenses and summon enemies to overrun them — but be on guard as they’ll be doing the same. Weekly Challenges give players the chance to conquer challenging, inventive scenarios. Endless mode will keep the orcs, ogres, and other uglies comin’ until you break.

Orcs Must Die! Unchained will include a Platinum Trophy.

Asked about split-screen co-op, Barrett said, “OMDU won’t have split screen co-op. Players can create parties with their friends or use the matchmaker to create groups to tackle content together.”
