The Orcs Must Die! series has grown something of a cult following over the years, so it was a baffling decision when the third game launched as a Stadia exclusive. But now, it’s finally making the leap to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on July 23.

Orcs Must Die! 3 continues the franchise with some neat new changes. One of the biggest is War Scenarios - a new mode which throws overwhelming forces at the player, as you must thin out their numbers and survive. Obviously the tower defence gameplay from past entries returns, this time with new traps to deploy against brand new enemy types.

Orcs Must Die! 3 ushers orc-slaying mayhem to a previously unimaginable scale. All new War Scenarios pit players and their friends against the largest orc armies ever assembled. Mountable War Machines give players the essential firepower to heave, stab, carbonize, and disarticulate the abominable intruders. Orcs Must Die! 3 is the long-awaited successor in the award-winning Orcs Must Die! series.

If you haven’t checked out the series, it’s a ton of fun and a great game to check out in co-op. Building your base, fighting of waves of enemies, and pushing through tougher challenges is a satisfying loop. If you’re looking for a bit of summer fun, you can’t go wrong with some orc smashing mayhem.
