Payment Model



What payment model does Orcs Must Die! 3 have?

  • The game is running on a one-time-purchase payment model. You will purchase the game, and optionally expansions. Once purchased, all content related to the purchase is available.

Are there any special editions of the game?

  • There are no special editions of Orcs Must Die! 3 at this time.

Is there anything I am able to buy in-game (with real money)?

  • Orcs Must Die! 3 has no content in-game which requires a real money purchase. In the future we may release paid Downloadable Content (DLC), which would require a purchase to be able to play the extra content.

Will there be any Downloadable Content (DLC) to Orcs Must Die! 3?

  • Yes, there will be both paid and free expansions in the future. Our first expansion (Drastic Steps) will be free with the release of the game!

Legacy Content



Has any content returned from previous titles? Will any (more) in the future?

  • Orcs Must Die! 3 has characters, lore, traps, minions, and weapons from previous titles - however no maps from previous titles at this time (though perhaps some that look eerily similar). We do enjoy the classic content from the Orcs Must Die! series as much as you do, so some classic content may make a return.

Gameplay



Is there a Cooperative mode? How many players can play together?

  • There is two player cooperative. We currently have no plans to extend this past two players.

Is there a PvP Mode (Can we have Siege back)? Will I get to play offense at all? Is there one planned for the future?

  • No, there is not a PvP mode in Orcs Must Die! 3. This also means there will be no playing offense. There are simply too many orcs invading - Warmages are all busy maintaining the defense of the rifts. We have no plans to implement one in the future at this time.

Is Endless in Orcs Must Die! 3? How does it work?

  • Endless mode is back! It will feature many of the maps played in the campaign. It is not needed to progress in the story, and the maps are unlocked in Endless as you complete them in the campaign. As waves progress in Endless, the coin you earn for getting kills becomes less and less, while the enemies you encounter become harder and more terrifying by dealing more damage and gaining increased health and movement speed.

What should I expect regarding new game modes?

  • Orcs Must Die! 3 currently features Weekly Challenges, Endless Mode, and will have a new Scramble mode on July 23rd! We’re always thinking about new game mode types as well, so there may be more in the future.

Will War Scenarios be mandatory?

  • Yes, War Scenarios play a pivotal role in the campaign. With that said, the campaign is available on all difficulties, so if a War Scenario proves to be too challenging you can always complete it on an easier difficulty.

Will there be any limited time events as the game goes on?

  • None are planned at this time, but we may consider them in the future.

Characters



How many characters can we play as?

  • The game begins with 2 characters, and unlocks 4 additional characters over time.

Are the characters customizable? Are there skins available for the characters?

  • No, characters are not customizable. There are skins available for the characters, and we plan to continue supporting the game with skins and other vanity items.

Is there a character progression system?

  • No, there is not a character progression system within Orcs Must Die! 3.

Do guardians still exist? How do they work?

  • Yes, there are guardians in Orcs Must Die! 3. Guardians work similarly to Orcs Must Die! 2, where they are a trap that can be placed on the battlefield. Currently there are Guardian Archers for regular scenarios, and Bank of Archers, Priestess, and Knight for War Scenarios.

Does the game have bosses? Do we see specific minions with special abilities?

  • War Scenarios do have stronger minions with special abilities included to make the war scenarios even harder.

What minions are in the game? What about my favorites - Flyers? Goblin Tinkerers? Swiftyhooves?! Bears!?!

  • Orcs Must Die! 3 has many enemies in it, including Orcs, Ogres, Kobolds, Gnolls, Cyclops Mages, Fire and Earth Elementals, and Fire Fiends. The ‘Drastic Steps’ expansion has introduced flyers, and there is really no saying where the future development may take us.

What about minion factions? Are any Orcs from pirate ships or the cold north returning?

  • We love Orc factions as much as our fans, so this depends where future development leads us.

Traps and Lore



Does the game have new traps? Will it have more in the future?

  • Yes! The game has 23 traps returning from previous titles and another 19 that are entirely unique to Orcs Must Die! 3. We are sure to keep upping this number with future updates.

Is there a trap limit / trap cap?

  • There is no trap limit in the game currently. However, this does not mean we may not use one in certain areas of the game at a later time.

Is Orcs Must Die! Unchained considered canon? Also, where does the story pick up?

  • No, that story is not canon. Orcs Must Die! 3 is set some time after the ending of Orcs Must Die! 2.
