Robot Entertainment, the studio behind the upcoming Age of Empires Online, has announced that it's bringing Orcs Must Die! to "personal computers and consoles this summer." The game is billed as "a white-knuckle blend of action and strategy" and tasks players with defending their fortress from an Orc onslaught.
In addition to fighting the Orcs personally, players can also set traps throughout the fortress to crush, impale, immolate or otherwise kill the invading horde. Orcs Must Die! is planned as a download-only title for PC and consoles, making PSN and XBLA likely candidates for console distribution. Check out the first screens in the gallery below and find the debut trailer after the break.
