Developer Robot Entertainment has announced a brand new game mode for Orcs Must Die! 2 titled “Endless Mode”. Endless Mode, will function similarly to game modes like Gears of War 3’s Horde Mode. Each player (or just one player) will receive an allowance at the start of each Endless level.
Players must use their allowance to set up clever trap/attack opportunities in order to survive each wave. After five waves, a golden-armored ogre by the name of Mr. Moneybags will charge through the level. The player that ends up killing Mr. Moneybags will receive a “handsome” bonus allowance to spend on more traps: increasing that player’s chance of succeeding and opening up more gameplay opportunities.
Endless Mode will be playable across five campaign levels along with five original levels designed purely for this style of gameplay. Endless Mode will feature all of the same upgrades/unlocks available in the game’s campaign levels. This provides players with a chance to choose which avenue to earn the more than fifty traps, weapons, spells, and guardians available in the game.
Orcs Must Die! 2 will be available on Steam July 30th, 2012.
