Robot Entertainment has announced Orcs Must Die, the first original game from the folks who brought you Age of Empires and Halo Wars.

Orcs Must Die is a fantasy action-strategy game which challenges players to defend fortresses under siege.

Loads of traps and weapons will be at your disposal, and it also allows to “hack, launch, flatten, gibletize, and incinerate an endless army of filthy orcs and their vile allies.”

“Don’t negotiate with them. Don’t just maim them. You must kill the orcs,” insisted Patrick Hudson, CEO of Robot Entertainment. “Robot exists to make great games that our fans love. Orcs Must Die! is our first original title, and we’re counting on players to do what must be done: drive the orcs into oblivion!”

Orcs Must Die will be available exclusively as a digital download on PC and consoles this summer.
