Orcs Must Die! Unchained is the latest entry in Robot Entertainment’s well-regarded Orcs Must Die! franchise, and you could be forgiven for taking one look at the game’s announcement earlier this month and characterizing it as a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) title. It’s a free-to-play game that pits two teams of five against each other, with each unit attempting to erect defenses for its own stronghold while leading bands of minions into their opponents’ home base — a similar experience to popular MOBAs such as Riot Games’ League of Legends and Valve’s Dota 2.
But there’s more to Orcs Must Die! Unchained, and during a recent hands-on session, Robot Entertainment officials told Polygon that they believe their game blends a variety of genres into something uniquely Orcs Must Die! — that’s why they’re not leading with the MOBA label.
