Robot Entertainment, the studio formed by many ex-Ensemble employees, have announced their new game. Orcs Must Die!, billed a ‘fantasy action-strategy game’, is not quite what one might expect from the people behind Age of Empires. Players must defend their castle against hordes of Orcs, using magic, traps and parts of the enviroment.
No solid release date has been announced but we can expect to see the game some time in the summer. Those attending PAX East will be able to get their hands on the game as Robot will be there to show off a playable demo. Check back on XBLAFans tomorrow as we will have hands on impressions and more. In the mean time check out the debut trailer and screenshots after the jump.
In this first episode XBLAFans EIC John Laster is joined by Tyler Cameron and Andrew Crews to talk about the latest XBLA news and the House Party promotion on Xbox Live. With a few sidesteps into Marvel vs Capcom 3 and the age old topic of achievements.

Good news to any Behemoth fans who plan on attending some upcoming trade shows. The Behemoth has revealed plans to show off more of their next game, BattleBlock Theater. According to a blog post over on The Behemoth’s site the dev has refrained from showing the Story mode until now because they weren’t sure it would fit with a trade show environment.
They have decided to finally pull back the curtain however, excited to show everyone the collaborative gameplay. We have listed the handful of places The Behemoth will be showing off the mode below and hit the jump for some (small) screenshots of the game cinematics.
