Robot Entertainment has announced that its upcoming action-strategy game Orcs Must Die! will be hitting Xbox Live Arcade on October 5. Players take control of a War Mage who is tasked with defending twenty four fortresses from an onslaught of orcs who are ready to pillage everything in their path. Players will have a variety of weapons and spells at their disposal as well as 17 different traps that will result in plenty of glorified orc death.
