Orcs Must Die! 2 Adds Steam Workshop Support + Trading Cards Incoming

Robot Entertainment today announced that Orcs Must Die! 2 now supports Steam Workshop. Not only that but it will soon be getting Steam Trading Cards too. Orcs Must Die! 2 gives players access to a Spellbook filled with tons of wacky traps, each with unlockable upgrades. Robot Entertainment is now giving War Mages extra tools to expand their magical arsenal even further and help them overcome the green tide.

Fancy a crossbow that shoots freezing bolts? It’s yours. Enjoy seeing orcs stuck in the mud? have a special tar trap then. Combine all of the game’s new and existing traps, visual effects, and stat effects with user added custom textures and Spellbook art to custom-build the ultimate traps, trinkets, and weapons. Once you’re happy with them, upload your custom items to the Workshop to share with thousands of other War Mages around the world and together you can conquer the orc menace once and for all…or until Orcs Must Die 3 anyway.

Orcs Must Die! 2 Workshop’s features include:

  • Craft New Traps, Trinkets, and Weapons – Using existing Spellbook items, War Mages can construct a dizzying array of new traps to take into battle. Combine existing 3D models with new textures, new stats, new upgrade designs, and new visual effects to craft and share your best orc-maiming ideas.
  • New Onslaughts – Modify the creatures and timing for waves in existing Orcs Must Die! 2 fortresses and caves to create new and challenging experiences. Did you already beat the game on Nightmare? Now you can create your own ultra-Nightmare Mode to put your skills to the test. Share your custom onslaught levels and campaigns with the community on Workshop.
  • New Costumes – Replace the textures on any of the sixteen War Mage and Sorceress costumes in Orcs Must Die! 2. Create a huge closet of intimidating new costumes to strike fear into the hearts of orcs!
  • Steam Trading Cards – War Mages will also soon be able to earn Steam Trading Cards for playing Orcs Must Die! 2. Collect trading cards just for playing Orcs Must Die! 2, then craft your cards into special game badges. Crafting game badges earns you cool new Steam items like emoticons, profile backgrounds, coupons and more!

So what are you waiting for? Leave all that can be spared behind. We travel light. Let’s hunt some Orc.
