The president of Robot Entertainment, Patrick Hudson, has penned a brief note thanking players for their dedication to Orcs Must Die! Unchained during its closed beta and providing a kind of pre-announcement for the game’s open beta.

Hudson announces that OMDU will go live in the first half of 2016, but that there’s still quite a bit to be done before now and then. Specifically, he calls for improvements to PvP, new heroes, “ambitious plans” for PvE, and a trip to Poland. Oh wait, no. Polish. The game needs more polish. Further details, as well as the exact start of the open beta, will be announced at a later date.

Are you in the Orcs Must Die! Unchained closed beta? How’s it going for you?

    I have cb access but I’d prefer to play OMD and OMD 2 rather than OMD: Unchained. It just doesn’t feel that good.

      Same. They focused too hard on trying to push it into being a MOBA. They forgot what made the game fun in the first place, the physics and the unique traps, and they could have really built on that to create something special. Instead they went chasing gold, rather than pushing what they had to a shimmer.

      Even Dungeon Defenders did this. Tried to be a MOBA, failed at it massively, got set back several years by this, but their true game is starting to come out, and it’s shaping up very nicely. I still miss the humor, and physics, that OMD had, which really set it apart from the crowd. Maybe one day they’ll fix it…

        Sounds like the same pit Super Monday Night Combat fell in.
