Orcs Must Die Unchained patch 1.4 adds a new hero, vanity skins, and cards

Posted on August 27, 2014 AT 05:25am

Orcs Must Die Unchained‘s beta is set to receive a new update today that will add a new hero, 20 new cards, new vanity skins, and more.

The new hero is a polar bear called Tundra. “Tundra has both a ranged and melee attack, can disable large numbers of enemy traps, can ignore crowd control on occasion, and is capable of making allied grizzlies even scarier than they were before,” the developer explains.

There are also four new vanity skins for players to use: Bear Slayer Bloodspike Skin, Adventurer Master Skin, Helter Swelter Smolder Skin, and War Chief Tundra Skin. As well as this, a new expansion pack of 20 trap cards will be added, including Water Sprayer, Anti-Magic Field, Barbed Floor Spikes, Ring of Storms, and more.

a new system has also been introduced to the game, called Captains, that will allow a team that is far behind a chance to catch up. Basically, any time a war camp is advanced to level 3 or level 4, the next wave out of that camp will include a captain minion at the very end of the wave. The Captain is a strong minion that is worth nothing to the team that spawns him except two rift points instead of one. However, if the opposition kills him their team will evenly split 5000 coin and 5000 leadership for a level 3 Captain and 10,000 coin and 10,000 leadership for a level 4 Captain.

Finally, patch 1.4 adds Twitch integration to the game. You can check out the full patch notes here.
