Fans of the game can now create and share new "traps, trinkets, and weapons." They can put together their own custom textures and Spellbook art too. Orcs Must Die! 2 released last summer.
"Have you been yearning for a crossbow that shoots freezing bolts? Now you can make one," declares Robot Entertainment. There are new costumes and onslaughts.
Given the nature of the game, vanilla fortresses can become entirely new challenges for players with all new weapons, traps and even sizes and timings of enemy waves. "Combine all of the game's traps, visual effects, and stat effects with your own custom textures and Spellbook art to custom-build your new favorite traps, trinkets, and weapons."
"Once you've put them to the test, upload your custom items to the Workshop to share with thousands of War Mages and give the Order a plethora of new ways to slaughter orcs!" they continued. The new Steam Trading Cards system is also being switched on for Orcs Must Die! 2, where the cards can be collected and then crafted into special game badges.
