London, England – September 25, 2012 – Robot Entertainment today announced “Family Ties,” the second booster pack for Orcs Must Die! 2. There’s an old saying beyond the rifts that says, “Behind every bumbling male orc army, there’s a huge, enraged female orc wielding a giant mace.” You’ve already repelled tens of thousands of orcs, and now the old Ball and Chain is stepping in to take over where the thousands have failed so miserably. The new booster pack features three brand new levels and three new Endless Mode conversions that can be played in single-player or with a friend in co-op. Players will also unlock new weapons and trinkets to strike fear into the hearts of their new enemies!
Robot Entertainment will be joining two of their most prolific Orcs Must Die! 2 live-stream players for a special stream of the new booster pack content today, September 25 th, at 6pm BST. Join the live stream to get your first glimpse at the new content and ask questions about the game tomorrow: http://www.twitch.tv/fryedegg
