Hello everybody! We have exciting news to share! The Orcs Must Die Unchained Wu Xing Battles update will be launching on October 24 for PS4 and October 25 for PC! This massive update contains three new maps, a brand new faction of enemy invaders, the powerful new hero Yi-Lin, and much more.

New Hero

New Maps

Hordes of never-before-seen enemies are invading the White Tiger Empire on three brand new maps and it’s up to us War Mages to defeat them. Defend the White Tiger Empire’s beautiful Water Gardens in Survival mode and hold the Castle Gates in Survival and Endless! Both locations offer strategic challenges with open layouts and not much room for wall traps. The Midnight Market is a popular nighttime location and is under heavy attack in both Survival and Sabotage game modes!

New Enemies

The new Wu Xing invaders are on the march and they bring fresh skills and tactics into the mix! Being masters of the five elements, even the common Wu Xing soldiers and archers have magic armor. Their massive Terracotta Giants do not attack players directly, but slow any nearby players and march faithfully to the rift on their mission of destruction. The “Red” Pandas are real tricksters, casting powerful speed boosts on their allies, and the Elemental Mages throw bouncing orbs of elemental energy. Last but definitely not least, the Water Dragon hunts players, but unlike other enemies of this type it casts an area-of-effect splash attack.

Tune In!

You can get your first look at the upcoming content on the Designing Yi-Lin Insider Access stream this Thursday at 3 pm Central on, followed by a reveal stream every Thursday until the update.

  • Oh, very nice...
    Very nice indeed... 
  • I wonder if the doubling down on the entire faction will satiate the players who were under the impression that Yi Lin's skin didn't fit in with the game aesthetics.  This update looks more substantial that expected.  I look forward to seeing how all the new enemies play out.

    What happened?
    First time in history of OMDU we got information 2 weeks before release and no 2 days before release as usual?
    Finally big update since release full version of OMDU. Previous patches had minor adds which seemed beta rather than the full game :)

    Keep going on. Good work!

    First and only CZ&SK funsite of OMD series

  • Interesting that the maps have limited wall spaces, and that the minions have magic armour. If we ignore the wall traps and elemental traps we have the following

    Ceiling: Swinging mace, Ceiling Ballista, Haymaker, Pounder, Concussive Pounder, Quarter Pounder

    Floor traps: Floor spikes, Flip trap, Boom Barrels, Viscous tar, Tar, Steam Vent

    There better be some nice ceilings. 
  • why dose the new hero come out for ps4 first? it makes no sense... the hero is created on a pc so it should be released on pc first...

    Ah ah ah! Wait, you're serious?
    Also, it comes out on PC 1 day later. At this point, it's basically out at the same time.
  • When will the update drop? XD i think its moved to the end of the month...
  • 31st for PS4. 1st for PC.
