Orcs Must Die! 2 is launching on PC on July 30, 2012, developer Robot Entertainment announced today.

The sequel to last year's trap-laying tower defense title begins a few days after the end of the original game, with the War Mage going up against oodles of orcs yet again. Orcs Must Die! 2 adds two-player co-op to the formula, bringing the Sorceress and her arcane magic into the mix. The entire campaign is playable solo or cooperatively, and it offers all kinds of new traps to take out never-before-seen enemies. Robot has also revamped the upgrade system, allowing players to earn skulls every time they replay levels, which means there's no longer a limit to the amount of unlockable skulls.

The first Orcs Must Die! came out on Xbox Live Arcade and PC last October, but Robot has only announced a PC version of the sequel so far. Those who own the original game on PC will have access to exclusive content in Orcs Must Die! 2, although it remains unclear what exactly the content will be.
