Of Orcs and Men
This trailer unveils further details of the story, universe, and battles of Of Orcs and Men. Persecuted and slaughtered by the Empire of men for decades, the Orcs send their best warriors, the elite unit of the Bloodjaws, on a perilous mission deep into human territory. While this journey is certainly the most dangerous they will ever undertake, the Bloodjaw Arkaïl and his companion Styx will be able to count on precious yet unexpected help along the way. Discover today's video now and get one last preview of Arkaïl and Styx's quest, before the game releases this week!
Just like the popular "Buddy Film" movie genre, which cast a pair of unlikely heroes who must band together, there are bound to be communication problems and hilarious moments. This is one of the original aspects of Of Orcs and Men. Indeed, the powerful and proud Orc warrior Arkaïl and the sly Goblin Styx don't have much in common, and when they butt heads it allows for some comic relief in an otherwise dark and violent adventure.
Of Orcs and Men benefits from music composed by Olivier Deriviere (Alone in the Dark, Obscure) and performed by the talented Boston Cello Quartet, a quartet of cellists from the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
It unveils some of the many places you\'ll explore on your quest while playing as Arkaïl, a fearsome Orc warrior from the legendary legion of Bloodjaws, and Styx, a Goblin master of the assassin arts. Sent on a suicide mission at the heart of the Empire of Men, these two atypical heroes who don\'t otherwise get along will have to unite their efforts and skill to make their perilous mission a success: to assassinate the Emperor of Men himself.
Thrown into a suicide mission aimed at putting an end to the decades-long war, our two heroes face opponents who are as merciless as they are numerous and meet potential allies who might be less than trustworthy. See the action, and more of the varied, detailed characters and environments, in the official E3 trailer of Of Orcs and Men!
This video is the opportunity to discover more of this roleplaying game endowed with a strong identity and unique ambiance, and its two heroes: a powerful Orc, and a Goblin, that all opposes except for their skin color, which earned them to be hunted down by the soldiers of the Empire of Men.
