New RPG: Of Orcs and Men (Screens)
Tolkien may have given us orcs, but wargamers in the ’80s painted them the healthy green we’ve come to know and love/loathe. Of Orcs and Men is an upcoming RPG that spotlights the green critters and their smaller goblin buddies.
In a world where Orcs and Goblins are persecuted, slaughtered, or enslaved by humans, players take on the role of an elite Orc soldier tasked with killing the human Emperor, the one man responsible for exhorting the humans to loath and fight your kin.
You soon team up with a Goblin who complements your brute force approach with sly cunning and stealth, and together, you vie to bring peace to your peoples.
Now that is one ugly SOB. But maybe I’m just another loathsome human.
Of Orcs and Men is scheduled for a Spring 2012 release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
