Check out this Of Orcs and Men trailer featuring a pair of unlikely heroes, Arkaïl and Styx. It’s a third-person action game so you will be staring at an enormous green orc butt for most of the game – and/or tiny wizened goblin butt. This new trailer ends on a note making it clear that you are not the only one occupied with this task.
The two protagonists of Of Orcs and Men have very different skill sets, which is useful as the mission you embark on is pretty hefty – kill the Emperor, leader of the encroaching human invasion – and will probably involve equal amounts sneaky stabbing and less subtle smashing.
The game starts you in the role of an elite Orc warrior, deeply involved in the war against their persecutors, Humankind. You have been sent on a dangerous mission that could change the course of the war: kill the one responsible for all the bloodshed and mobilization of the human race to destroy the green-skinned people-the Emperor himself. Joining you in your mission is a Goblin, an assassin and master of stealth, who complements your Orc’s brute strength in battle.
Of Orcs and Men has a slightly complicated release schedule; it arrives on PC worldwide, and hits PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Europe, on October 11. In the US, it’ll appear on the PlayStation Network on October 16.
