Of Orcs and Men
Plot / Synopsis
Of Orcs and Men first puts you into the role of an elite Orc soldier from the legendary legion of Bloodjaws, a league of warriors deeply involved in the war opposing the Orcs and Goblins on one side to their persecutors, Humankind. As a veteran warrior who has seen the most brutal of battles, you are appointed by the Orc commander to complete a mission that could change the course of the war: kill the one man responsible for all of this bloodshed, the one who has, for years, exhorted the human masses to loath and fight the green-skinned people: the Emperor himself.
A Goblin will soon join you to aid you in your mission… he is everything the Orc is not. But you find that this works to your advantage as you fight on the battleground and off. Making advantage of their natural traits, they have their own skill trees you will develop. While the Orc focuses on power, reflecting his incredible strength, the Goblin will benefit from darker powers and stealth abilities, making him the perfect assassin.
From the filthy alleys at the foot of the Great Wall, to the depths of the Empire of Men, your two infiltrated heroes will face the greatest dangers through their epic quest. They will commune with the Wizards, fight the assassins and soldiers of the Empire of Men, and oppose the powerful Sisters of Laments.
As the world falls into chaos and you face a cruel and merciless humanity bent on eternal persecution of Orcs and Goblins, your unlikely duo will have one last chance to change the course of History and, hopefully, bringing peace between your peoples.
Of Orcs and Men is scheduled for a Spring 2012 release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

Of Orcs and Men Trailer Review
At first glance on this Q2 video game title release of 2012 one might think "What another video game starring orcs?", but just give take time to watch it and you might start to appreciate the beauty of it. Of Orcs and Men is not the first video game that features orc-like creatures as the main protagonists, but there is somehow a nice sense of adventure in this title.
This is the first Of Orcs and Men teaser trailer and it does not tell much of the game all in all. What information it only provides as of this trailer is that Of Orcs and Men is a roleplaying game which lets you control either the big brute orc or the more stealthy goblin. This game might very well be a cooperative video game title. As for the graphics, I am not that into the 3-D, HD graphics stuff. So I think Of Orcs and Men's graphics in this trailer is alright. As long as a game provides excellent gameplay, engaging plot, and superb writing, I am already satisfied. Youtube users also compared and referenced Of Orcs and Men to a 1937 novel entitled "Of Men and Mice" by Nobel Prize-winning author John Steinbeck which tells the story of two migrant workers during the great depression. I made a follow up search for it and discover that the novel itself ended tragically but beautifully, so if ever they adapted the novel's story then they might probably have some compelling stuff in the game. If ever they did use it, I suggest for you gamers out there interested in this title to not spoil yourself by reading "Of Mice and Men" plot summary online, or if you are that curious you can get the actual book and read it.
