Focus Home Interactive has just announced a new RPG planned for a Spring 2012 release on PC, Xbox 360 and PS. Developed by the creators of Blood Bowl, Cyanide Studio, Of Orcs and Men will offer you, as an elite Orc soldier, to save the Orcs and Goblins from the Humankind persecution. Here are the first images and the press release.
Press release :
Of Orcs and Men is a great role-playing game, jointly developed for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC by Cyanide Studios (Concept and Production) and Spiders (Realization and Development). These first images give an early preview into a brutal world at war, where the Empire of Men’s oppressive threat looms over the territories of the Orcs and the Goblins. Goblins are systematically persecuted and slaughtered, while Orcs not killed in battle are captured and enslaved.
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.
@Sdarts: soon as framerates start to struggle in games i play it takes me right out of the immersion (0 minute ago)
And cool. It's "fun." It would be more fun if it were 60fps. (0 minute ago)
@bleachedsmiles: Actually, no, I had a very old GPU at the time, so at AC:B I was playing at 20-30 fps with some pretty big framerate drops, AC:R was 15-20fps. (1 minute ago)
@Sdarts: Poor performance is to the detriment of "immersion" and other such buzzwords, too :P (1 minute ago)
@Tiz: burnout paradise is the only open world racing game i've ever enjoyed tbh. God i'd love a new PGR (2 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: The experience you have with a game trumphs everything, and that depends on semanthics. You would have a better experience with 60fps, I would have one with more immersion, different tastes (2 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: where the AC games no doubt had a more solid framerate (4 minutes ago)
