A title announced at E3 has recently gotten me very excited. Cyanide Studios, the makers of Blood Bowl, are developing an RPG titled “Of Orcs and Men”. It’s being published by Focus Home Interactive and also co-developed by Spiders.
In Of Orcs and Men you take the role of member of the Bloodjaws Legion. Your commander has given you the sacred mission of taking down the Emperor of your human persecutors. I have long time been a fan of the Orc race in fantasy games and it is reassuring to see them shown in a different light. Perhaps now we will see that they are noble warriors instead of monstrous beasts.
Of Orcs And Men is currently scheduled for a Spring 2012 release on Xbox 360, PS3, & PC.
