A new trailer from Focus Home Interactive gives a bit of a rundown of the orc and goblin duo of Arkaïl and Styx. The trailer is ripe with foul language and less-than-funny one-liners, but the dynamic between two non-humans on a quest to wage war against man is interesting nonetheless.
Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide Studios action-hack-and-slash game takes a different approach to the typical orc versus human tale and flips it on its head by putting players in the role of the orcs. I suppose this is one of the few times where taking on hordes of mobs and actually being able to barrel through them all like an invincible makes sense given the size and brute strength of the orc warrior Arkail.
Of course, for those of you who like utilizing stealth and the environment to your advantage, there's always Styx and his abilities to camo with the environment and backstab opponents. Check it out below.
If the game has your fancy held hostage, tickled on the toes and begging for more, then you don't have to wait long because Of Orcs and Men is set for release on October 16th for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in North America.
You can pre-order now or learn more about the game by paying a visit to the game's Official Website. Some gamers are leery because Cyanide Studios doesn't have a good track record and many believe the game could be crap. I'm holding out for a decent “Let's Play” session before making any judgments. If you value your money you might hold out and see how the game plays before laying down any money.
