Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide Studios released new footage of the upcoming, story-driven medieval-fantasy game, Of Orcs and Men, for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. The game looks drop-dead gorgeous and features a very dark and gritty take on the conflict between orcs and men.

One thing that really stands out is the graphical detail for the two lead characters, looking as if their faces alone have multiple stories to tell. The game basically sees players trying to turn the tide between the thinning orc race and their persecution under the law of man. The trailer doesn't contain a lot of story elements but the action is plentiful.

I've been trying to keep an eye on this game as it progresses in development given that it's a very original take on an age-old rivalry and houses some interesting concepts for the action-oriented RPG genre. That's not to mention that it's not often we get to play the role of a hero for a different race this time around, which could prove to be very intriguing if handled well by the writers.

You can look for Of Orcs and Men to land on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC sometime throughout 2012. For further information on the game be sure to visit the Official Website.
