Gawk at some shiny new screens for Of Orcs and Men

Cyanide Studio and Spiders have put a lot of work into their new engine for Of Orcs and Men, and after taking a look at these new screenshots, you can tell all that hard work is paying off.

Of Orcs and Men places you in the role of a veteran Orc warrior on a mission that will end this ongoing feud with Empire of Men. Along the journey, you will also take control of a Goblin to help you complete objectives that require a little more stealth and cunning, as opposed to a giant battle axe to the face of your enemy.

So far, the game looks like it's coming together nicely; I especially enjoy all the detail and character they gave to the veteran warrior and his Goblin companion. What I would really like to see is some more of the world that Cyanide and Spiders have created. Of Orcs and Men will be releasing the hordes sometime later this year.

Of Orcs and Men is role reversal at its finest
