And goblins! Always overlooked

Of Orcs and Men is out October 11, and Focus Interactive has released a nifty little launch trailer to celebrate. If you were unaware of this one, it's a story about an orc and a goblin as they fight their human oppressors. The video does a great job of selling the promising story.

Looks a little rough around the edges, but I do have a soft spot for these kinds of titles, and the ideas have some serious kick to them. I definitely plan to check it out and hope it makes good on its promise. I'm always looking for some neat twists on old dynamics.

The game will arrive for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.
