Of Orcs and Men is role reversal at its finest


11:00 PM on 12.06.2011



Of Orcs and Men is a curious title with a pretty epic trailer. It appears to be a take on Of Mice and Men, as it's about two guys on the run.  Those two guys happen to be an orc and a goblin, however.  They also happen to kick a lot of human ass. Check this out, though. They're the heroes of the story, fighting for the freedom of their respective races. It's a neat twist.

The trailer is thoroughly action packed, with lots of medival weaponry and asskicking. Maurice previewed this game with high hopes, and the trailer shows quite a bit of promise.  Of Orcs and Men is slated to release some time in 2012 on the PS3, 360 and PC.
