PARIS – May 25, 2012 – Of Orcs and Men, the epic role-playing game jointly developed by Spiders (Development) and Cyanide Studio (Concept and Production) for PlayStation 3®, Xbox 360® and PC, today unveiled a new series of screenshots, which reveal some of the new lands to be explored in this epic adventure. The game will invade E3 this June at Focus Home Interactive’s booth!
The game starts you in the role of an elite Orc warrior, deeply involved in the war against their persecutors, Humankind. You have been sent on a dangerous mission that could change the course of the war: kill the one responsible for all the bloodshed and mobilization of the human race to destroy the green-skinned people–the Emperor himself. Joining you in your mission is a Goblin, an assassin and master of stealth, who complements your Orc’s brute strength in battle.
From the Wall separating the Empire of Men from the Orc territories, to the Isle of Laments, Of Orcs and Men’s fantasy universe comes to life thanks to the powerful graphics engine developed by Spiders. The 5 screenshots revealed today are a testimony of the care brought by Spiders and Cyanide to realize a quality role-playing game endowed with a strong identity, an exceptional ambiance, and unique graphics rendering.
Of Orcs and Men will be presented at E3 at Focus Home Interactive’s booth #5436 in the West Hall. To book a hands-on demo and a chance to meet the development team, please contact Stephanie Palermo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Take arms, and lead the green-skinned rebellion in September 2012!
