Of Orcs And Men: It's Time To Finally Play As The Bad Guys

If you're looking for a fantasy action/RPG fix, you should definitely log on to the PlayStation Store next week.

That's when Of Orcs and Men will be there, which ought to be mucho entertaining for fans of the sub-genre. There's definitely an added twist or two, as well...

For instance, the "Greenskins" (orcs and goblins) have been defeated by men but the human emperor isn't happy with the victory; in order to avoid any future confrontation, he has ordered the death of any Greenskin still living. And so, you're off on a last-ditch quest - essentially a suicide mission - to assassinate the emperor. Arkail, the huge orc, and Styx, the stealthy goblin, have very little chance of accomplishing their goal.

The two characters will have tandem attacks to use in combat, and the developers have enhanced the RPG aspect of the game, as each fighter will have "different abilities, characteristics and inventory." It's also interesting to note that the team faced an uphill battle getting this project to come to light, as they were told that gamers only want to play as the good guys. But is that really true...? We hope not. Check it out:

That actually looks pretty cool. We don't always have to be the good guys, but I can't say I've ever wanted to be an orc.

I love being the bad guy and it definitely looks like it has potential and is right up my alley. Hope it gets some good reviews, but from what I've seen I'm guessing it will be mediocre with some highs and lows.

This looks like it has a lot of promise. Sometimes, who the bad guy is can be a matter of one's perspective.

Damn, this is actually looking pretty good.

I've always liked being able to switch it up to the enemies, guess that's why I liked Alien Vs Predator so much, as I could play all 3 species.

Hmmm, this also reminds me, and as I've often said previously....
I want a new Killzone game where we only play as the Helgast, and based their own storyline too!

Doesn't really look like they're the bad guys... change the perspective, then you change the alignment.

Can t agree more . You play 2 character that are on a suicide mission to save their entire race , not really what i call playing as the bad guys .
