Co-developers Cyanide Studios and Spiders have announced Of Orcs and Men, a role-playing game in development for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. The game puts you in the middle of a brutal war where the Orcs and Goblins are going against the oppressive Humans.

Gamers will take the role of an elite Orc soldier from the legendary legion of Bloodjaws, a group of warriors fighting against humankind. You are appointed to try and end the conflict by taking out the person behind all the oppression; the Emperor. Joining you in the fight is a Goblin who unlike the powerful Orc, uses darker powers and stealth abilities.

The journey of these two heroes will have them commune with Wizards, fight soldiers of the Empire of Men, and oppose the powerful Sisters of Laments. It will be up to this unlikely duo to end the persecution and bring peace to the people of the world.

Of Orcs and Men is scheduled for a Spring 2012 release on the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. Enjoy the first screenshots of the game below and let us know what you think in the comments.
