In a brutal world at war, where the Empire of Men seeks to expand its domination and impose its beliefs, Goblins are systematically persecuted and slaughtered, while Orcs, if not killed in battle, are destined to be enslaved. Play as Arkaïl, an elite Orc soldier of the legendary legion of Bloodjaws, a league of warriors devoted to victory in the war against Humankind. As a veteran group of warriors who have seen the most brutal of battles, the Bloodjaws are appointed to complete a mission that could change the course of the war: kill the one man responsible for all of the bloodshed, the one who has, for years, exhorted the human masses to loath and fight the green-skinned people... the Emperor himself. Goblin, Styx will soon join you to aid you in your mission. He is everything Arkaïl is not. While Arkaïl focuses on power, due to his incredible strength, Styx benefits from darker powers and stealth abilities, making him the perfect assassin. From the filthy alleys at the foot of the Great Wall to the depths of the Empire of Men, your heroes will face the greatest dangers throughout their epic quest.

Tough Strategic RPG
This is a new IP from the developer that made the Game of Thrones RPG. Honestly, I prefer the Game of Thrones game, but Of Orcs & Men isn't bad at all, it's actually quite good, just a little infuriating when it comes to the difficulty. This is without a doubt one of the hardest games I've played. You will die over & over again, trying multiple times to defeat hordes of enemies. And since it's more of a turn-based system in real-time, it would seem like it would take a lot of skill/preparation and less luck, but it's even hard when you're fully prepared, so a lot of it is luck. That said, if you can manage to overcome the insane difficulty (even on the easiest setting), there's a fun and lengthy RPG here with beautiful environments, fun characters, and a rather well-told story.
