A very short preview of Cyanide's Of Orcs and Men is on offer at PC Magazine:

LOS ANGELES—The role-playing genre typically features human lead characters on epic adventures where the fate of the world/planet/galaxy hangs in the balance. Or Orcs and Men, an upcoming fantasy RPG from Cyanide Studios, dares to be a bit different. The title focuses on two non-human characters – an Orc named Arkill and a foul-mouthed goblin named Styx – who are out to assassinate a human emperor who waged war against their green-skinned people.

The majority of the game sees players using the two characters in tandem. Arkill the orc is a powerhouse who relies on heavy melee combat; Styx the goblin is a trickster who relies on stealth, sneaky one-hit kills, and ranged attacks. Players can switch between characters on the fly, and when they do, the computer A.I. controls the other character.
