Styx: Master of Shadows’ launch trailer sneaks out

Styx: Master of Shadows’ launch trailer sneaks out


Is it just me, or does the voice-over in this Styx: Master of Shadows launch trailer sound like somebody doing a Stephen Russell-as-Garrett impression? That’s not a complaint, incidentally.

Either way, Styx: Master of Shadows is out on 7 October (tomorrow), and as such there’s a launch trailer. It’s not a bad one either, offering a pretty good glimpse at the sort of stealthy shenanigans Styx will be getting up to in the game, and the voice-over work actually seems pretty solid.

Nonetheless, I’m a little bit wary of Styx: Master of Shadows because it’s being developed by Cyanide Studio, and pretty much every game of theirs I’ve played can be summed up with “it’s a nice idea and it’s not bad, but…” As far as I’m aware, Peter Parrish is currently sneaking his way through the review code, so we should have a review for you very soon.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.

      That voice-over is pretty Garrett-ey. The weird thing is, even though it’s the same actor doing the Styx voice in the game, he doesn’t perform it this way. He’s doing more a ’50s gangster wiseguy’ thing.
