Cyanide’s goblin infiltration game gets a new set of shady screenshots.
Cyanide Studio are trying their hand at stealth games with Styx: Master of Shadows. You’ll be taking the role of Styx, a goblin assassin heading into the Tower of Akenash to amass a small fortune and maybe find out a little about his origins, since he’s not just a goblin – he’s the first of all goblins. You’ll have to gather information, steal loot, and (naturally) murder your opposition.
You’ve got six talent trees to upgrade, a variety of special powers to use, and a number of methods you can employ to stay hidden and keep the guards unsuspecting.
No word on a release date yet, but I’d take a guess at “sometime later this year.”
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 about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning 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.
