Alongside seeing Styx’s demise over and over in this somewhat unflattering trailer, Cyanide and Focus Home Interactive have also announced the very exciting Goblin Mode difficulty which is most certainly one for the stealth purists amongst you, no longer will you have to restart the game as soon as you’re spotted, because if you do happen to be clumsy enough to be caught you’ll have no chance to fight back, after all you’re just a little goblin, so prepare to be shot, strangled, hammered, sliced, you name it, cause they’re not going to let you go!
If you’re not quite a fan of that idea, not all is lost as in most of the situations seen in the trailer, Styx is able to parry to get himself out of a sticky situation, however this isn’t Assassin’s Creed, so don’t expect your little goblin-self to be able to despatch a crowd of grumpy humans!
Styx: Master of Shadows is a brand new ‘infiltration’ game that puts you in the shoes of Styx a small 200-year-old Goblin; a master in the arts of stealth, theft and murder, so you don’t want to mess with him. In Styx: Master of Shadows you’ll find yourself in the depths of the Tower of Akenash, a lofty structure that looms miles high and promises precious artifacts and the key to Styx’s mysterious origins.
Styx Master of Shadows is coming to Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC for £24.99 this October, keep your eyes open for more gameplay trailers, or you may just miss them… get it, cause he’s stealthy.
