Psst! The New Styx: Master of Shadows Gameplay Trailer is here!

In many games, the Goblin is the enemy. However in Styx: Master of Shadows, the goblin strikes back, and many are calling him a case of “Assassin’s Green.” Coming this October, Styx: Master of Shadows is an upcoming stealth action game for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms.

In a mystical fantasy adventure, a very rich treasure lies away deep inside a heavily fortified kingdom. To grab it, you must infiltrate this deep, richly detailed fortress. A full frontal attack is suicide but the Goblin, Styx, is very skilled in the art of stealth.

Featured above, the gameplay trailer highlights the very smooth, fluid level of stealth combat in the game. The fortress has a degree of verticality, allowing Styx to stalk his enemies from high above. Using objects, cloaking, flexible movement within the smallest of spaces, special vision, and dozens upon dozens of other possibilities, Styx becomes what can essentially be described as a badass in the shadows. As shown in the trailer, Styx uses his advantages to the fullest and can take down foes in brutal, slick ways.

Guillaume Blanchard, Project Manager of Cyanide Studios, elaborates further on what Styx is capable of.

“Push people off ledges, pull them by their legs to the gallows, or leap from huge heights to slit their throats or stab them from their shoulders. Smother them silently, swing around from behind, or thrust throwing daggers into their skulls. Drop crates onto the toughest of enemies, or poison their drinking water. As violent as he is cunning, Styx’ best friend is his knife, and the shadows.”

    Oh that’s why it looked so familiar to Of Orcs and Men.
