Styx: Master Of Shadows - New Preview
Gamer Headlines has posted a short preview of Styx: Master Of Shadows.
It is clear that Styx: Master of Shadows is a stealth game through and through. We welcome the uniqueness of Styx, being a Goblin who is driven only by addiction, far from the usual hero we normally admire. There is still much to be revealed in regards to enemies, abilities, and the game’s storyline, but we look forward to stealthily delving into Styx: Master of Shadows in late Summer of 2014.

Styx: Master Of Shadows - Interview @ Pure News
Marketing Project Manager Camille Lisoi of Cyanide was interviwed by Pure News, and talked about their upcoming game Styx: Master of Shadow.
Pure News Question : Can you tell us what is Styx: Master of Shadows all about?
Answer: The game is centered around Styx, a goblin master assassin who is two centuries old. He wants to steal the heart of the World Tree: the source of the amber, immense power and fabulous riches, but that could also be the explanation of his origin. To reach this objective, he’ll have to cross the immense Tower of Akenash, protected by many of his enemies: humans, elves, orcs, and even more…
With the gameplay, our aim was to go back to the roots of the stealth genre
Pure News Question : Few are the games that have the main character as a Goblin, why did you choose Styx to be a Goblin?
Answer:As fans of the stealth genre, we felt that recent iterations of well known stealth licenses were too action-oriented and were missing the ingredients that make a good stealth game, such as tension, observation or exploration. Choosing a goblin as the hero is the best way to make the player understand that a head-on attack is not likely to bring success. Some may consider Styx as fragile, but in fact he is resourceful thanks to his agility, assassin skills and magical powers. You will have to plan your actions; it’s what a stealth game is all about
Pure News Question : How is the stealth gameplay? Can we complete the game without killing anyone and just stunning with take downs?
Answer: You really have to be aware of the many details in a level to progress. For example, sound and light are always taken into account. If you drop an object on the floor by mistake, the sound will help your enemies to spot you. You have to be careful and attentive, you cannot rush headlong into the fray; or you won’t survive for long!
We want to offer a real challenge to the player, with a game requiring strategy and thought. But to make the things fair, you’ll have powerful tools at your disposal that you’ll have to use wisely.
You can go through the entire game without killing anyone, except if one of your missions is precisely to kill someone. It is even better to avoid killing your opponents, because you’ll gain more experience.

Styx - E3 Preview @ Side Questing
Side Questing has posted a new preview of Styx: Master Of Shadows from E3 that is based on a demo with the games Lead Designer Julien Descourtieux.
Left field is where Styx: Master of Shadows seems to have come out of. Going in to E3 I knew nothing about the game or the Of Orcs and Men property. Coming out of our preview demo at Focus Home Interactive’s booth, I suddenly feel like left field is much closer to home than before. Styx looks like it may be a fun, enjoyable late Summer experience.
Our demo is guided by Julien Desourteaux, Lead Designer. “Master of Shadows is very much a stealth action game,” Desourteaux says. “Styx is one of the most popular characters in Of Orcs and Men, and we wanted to show how things from his vantage point in his own game.” That vantage point — lower to the ground, moving through dark alleys, hiding evidence and objects – is what sets Styx apart from other stealth-themed games. Being in a sort of perpetual crouched position means that we need an alternate set of actions to complete missions.

Styx, the goblin assassin, is climbing his way up the Tower of Akenash. From the murky, oppressive depths of the tower to the opulent and magnificent summits where the elite guards and the citizens of the tower reside, Styx will have to work hard to reach his objective: The Tree, the source of the Amber, the promise of infinite riches he would like to possess. Master assassin and part-time thief, Styx will be able to remove any objects hampering his progress: but don’t leave any clues behind that could betray your presence to the guards... like a lifeless body in a walkway!
But not only humans and elves inhabit the Tower of Akenash; other fantastic creatures also roam the gloomy halls and passages of this immense tower, and it’s generally wise to avoid them… if you don’t want to end up as dinner for a hungry Orc!

Styx: Master Of Shadows - New ARPG Game
Cyanide Studio's announces a new ARPG called Styx: Master Of Shadows. Looks like the goblin sidekick from Of Orcs And Men got his own spin-off. Here are the details.
CYANIDE AND FOCUS HOME INTERACTIVE UNVEIL STYX: MASTER OF SHADOWS IN SCREENSHOTS
Styx: Master of Shadows is an infiltration game with RPG elements developed by Cyanide Studio for PC. After many months in development, Styx: Master of Shadows can now reveal the very first official screenshots: here we see Styx, the playable character in the game, progressing through some of the dizzying levels composing the adventure.
Styx is a Goblin two centuries old... the very first of all the Goblins, he’s a master in the arts of stealth, theft, and murder. The depths of the miles-high Tower of Akenash, where Humans and Elves hide and protect the Tree, the source of the Amber, are the best chance Styx has of quickly amassing a small fortune and, perhaps, discover more about his true origins along the way.
Battle your way to the top of the lofty Tower of Akenash through immense and vertiginous levels that highlight the vertical perspective. You will complete numerous missions with various objectives as you climb up – murder, information recovery, theft of precious artifacts, etc – and gradually reconstruct the puzzle that provides the key to the mystery of your origins. The levels are open and the objectives can be completed in various ways: you are therefore free to choose the best way to proceed and the most suitable strategy to employ to achieve and complete your mission objectives. But remember you’re a Goblin: if your target is twice your size, or more, you're better off eliminating them silently… and in the back!
