Cyanide Studio’s Call of Cthulhu, an upcoming adaptation of Chaosium’s pen-and-paper role-playing game, just received a new trailer. Created for E3, the video highlights what is in store for players in a macabre 1920’s Boston. As private investigator Edward Pierce, players will look into the murder of Sarah Hawkins on Darkwater Island. Cthulhu’s influence will gradually grow stronger as Pierce pokes his nose around the island and the Hawkins Family Mansion, and the closer he finds himself to the Great Old One’s influence, the more his sanity will be tested.

Styx is showing the goods from his upcoming title Shards of Darkness in a new E3 trailer. The sequel to Master of Shadows finds Styx taking on a new assignment for Helledryn, an enigmatic human officer stationed in Thoben, the City of Thieves. The target is the ambassador’s scepter, a prized object that others are looking to steal for themselves. If Styx can get his hands on it, he’ll get some of the magical amber that fuels his powers. The different races require different skills as each excels in their own areas, with Dark Elves being expert goblin hunters and Dwarves having an excellent sense of smell. To handle them, players will have access to numerous powers, talents, crafting, and equipment. And assassination, there’s always that.

Goblins to get their time in the spotlight in Styx: Master of Shadows

Styx Master of Shadows (PC) Announcement - Screenshot 1

Of Orcs and Men’s goblin trickster Styx will be starring in his own adventure for PC, Styx: Master of Shadows. As the 200-year-old thief, players must sneak into the Tower of Akenash to steal its precious Amber. The tower is miles high and heavily guarded, so Styx will need to undertake missions to reach the top, including stealing precious artifacts and assassinating its human and elven inhabitants. Cyanide plans for the action to be open and fluid, with levels designed so that players have numerous ways to accomplish their tasks, while a six-skill-tree system allows players to customize Styx’s talents. A dynamic AI will require that Styx stick to the shadows, but from there, he can lay traps to make a guard’s death look like an accident—or toss caution to the wind and just stab them (he is a dirty, dirty goblin after all).

Of Orcs and Men shows dynamics of teamwork in new trailer

Orc warrior Arkail and Styx the Goblin’s unique relationship is highlighted in the latest trailer for Of Orcs and Men. Arkail provides the muscle of the group while Styx compensates for his smaller stature with quick wits and fast feet, but both are needed for the requisite post-pummel high-five. I can only assume there will be plenty of … okay, probably low-fives … during their quest to assassinate the Emperor of Mankind. Also, I really like that this is titled “Buddy Trailer”.
