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”.
