Cyanide has released the first screenshots for Styx: Master of Shadows, in which we see Styx, the playable character in the game, progressing through some of the dizzying levels composing the adventure.
According to the press release, 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.”
In Styx: Master of Shadows players will battle their way to the top of the lofty Tower of Akenash through immense and vertiginous levels that highlight the vertical perspective.
Players will complete numerous missions with various objectives as they 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 game’s 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.
Styx: Master of Shadows also includes game mechanics right out of RPG, so as you gain experience you will unlock new skills, special and impressive moves and new and lethal weapons in 6 talent trees.
