Focus Home Interactive has released a gameplay movie for Styx: Master of Shadows, showcasing this infiltration game with RPG elements developed by Cyanide Studio for PC. The main character of the game is Styx, a Goblin two centuries old, a master in the arts of stealth, theft, and murder. He will battle his way to the top of the lofty Tower of Akenash through immense and vertiginous levels that highlight the vertical perspective. 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.
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.
Styx: Master of Shadows 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. You will also acquire extraordinary powers from the Amber flowing from the Source Tree which will help you out of a tight spot, make you invisible to the eyes of your enemies and which you can use to generate "disposable" clones of yourself.
