Stealth spin-off Styx: Master of Shadows announced

Sneaking through open levels, pilfering treasure, stealing information, and quietly assassinating guards is the grand vision Cyanide Studio has for its newly-announced PC stealth 'em up Styx: Master of Shadows. The eponymous goblin was introduced in 2012's RPG Of Orcs and Men, but has apparently ditched his burly orc chum for now.

Sneaking through open levels, pilfering treasure, stealing information, and quietly assassinating guards is the grand vision Cyanide Studio has for its newly-announced PC stealth 'em up Styx: Master of Shadows. The eponymous goblin was introduced in 2012's RPG Of Orcs and Men, but has apparently ditched his burly orc chum for now for a grand heist. Master of Shadows will see Styx infiltrating the "miles-high" Tower of Akenash, stealing treasure, and investigating his origins along the way. "The levels are open and the objectives can be completed in various ways," publisher Focus Home Interactive said in today's announcement, so he'll need to scout around and plan carefully. Styx has a few sneaky tricks up his grubby sleeves too, thanks to skill trees, from turning invisible to creating clones of himself. Focus Home hasn't yet said when Styx will arrive on PC.
