Styx - Master of Shadows Overview
Styx: Master of Shadows is a stealth RPG infiltration game from Cyanide Studio. The protagonist of the game is Styx, the goblin assassin from 2012's Of Orcs and Men. This is a prequel to that game, and follows Styx as he tries to climb the Tower of Akenash. But this must be done with the utmost care. Missions that take you up the tower might end in plunder and murder, but there must be no trace of what you've done. The vertically-inclined game will see Styx go from level to level, with multiple approaches to complete each objective. With an emphasis on both stealth and careful, measured decisions. As Styx, you are cunning and a powerful blade, but small and vulnerable. You'll be able to customize and upgrade Styx' skills to help face the huans, Elves, Orcs, and more ahead. FEATURES
