Goblin Assassins in Styx: Master of Shadows
Have you ever wanted to re-live your Assassin’s Creed fantasies as a Goblin? I don’t suppose many of you would, and that is fairly normal. However, once you take a peak at the new trailer for Styx: Master of Shadows, you might, just might, start to dream those Gobliny dreams.
The trailer is called ‘Assassin’s Green’ and is clearly designed to poke fun at the Ubisoft franchise while showing off what makes Styx and surprisingly interesting looking title. There is much climbing of buildings, killing of foes through sneaky dagger attacks, killing of foes through sneaky crate dropping and plenty of Goblin special powers.
Ever trustworthy Styx is armed with only a dagger and a small number of throwing knives, his ability to sneak around is paramount. The trailer shows Styx nimbly jumping behind pillars, enabling a special view mode which is reminiscent of the Detective Mode in the recent Batman games along with the ability to turn invisible for a brief period of time.
It looks fairly interesting and will be coming out this October on PC and and will be downloadable on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
