eProfits Game of the Week: Styx, Master of Shadows

This is another week where we’re profiling a game that isn’t even out yet, but we can’t help it: Styx looks awesome. Once you get over the initial skepticism inspired by its publisher Focus Home Interactive (who recently put out mediocre RPG Bound in Flames) and take a look at Styx, your wariness will soon begin to fade. Styx struck us as a hark back to the stealth and action-adventure titles from the PS1 and PS2 era, in the best way possible. It has flavours of Hitman and Soul Reaver with a dash of Fable thrown in — what’s not to like?

 

 

Styx, Master of Shadows is a stealth game where you guide a goblin hooked on a substance called Amber through a giant, open-spaced tower in order to reach something called the WorldTree. The lore is interesting and the game even more so in action. Styx is a somewhat novel protagonist, especially in a video game landscape where you play the gruff, bearded adventurer one time too many, and the world is reasonably fleshed out in the stages the developers have shown us so far.

 

 

Slated for release somewhere near the end of the summer for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, Styx has a lot of promise, but it’s all too easy to drop the ball on an overhyped premise. The developer commentary in the 15 minutes of gameplay they’ve released doesn’t inspire much confidence, so it’s a good thing the game underneath looks fun. Being a stealth title, you’re going to spend a good part of the game biding your time in hiding places, so kudos to the developers for peppering the game with interesting banter from the guards while you wait to sneak past them or silently take them out.

 

We’re keeping a close eye on Styx, and we think you should, too. The publishers have announced this one as a budget title to boot, so you can count on Styx not putting too big a dent in your wallet once it comes out. Expect a review when it does.
