Embrace the shadows, or die trying!
Styx: Master of Shadows, is a challenging, skill-based infiltration game from Cyanide Studio that rewards player skill, timing, and lateral path finding, coming October for download on PS4®, Xbox One® and PC for €29.99/£24.99. Clambering up into the rafters and dispatching enemies in some of the many ways previously seen goes only some way to keeping Styx alive, the rest is up to you. In this video, we fail at doing that.
Even though Styx is a gifted goblin – with six base skill trees, and one special tree to subvert, assassinate and sneak past the enemies – his journey through the Tower of Akenash definitely won’t be a cakewalk. Enemies react promptly to the goblin’s presence: stick your nose out of the shadows for half a second too long, make too much noise slicing the throat of a guard or bumping a piece of furniture you did not notice, and they will come investigate, search for you under tables, inside any containers or chests you may be hiding in, and call in other guards for help depending on their level of “alertness”.
We have also previously seen that Styx is gifted in the arts of amber magic: amber vision, cloning himself, and even good-old fashioned invisibility. Yet, while these useful skills might save his skin in dangerous situation, they will drain his precious reserves of Amber, which is scantily scattered throughout the Tower of Akenash. As such, special skills will have to be used with great care, especially when it comes to turning invisible: it drains amber extremely quickly – and even then, not every enemy will be fooled by such… transparent tricks.
When cornered, you will be able to parry yourself out of a situation… however, this is definitely not a silent option, and if you find yourself facing even just a few enemies at once, you’re goblin toast. Purists will even be able to select the Goblin Mode difficulty, which means that whenever Styx is caught, he has no chance to fight back. Instead, he’ll be shot, strangled, hammered, or sliced into pieces the second he’s in range and noticed…
Styx Master of Shadows is downloadable this October on PS4®, Xbox One® and PC at £24.99.
September patch adds new levels and gameplay to Steam early access; terrifying new vision of Pac Man now available
RedBedlam has released new content for its innovative genre-hopping FPS, Bedlam. New levels featuring a host of familiar titles twisted to a whole new perspective can now be played.
The September content patch adds gameplay to the first two gameworlds (Starfire & Death or Glory), in addition to a zombie sewer level and the inclusion of German subtitles. It also introduces the first two arcade levels, Chilli Chomper and Guano Attack – which riff on classic arcade titles Pac Man and Space Invaders. The new content expands Bedlam to 15 levels and around 3 hours of gameplay time, and includes many bug fixes.
“I’m really excited for people to experience the new content we’ve created for Bedlam. I’m incredibly proud of our work on Chilli Chomper, and as expected Pac Man is absolutely thrilling and pretty scary as an FPS.” said Nick Witcher, Marketing Director at RedBedlam.
To reflect the content added by the update, an updated trailer has been released, which now further illustrates Bedlam’s imaginative concept.
Developed in association with Standfast Interactive and mirroring the events of the novel Bedlam by acclaimed author Christopher Brookmyre, the generation-spanning FPS takes players into a unique world of action and intrigue, visiting a range of genres old and new, from arcade platformer classics to modern RTS and shooter environments, all from a first person perspective and with a smattering of author Chris Brookmyre’s trademark dark humour.
Developed by Shinji Mikami and the talented team at Tango Gameworks, The Evil Within embodies the meaning of pure survival horror. Highly-crafted environments, horrifying anxiety, and an intricate story are combined to create an immersive world that will bring you to the height of tension. With limited resources at your disposal, you’ll fight for survival and experience profound fear in this perfect blend of horror and action.
While investigating the scene of a gruesome mass murder, Detective Sebastian Castellanos and his partners encounter a mysterious and powerful force. After seeing the slaughter of fellow officers, Sebastian is ambushed and knocked unconscious. When he awakens, he finds himself in a deranged world where hideous creatures wander among the dead. Facing unimaginable terror, and fighting for survival, Sebastian embarks on a frightening journey to unravel what’s behind this evil force.
The Evil Within releases on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC on Tuesday, October 14th in North America and Europe.
