Video: The Unlikely Hero of Styx: Master of Shadows on PS4

50°
4d ago - Game Director Julien Desourteaux posted up a video today spotlighting the unlikely hero of Styx: Master of Shadows on PS4 below.

To quote: Styx: Master of Shadows is a stealth game set in a dark, mature, fantasy universe. Our goal was to return to the roots of the genre and revisit it through a unique character: Styx - a nimble, sneaky, sarcastic goblin.

We want to offer a real challenge to the player, with a game requiring strategy and reflection. Players really have to take care of many details to progress in a level. But to make things fair, players have powerful tools at their disposal that they'll have to use wisely.





Who is Styx?

Fragile and far removed from the brute hero that kicks butt, our goblin is a skillful assassin that excels at hiding.

Obsessed with the Amber, Styx would do absolutely anything to reach the source of this substance - the Heart of the Tree. Extremely cunning, he'll always find a solution to achieve this objective, by whatever means necessary.

What is Amber?

The Amber - a powerful and rare substance - gives Styx a wide array of magical powers, such as invisibility, enhanced senses, or even the ability to summon and control...

Video: Inside the Story of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on PS4

2w ago - Monolith Productions Community Manager Andy Salisbury shared a video that goes inside the story of middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on PS4 and PS3 with details below.

To quote: From the very beginning, all of us here at Monolith Productions knew we had to go to great lengths to make Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on PS4 and PS3 as authentic as possible.

From the landscape, to the weapons, to the inhabitants, to the architecture - everything required extreme attention to detail, and our main story was no exception.

To make the story of Talion and the mysterious Wraith he's connected to a reality, we worked with Lead Designer and Writer Christian Cantamessa (Red Dead Redemption).

And to bring our Ranger of The Black Gate to life, we could think of none better than the esteemed Troy Baker (The Last of Us, BioShock Infinite, Batman: Arkham City). Together, we're shaping this new tale set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.





Check out our latest trailer above, which shows a glimpse of what it was like on set, and look closely for the first glimpse of a beloved Middle-earth character, and a few new faces.

Both Troy and Christian had a tremendous impact on...

The Talos Principle on PS4: When Story Meets Puzzle

50°
2w ago - Writer Tom Jubert outlines When Story Meets Puzzle in The Talos Principle on PS4 today with details below, to quote:

Hello. I'm Tom Jubert, one of the writers on The Talos Principle for PS4, and I'm here to tell you a bit about the game because the other guys are lazy busy with finishing it.

Announced during the PlayStation press conference at E3 in June, The Talos Principle is a first-person philosophical puzzler from Croteam, the guys behind the Serious Sam games. It's a bit atmospheric, a bit sci-fi, and a proper challenge if you're looking for one.

The guys brought myself and Jonas Kyratzes on as writers around 9 months ago to deliver on their aspirations for the atmosphere and story. In The Talos Principle, you inhabit a robot body in a digital recreation of the ancient world, and explore at the behest of an omnipresent voice in the sky.

We're keeping our cards close to our chest on this one, but you could say Philip K. Dick's oeuvre is a close match for our general motif. We hope there's loads here to dig into and piece together if you're so minded, but equally if you're just here for the puzzles it won't get in your way.

About those puzzles. The concept has its roots in experimental puzzle mechanics developed for Serious Sam 4, and shares with that game...
