Focus Home Interactive released a new trailer this week for the upcoming Cyanide Studio sequel, Styx: Shards of Darkness. You can check out the new “Art of Stealth” trailer, with new gameplay footage, in the player below. The game is set to arrive in March as a multi-platform release.
The new trailer shows Styx countering Elven defenses with a stealth attack that sees him using throwing daggers, knives, traps, and even chandeliers to distract and kill his enemies and steal the coveted Quartz, a source of magical power. Styx has his strengths boosted by the magical Amber that flows throughout his body and grants him magical abilities. These include amber vision, short-lived invisibility, and the ability to clone himself. The upcoming sequel also introduces crafting to the franchise, and Styx can create tools and gadgets to distract, disable, and kill his foes.
Styx: Shards of Darkness arrives in March 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. The final release date will be revealed later on. The game is available to pre-order now on Windows PC via Steam for a 10 percent off discount, and players will get exclusive access to the Akenash set, featuring the outfit and dagger from Styx’s first adventure.
