Styx: Shards of Darkness, Cyanide Studio’s new Stealth game, arrives March 14th to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, has gotten a new trailer focusing on the RPGs multiplayer aspects. The trailer showcases how you and a friend can sneak your way through the game together, jumping, climbing, hiding, joking and killing together thanks to the game’s drop-in/drop-out coop mode. You can check out the trailer for the multiplayer below.
In Styx: Shards of Darkness, players can work together to create elaborate distractions, unleash dastardly synchronized assassinations, and run circles around larger enemies – every level and mission is playable in coop and will open a new array of gameplay possibilities. The game is set to have a number of features, including:
- A brand new adventure in the universe of a centuries-old goblin assassin, taking you to the city of the Dark Elves
- New engine: beautiful graphics created in Unreal Engine 4
- New enemies, new environments, new abilities and improved stealth mechanics for Styx
- Unique co-op mode – join a friend’s game to sneak and stab through missions together
Describing the multiplayer mode, Cyanide Studios have said:
“At any time during your adventure, you are able to invite a friend to join your current session to sneak around with you for an alternative stealth experience. Two players opens up many more opportunities for clearing a level and reaching the objectives, but also doubles the risk of being spotted. Assassination partners must co-ordinate carefully in order to succeed.”
Following the fall of Akenash tower, an extraordinary matter has forced Styx out of hiding to infiltrate Körangar, the city of the Dark Elves. Supposedly impregnable, a diplomatic summit offers Styx a chance at slipping in unnoticed, as he learns that the event is nothing but a mere façade.
Styx: Shards of Darkness is scheduled to be released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on March 14.
