This game is the follow up sequel to the 2014, Styx: Master of Shadows game developed by Cyanide Studios and published by Focus Home Interactive, Focus Home Interactive released a new gameplay trailer today. You can see several of Styx’s new abilites and tools such as advanced cloning and acid traps.
Cloning is one of Styx’s distinctive abilities, and they have received a major upgrade. One of the new upgradeable abilities is the cocoon, which is a craftable item that you can throw to spawn your clone at a distance. Another new ability is called Rebirth, which teleports Styx to his clone’s location, killing it in the process. It can be used in a number of ways – to travel to spots that are difficult to reach, or to get out of danger when things get dicey.
They added three new locations in Wildoran the hunters’ village, the secret Sanctuary of the Dark Elven city Korrangar, and Thoben, the city of thieves.
Styx’s second adventure builds upon the foundations laid Akenash, with more fluid movement and climbing abilities, a richer story told with cinematics including an enhanced bestiary, and side-missions to complete for the sneakiest of goblins.
Styx: Shards of Darkness will release on Xbox One and PS4 as well as PC in March 2017. If you pre-order on Steam, you will get the Akanesh set including the special outfit and dagger from the original game.
