Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide Studios released a new Styx: Shards of Darkness E3 trailer to whet the appetite for those who like a bit of action stealth gameplay. Styx: Shards of Darkness will be available in 2016 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
While Styx is in business in Thoben, the City of Thieves, he makes a deal with a mysterious human officer, Helledryn. As Styx, you must steal the highly-coveted ambassador’s scepter… unfortunately, other, more nefarious parties are interested in such a valuable prize. Of course, the reward is more than worth the risk, as the officer is promising a great deal of magical amber; the resource Styx desperately needs to fuel his power.
Sneak your way to your objectives, evading dwarves, elves, and all manner of other races, all the while hunting down the scepter. Creatively utilize all of Styx’s tools: assassination, amber powers, talents and skills, equipment, and crafting!
Each race excels at a different thing. The Dark Elves, for instance, are experts at goblin hunting while the Dwarves have a supernatural sense of smell, enabling them to track you down (even when invisible!). Learn their strengths and weaknesses if you want to survive long enough to snatch the scepter.
