Styx: Shards of Darkness is now available, and it is everything you could want in a sequel.

It looks frikkin’ amazing, retains all the charm, and most of the abilities, of its predecessor, with more skills added on top, to be unlocked, it also has Styx being an absolutely cu…uh…not very nice if you die. He comes walking out of the mist to point out the jump button isn’t between your arse cheeks, flip you the bird and ask for a double pepperoni pizza, among other things.

Basically, if you liked Master of Shadows, you really can’t go wrong. Expect our full review soon.

 


Official Press Release

Styx: Shards of Darkness, the Stealth game from Cyanide Studio, releases today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC! Players will take control of agile goblin thief Styx, as he assassinates, sneaks and snarks his way across an immense, dark fantasy world filled with deadly secrets and enemies. Watch the game’s lively launch trailer for a taste of Styx’s abilities, quick acrobatics, and even quicker tongue!

Styx’s latest adventure sees him making an unexpected deal with a mysterious human officer named Helledryn – and she’s got a job with far higher stakes than anything he’s tackled before. He must steal an ambassador’s scepter, which has attracted the interest of several nefarious (and goblin-hating) parties. As a reward for completing this dangerous mission, he’s promised a mountain of magical Amber, the source of Styx’s power and a substance he’s hopelessly addicted to. Of course, it’s not long until our green-skinned thief is stuck in a web of intrigue and assassination!

Master the verticality and non-linearity of Styx: Shards of Darkness’ open environments with an array of tools and abilities. Struggling to bypass a heavily guarded entrance? Scout the path ahead using your amber vision, distract the guards with a controllable goblin clone, then emerge from temporary invisibility to stab them in the back! Styx will always have a wide range of dastardly creative methods for completing his objectives – and if you join a friend in the drop-in coop, you’ll discover even more ways to unleash chaos!
