Styx: Shards of Darkness Launch Trailer Pounces Out a Week Before Release

With Styx: Shards of Darkness set for release next week, Cyanide Studio and Focus Home Interactive has seen it fit to release the Styx: Shards of Darkness launch trailer just to let people know what to expect from the stealth action game.

Here’s the info straight from the press release:

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. It’s not long before our green-skinned thief gets 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 co-op, you’ll discover even more ways to unleash chaos!

Styx: Shards of Darkness will sneak its way out this March 14 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Stay tuned to our review hitting the site soon.
