Hi everyone! Julien Desourteaux here, I’m the Lead Level Designer here at Cyanide. We’re on the final stretch now, as our stealth game Styx: Shards of Darkness is released in less than five days on 14th March for the Xbox One.
Today, I’d like to share with you the game’s launch trailer – this will give you a taste of Styx’s abilities, quick acrobatics, and even quicker tongue! Styx: Shards of Darkness is built in Unreal Engine 4, which has helped us when bringing you as complete and satisfying a stealth experience as possible!
Take control of agile goblin thief Styx, as he assassinates, sneaks, and snarks his way across an immense dark fantasy world. Explore and infiltrate every nook and cranny of a range of exotic locales, including an impenetrable Dark Elf city, airships in flight, and Styx’s home. You are tasked with stealing an ambassador’s scepter, which has attracted the interest of several nefarious parties. 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 the help of an array of all-new tools and abilities. Scout the path ahead using your amber vision, distract foes with a controllable goblin clone and 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!
Styx: Shards of Darkness releases Tuesday March 14 on Xbox One. Preorder the game now from participating stores, and get exclusive access to the Akenash set, donning the outfit and dagger from Styx’s first adventure. Sharpen your blades, bottle your poisons and sink into the shadows – your favorite Goblin thief is back!
