Take to the shadows.
Styx: Shards of Darkness is the upcoming fantasy stealth game that puts players in the boots of the Styx, a master thief who sticks to the shadows and strikes unseen against his enemies. The original game, Styx: Master of Shadows was released back in 2014 and now we know exactly when Styx will return.
As GameTransfers reports, publisher Focus Home Interactive has announced that Styx: Shards of Darkness will be released next year on March 14 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The original game received positive reviews, but was a little rough around the edges.
Developer Cyanide has promised the sequel will feature more enemy varieties, larger environments, and new gameplay mechanics that will allow greater freedom to the player. The game is also said to be less linear than the original game and Styx will have new powers and abilities to take advantage of.
