Xbox’s Major Nelson explains more :
Styx returns in a new stealth adventure! Hired for a critical mission, explore and master huge open environments as Styx, alone or in coop with a friend. Assassinate or sneak past enemies – Humans, Elves and Dwarfs – as well as more fearsome, colossal creatures, and experiment with the new array of lethal abilities and weapons in your goblin assassin’s arsenal. Spend experience points in assassination, infiltration, magic, to learn new skills and improve abilities. Explore, recover artifacts and ingredients to craft deadly traps and useful items, and create clones of yourself to deceive your enemies!
Pre-order now and get a bonus DLC the Akenash Set giving you access to 2 iconic items:- The Akenash Outfit from Styx’s first adventure, increasing the duration of a clone.- The Akenash Dagger: Styx’s first dagger. Old yet sturdy, this rusty blade was dragged through miles of infested marshes. Covered of deadly acid, anyone killed with the Akenash Dagger will dissolve instantly.
Developed with Unreal 4, Styx: Shards of Darkness, creeps into an ambitious with a host of new features!
In search for the Ambassador’s magical Scepter stolen by a shape-shifting Elf, Styx must infiltrate a diplomatic summit through clever use of the environment and new crafting abilities. A new feature, crafting, enables Styx to use more abilities, such as throwing a cocoon large distances enabling him to teleport into a newly hatched clone of himself.
The series’ lauded verticality returns, with many choices of routes and tactics to take throughout the level. Stick to the shadows on the ground, avoiding patrols, or turn to the walls and cielings to sneak past or attack from above. Kill, or subvert; the choice is yours – just don’t be seen!
The leveling system returns expanded and enhanced. Using the magical power of Amber, Styx is able to turn himself invisible for a short period of time, and if you choose to upgrade this skill, it can even turn victims invisible while you go in for kills. By levelling up the assassination tree, Styx gets access to improved aerial kills, as well as the ability to kill an enemy from a barrel or box and stuff the body inside in a single, swift, move.
