A new Styx: Shards of Darkness trailer has surfaced today ahead of E3 next week, showcasing the sequel to Master of Shadows. The second game in the series will be hitting consoles and PC this year, with bigger production values, new features and new Unreal Engine 4 powered visuals.
This new video sees the eponymous green-skinned goblin anti-hero Styx sneaking his way through Thoben, the City of Thieves, where he has a deal to make with mysterious human officer, Helledryn. Your task is to swipe the coveted ambassador’s sceptre, while other nefarious parties seek to seize it.
Styx will have to evade dwarves, elves and other races, adjusting to each race’s strengths and weaknesses, like the Dark Elves’ heightened sense of smell. You’ll sneak, assassinate, craft and perform other activities during your quest when Styx: Shards of Darkness launches for Xbox One, PS4 and PC later this year.
