Styx: Master Of Shadow Sequel Slated To Arrive Next Year
Stealth fans, pay attention.
Developer Cyanide Studios has announced a follow-up effort to last year's Styx: Master of Shadow. This sequel is called Styx: Shards of Darkness and will be published by Focus Home Interactive.
As the first title didn't exactly burn up the review charts, Cyanide promises "more ambition" and "bigger ideas" in the new project. First up, they've got a new engine in Unreal Engine 4, and players can expect fresh enemies, environments and control mechanics. This time, we'll have access to all sorts of nifty maneuvers, like rope-climbing and grappling. The game's first official screenshot is posted above. As for story, we'll get a "more complex narrative" and here's a snippet from the team:
"Following the fall of Akenash tower, an extraordinary matter has forced Styx out of hiding to infiltrate Körangar, the city of the Dark Elves. Supposedly impregnable, a diplomatic summit offers Styx a chance at slipping in unnoticed, as he learns that the event is nothing but a mere facade... Moreover, the Elves have joined forces with the Dwarves, and the only thing both races have in common is a mutual hatred of the Goblins..."
Styx: Shards of Darkness is set to launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC some time next year.
