After the fall of the tower of Akenash, rumor of an impregnable diplomatic summit has lured Styx out of hiding. Infiltrating the Dark Elf city of Korrangar, he sneaks his way in to find the event is just a deception...
In Shards of Darkness, Styx's arsenal has been expanded greatly. New weapons, such as a crossbow that can kill, tranquilize, and set off traps, and skills like a teleport to clone are fully at his disposal. He's got new moves such as more fluid climbing abilities like zip-lining and rope-swinging. There is also an awesome and useful new craftable item called the Acid Trap that can help dissolve armored enemies and eliminate those pesky hard-to-hide dead bodies.
New bestiary, new enemies, and new side-missions to complete have also been included. Probably the most notable new addition to the sequel is a co-operative mode, allowing players to join friend's games and play together. And of course a lot of new story with actually animated cinematics.
This looks to be a case of taking an awesome game and making a sequel better in every way possible.
Styx: Shards of Darkness sneaks onto PS4, Xbox One, and PC in March 2017.
