Focus Home Interactive andhave announced a follow-up to the somewhat surprisingly well-received stealth game Styx: Master of Shadows. We get on with it, but apparently some people did.
Coming in 2016, Styx: Shards of Darkness is a sequel that promises a bigger budget, reworked movement and animations for goblin infiltrator Styx himself, and a move over to the Unreal Engine 4. Here's the plot synopsis:
"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 façade… 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…"
Expect new enemies, new environments, and new moves including the ability to climb ropes, use your knives as a zipwire, and grapple from around corners. In the meantime, if you want to check out the original game, it's on sale overfor 66% off.
