Ever in need of more stealth titles, Cyanide Studios and Focus Home Interactive put Unreal Engine to good us to bring us this new Art of Stealth trailer for Styx: Shards of Darkness.
Due for release in the busy month of March, Styx: Shards of Darkness is the sequel to the goblin's 2014 'Master of Shadows' venture. Still demonstrating his nimble mobility, the trailer ends with Styx letting loose to antagonize his victims one last time.
From the get-go of the 2-minute long stunt, we see Styx make good use of his small stature to easily climb a rope leading to his target location - a place presumably housing one of the titular shards of darkness after eviscerating and launching projectiles at whomever proved a threat to his quiet entrance.
Curious about the third title in the Of Orcs & Men franchise? Check out our original Styx review.
Getting a good look at the scene and identifying potential environmental takedowns, he scurries back into the shadows to pilfer a potion from the belt of a slacking attendee. Whatever was in the vial must have been key to continuing his efforts of laying down traps and luring as many people as possible to the potential 'death from above' tactic. Executing the plan, Styx makes off with the rock with a deliberate strong-man walk before bidding farewell to those who never saw him coming.
Though the trailer only mentioned a rough March release date, the current Steam pre-order page - complete with 10% off - still states March 14. Whether we're to expect a potential slight delay is up for question.
