You've never seen the PC community band together quite as fast as when a developer or publisher announces plans to omit DRM from their title - and Styx: Shards of Darkness is the target of love for today.
Responding to a troll-like Steam Forum submission suggesting the game would include DRM, Focus Home Interactive arrived to shut down the thought by confirming the game includes no DRM whatsoever.
Appearing on a post that was heavily hinting at piracy, it was surprising to see the company turn the tides and sway the consumers in the way that they did. Once the quoted announcement appeared within the post, it was bombarded by Steam users rejoicing the decision and offering to by the game multiple times across various other marketplaces in an effect to commend and reward the bravery and consumer trust Focus Home Interactive was placing on their custom.
Releasing later today, Styx: Shards of Darkness is a sequel to the original Styx: Master of Shadows which, in itself, was a successor of sorts to Cyandide Studio's 2012 Action-RPG title 'Of Orcs and Men'.
Technically the third in a series, Styx's latest outing offers co-op stealth gameplay and the goblin's usual signature mouthy remarks. You can pick up a copy from GreenManGaming before the launch discount runs dry.
