Goblin’s repertoire of tricks gets showcased ahead of stealth fantasy adventure’s March release
Hello! Julien Desourteaux here, Lead Level Designer on Styx: Shards of Darkness, here to introduce our game via the latest trailer before its release in March this year. Today, you can watch Styx subvert Elven defenses in a stealthy attack that sees him using throwing daggers, knives, traps and even chandeliers to distract and kill his enemies – just a few of the abilities you’ll be enjoying in the game – and steal the coveted Quartz, a source of magical power.
As a nimble Goblin, Styx’s strengths are boosted by a magical Amber flowing through his veins, allowing him a plethora of magical abilities such as amber vision, short-term invisibility, and even the possibility to clone himself. As well as these, Shards of Darkness introduces crafting, allowing Styx to create tools and gadgets to distract, disable, and kill his foes. If you take a little time to explore each of the large, varied levels, you’ll be able to find new equipment to bolster your arsenal and lead the perfect stealthy attack on unsuspecting Elves, Dwarves, and other enemies in the world.
If you’re a fan of stealth games, you’ll enjoy that every tool in your disposal has been created to supplement a clever, stealthy approach. Whether that means killing everyone, or merely disabling enemies for a clean run. Either way, you can remain unseen, and undetected! It’s entirely up to you.
So I hope you enjoy Styx: Shards of Darkness when it releases in March of this year for PlayStation 4, and make use of each of the skill trees that’ll allow you to level up and improve our nimble green goblin to better suit your needs as a player!
