Styx: Shards of Darkness Sneaks In A Trailer Before E3

By Sam Quirke, 1 year ago
Styx: Shards of Darkness was announced around eight months ago and, since then, we haven't heard much from developer Cyanide beyond a few screenshots. Just in time for E3, we've finally got a trailer.

The sequel to 2014's Styx: Master of Shadows, Shards of Darkness boasts a bigger budget and a better engine, namely the Unreal Engine 4. Here we see Styx accept a contract from the mysterious Helledryn, to steal a sceptre from an ambassador.


Styx: Shards of Darkness will be present in some capacity at E3 according to the developers. No specific release date is given beyond '2016'.
