Styx: Master of Shadows is a perfect but underrated stealth game which I enjoyed every second while playing. Stealth mechanics are smooth, it has a rich atmosphere and a very well designed protagonist, and it is everything which you can expect from a stealth game. I enjoyed it so much, I was in shock when I found out that not everybody is fond of it.
But still, I believe the new gameplay trailer of Styx: Shards of Darkness will get you to believe me. Even if you don’t like Master of Shadows, Shards of Darkness will get your attention with this trailer.
Styx: Shards of Darkness will give us a chance to delve deeper into a more complex narrative and fully realized world with our centuries-old goblin friend. But in order to switch from Unreal Engine 3 to Unreal Engine 4, Shards of Darkness has been delayed until 2017.
“This update has brought so much to the Styx series, from graphical enhancements to new gameplay mechanics and features. The engine transition has required some time for our team to adapt to. We’re dedicated to providing the best stealth experience possible for players, so in agreement with our publisher Focus, we are delaying the game until the first quarter of 2017.”
