Focus Home Interactive has just released a new trailer showcasing the cooperative mode in Cyanide Studio‘s upcoming stealth title Styx: Shards of Darkness. The game will be released on March 14th, and stealth fans looking forward to lurking in the shadows with friends will be happy to learn that it includes a fully featured drop-in/drop-out co-op mode. The whole campaign is playable with a friend, letting gamers plan and execute synchronized assassinations, carry out distraction maneuvers that would be impossible while playing solo, and even more gameplay possibilities to be discovered.
Styx returns in a new stealth adventure!
Explore and master huge open environments, sneak past or assassinate new enemies and bosses, and experiment with the new array of lethal abilities and weapons in our goblin assassin’s arsenal.
Sneak your way alone, or with a friend in coop mode! Climb the dizzying Elven city, traverse the perilous territory of the Dwarfs, and survive vast unexplored lands filled with lethal dangers to fulfill your mission… failure to succeed could have huge consequences for your kin.
Climb, swing, and hang through multi-layered sandbox environments brought to life with Unreal Engine 4. Creep and hide in the darkest corners, or reach heights to avoid detection. Spend experience points in assassination, infiltration, magic, etc. to learn new skills and abilities. Explore the world to recover valuable artifacts, find ingredients to craft deadly traps and useful items, and create clones of yourself to distract and deceive the many types of enemies on your way – the choice is yours!
