Styx steps up his trailer game for Shards of Darkness

Styx: Shards of Darkness

Styx has always been a pretty decent stealth game. Nothing amazing, but it does what it says on the tin: lets you play as a goblin who stalks from the shadows and shanks people in the neck.

The new trailer makes the game look a lot better than I was expecting, to be honest. It’s always been competent, but this video makes it look – dare I say it – exciting.

It shows Styx planning and pulling off a heist, slipping by sentries and yanking down a massive light fitting onto a bunch of unaware heads.

There’s also a little look at some abilities, such as bottled minions and some kind of invisibility cloak. Check it out in the trailer above.
