Styx sequel sneaking onto console and PC



Styx Shards of Darkness

Focus Home Interactive announce the return of the goblin thief in Styx: Shards of Darkness.

The sequel to last year’s Styx: Master of Shadows will be built from the ground up in Unreal Engine 4 and aims to improve upon that game’s already impressive stealth mechanics.

The game has been in development at Cyanide Studios for 6 months and will feature a plethora of new mechanics aimed at refining the abilities and movement of the goblin assassin.


The first image released from the game shows the new Styx putting his skills to good use in Körangar, the city of the Dark Elves.

Ever so co-incidentally, Styx: Master of Shadows is the Midweek Madness deal on Steam, until Friday 16th October, benefiting from a 66% discount.

Styx: Shards of Darkness will be published by Focus Home Interactive and released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2016.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
