Styx: Shards of Darkness is an impressive stealth adventure game that challenges you to explore huge open environments and sneak past or assassinate new enemies and bosses.
As you fulfill your missions, you’ll climb a dizzying Elven city, traverse the dangerous territory of the Dwarfs, and survive inhospitable lands filled with lethal dangers. If you fail, your kin will suffer dire consequences. Go to the darkest corners or reach the highest heights to hide from enemies. You can learn new skills by spending experience points in the assassination, infiltration, and magic categories. And if you pay attention to all the details around you, you’ll recover valuable artifacts and find ingredients to build deadly traps for your enemies.
You can choose to sneak alone or with a friend in co-op mode. The co-op mode is a drop-in/drop-out system where you can join or invite your friend whenever you want at every stage of the story. If you want to host the game, simply open a public or private session, invite a friend or wait for random people to come. Best of all: Styx: Shards of Darkness features multi-layered sandbox environments created with Unreal Engine 4.
