Are you ready to deepen again into the fantastical world of elves, goblins, and dwarves? If yes, welcome to our fan club that is anxious to see another varaiant of the highly appreciated game all over the world, and the name to this game is “Styx:Shards of Darkness”.
Short review of the franchise and new features of the upcoming game
Here we are to discuss the sequel to the Styx: Master of Shadow game created by Cyanide Studios and published by Focus Home. So what should we know about the project itself? First of all is that it was highly appreciated by the large audiences which resulted in the decision to create another project subtitled Shards of Darkness. Does it seem to you that the story is going to be darker if to look at the title? So in order not to beat around the bush, let’s turn ar once to the new characteristics of the upcoming game.
The principal hero called Styx is to be more artful and experienced. And there is no surprise in it because he should improve his skills during the first part of the franchise.
The plot is expected to be more complicated with new details and expanded world that is depicted fully as realistic one. And again it is no wonder. The reason for it is quite simple. The budget of the upcoming game is highly increased in comparison with the previous variant of the project.
Publisher Focus Home Interactive stated Master of Shadows was received positively enough for the production company to create another installment with the assassin – this time with an expanded budget. It is even enough to look at the posters that show all this off. The majority of them is taken, by the way, from the Körangar mission area.
Moreover, the new game is to be based on a new modern engine called Unreal Engine 4. Even reading its name, we are catching ourselves thinking that it must be unreally powerful as well as the anticipated game. The third-person narration is preserved.
In the game, we are to fight against new portion of enemies using completely new skills and abilities as for instance grapping around corners or using a knide to zip-wire. The landscapes are also to be changed somehow.
What is about the storyline?
Let us remind you that in the game there are three races: the Goblins, the Dwarves, and the Elves. By what are the Elves and the Dwarves connected is that the tow races hate the Goblins. The even unite their power in order to defeat them.
The main character should come back in order to infiltrate Körangar. If you are not aware of the plot, let’s say that it is the town of Dark Elves.
The summit being held in the town gives an immediate opportunity to the principal character to get into the city stealthily. This turns to be everything we have got about the upcoming story, unfortunately.
The Styx: Shards of Darkness is currently known much to the regret of the game fans. We recommend keeping abreast of the situation concerning the launch of the project in order to join the team of first players that will embark on the game.
