Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide Studios released new screenshots for their upcoming stealth video game, Styx: Shards of Darkness.

The screenshots show off “Styx prowling through some of the huge environments of the game. From the City of Thieves, built from the wreckages of lost ships, to the great Elven city of Korangar hidden in the mountains, the environments of Styx: Shards of Darkness are enormous and semi-open, with an emphasis on verticality.

They allow for a lot of freedom to complete the various missions’ objectives. They are fantastic playgrounds for Styx to test his stealth and assassination skills, and try out his new moves such as rope-swinging and zip-lining!”

“These are just some of the huge open spaces oozing with verticality to explore in Styx’s new infiltration adventure! With new ways to traverse the landscape, a deep and original story, as well as huge new features yet to be revealed, Styx’s 2016 mission will be his biggest yet!,” said the developer on the website.

“Styx’s sneaky adventure comes back with new features, new environments, and Unreal Engine 4!”

The sequel to infiltration cult classic, Styx: Master of Shadows (2014), Shards of Darkness was announced in October 2015.

Styx: Shards of Darkness will release sometime in 2016 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
