Styx: Shards of Darkness slinks towards a 2017 release

Cyanide Studios’ follow up to Styx: Master of Shadows, is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2017.

Shards of Darkness continues where Master of Shadows left off and builds on the established stealth gameplay with a focus on movement, climbing and a deeper story.

With this new episode of Styx we updated our engine from Unreal 3 to Unreal 4. This update has brought so much to the Styx series, from graphical enhancements to new gameplay mechanics and features. The engine transition has required some time for our team to adapt to. We’re dedicated to providing the best stealth experience possible for players, so in agreement with our publisher Focus, we are delaying the game until the first quarter of 2017.

Styx: Shards of Darkness will be available in Q1 2017 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
