Cyanide Studios have revealed some new screenshots for Styx: Shards of Darkness ahead of E3. The game is looking quite good on the Unreal Engine 4.
The press release reveals some new information about the game to go along with the new screenshots. Here’s the details:
One of the hostile factions you will meet in the huge underground city of Korrangar is composed of the Dark Elves. Dark Elves were previously Elves who had to live without any amber for multiple generations. Slowly, they have been turning into fanatic and bloodthirsty creatures. They became masters in Quartz fabrication, a new, much more dangerous, source of power. They are also experts at goblin hunting and the Exterminator Dark Elf is proof of that. He has honed his skills to perfection, and is able to flush out pesky creatures hiding in dark corners and hard-to-reach places with toxic bombs.
If there’s an even more dangerous place than Korrangar, it would be Wildoran, the city of goblin hunters. Wildoran inhabitants are stout people wearing heavy armour – the powerful Dwarves. Styx is unable to breach their impenetrable defence, so you must innovate and adapt to disable or avoid them. Every dwarf also has a supernatural sense of smell, and is able to slowly track Styx as he moves from cover to cover.
We are currently working on booking an appointment with the developers to check out Styx: Shards of Darkness at E3, so if there’s anything you want to know about the game be sure to let us know in the comments section.
