Styx: Shards of Darkness is only a couple of weeks away, and it’s latest trailer shows off the co-op side of it. What can I say? It’s sleek. It’s funny. There’s even a Buzz Lightyear reference! Basically the game looks amazing, and looks like it will be a great sequel to 2014’s Styx: Master of Shadows.
The trailer shows in great detail the ways you can launch simultaneous strikes against unsuspecting foes. Including the ways in which you can lay in wait, and the ways you can utilize the environment to take down enemies.
The co-op in game is a drop-in system through invite with Focus Home Interactive stating:
“At any time during your adventure, you are able to invite a friend to join your current session to sneak around with you for an alternative stealth experience. Two players opens up many more opportunities for clearing a level and reaching the objectives, but also doubles the risk of being spotted. Assassination partners must co-ordinate carefully in order to succeed!
“Work together to create elaborate distractions, unleash dastardly synchronized assassinations, and run circles around larger enemies – every level and mission is playable in coop and will open a new array of gameplay possibilities.”
