Styx: Shards of Darkness Shows Us How a Goblin is Made

It’s time for an inside-the-goblin look at the making of Styx: Shards of Darkness, the sequel to stealth sleeper hit Styx: Master of Shadows!

Cyanide Studio’s latest making-of vidoc spends a good five minutes putting front and center Styx’s signature snarky attitude and humor while also showcasing the development team’s heightened ambition for elevating every aspect of gameplay and storytelling from the previous game. From afar, without getting hands on with the game yet, it really is impressive to see just how much Styx appears to have evolved and matured.

Don’t let the game sneak up on you when it slinks out of the shadows and onto PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on March 14th. Be sure to check out our interview with Cyanide Studio about the game from last year.
