Connecting to Host #43: Styx: Shards of Darkness

The latest episode of Connecting to Host is now available: Styx: Shards of Darkness.

John and Ben grab their daggers and start vomiting over food as they get sneaky in the guise of vicious little goblins in Styx: Shards of Darkness. Styx: Shards of Darkness is the second game in the Styx series and it gives you a chance to sneak through huge open environments in a fantasy setting with a friend, while stealing important objectives and assassinating anyone who gets in your way.

Styx: Shards of Darkness feels like a hydrid of Hitman, Thief and Assassin’s Creed in a classic fantasy setting. The game sees you sneaking through streets and climbing around buildings with a third-person camera. Listen to our latest episode to find out more about how Styx plays with a friend.

Styx: Shards of darkness was developed by Cyanide Studio in France and published by Focus Home Interactive. It is available for download on PC, PS4 and Xbox One and is available for around €40, depending on the platform you purchase on. Originally released in March, 2017 - Styx: Shards of Darkness can often be found on sale on Steam or the Humble Store.
