Cyanide and Focus Home Interactive have released a free demo of Styx: Shards of Darkness today on Steam. Also, for those who want to purchase the game, now it’s a great time to do so, as Styx: Shards of Darkness is with 40% off.
During the free demo, the players can take a look and experience the tutorial level in Thoben the City of Thieves. You as a player will have the role of the Goblin, Styx. Your mission is to sneak, steal and eliminate guards, Elves and Dwarves, by using daggers, knives, and traps.
Styx can grow even stronger by crafting and creating tools and daggers, which can be used to distract and eliminate enemies. But be careful, you’ll have only two choices. Stay undetected by eliminating one guard, on kill them all and find a way out. Do you have what it takes to be one of the best stealth assassins?
If you are asking yourself where does the power of Styx comes from, well I’ve got the answer for you. It’s from the magical Amber, which allows him to clone himself, become invisible and get the amber vision. You can use all of these abilities to get the Quartz back!
At the end of the free demo, the players can upgrade to the full version, together with their progress and saves during the demo.
