Styx stars in another spinoff stealth’em up that drops this week. All part of the same series that began with 2012’s Of Orcs and Men. Rather excitingly Shards of Darkness has a co op mode so I’m going to treat you all to a trailer for that feature.
Lucky PS4 players, looking at you Tess, got NieR: Automata last Friday but on the 17th us PC lot can join them. The title is a spinoff of the Drakengard series and is now firmly in the hack and slash action camp with Platinum at the helm. Put frankly the action looks incredible and inventive so if there is a compelling story alongside it then I’ll be very satisfied indeed.
Rocking an 89 on Metacritic with a ton of praise this could well be the sleeper hit of the year.
