Like its predecessor, Styx will be able to clone himself and to lay traps for his enemies, and will also be able to temporarily turn invisible. The player will have the option of engaging enemies or avoiding them. Ropes and grappling hooks can be used to reach high areas. There will also be a multiplayer co-op mode, with the second player controlling one of Styx's clones.
