Styx: Shards of Darkness
THE DEVIOUS DEVIL IS BACK
The centuries-old goblin assassin, Styx, returns in Styx: Shards of Darkness, the multi-layered stealth game with a bigger budget, bigger ideas, and a new engine: Unreal 4. Master of Shadows was a valiant exploration into the world of the green goblin thief, but Shards of Darkness will delve deeper into a complex narrative and fully realized world.
Following the fall of Akenash tower, an extraordinary matter has forced Styx out of hiding and into Korrangar, city of the Dark Elves. Supposedly impregnable, a diplomatic summit offers Styx a chance at slipping in unnoticed. His infiltration complete, Styx will stop at nothing to accomplish the robbery of a lifetime: stealing a scepter of immense and indomitable power.
Embark upon a stealthy adventure with new enemies, new environments, and a plethora of new mechanics refining the abilities of Styx — grappling around corners, climbing ropes, and using his trusty knife to zip line!
