Styx: Shards of Darkness is a sequel to the well-received TPP stealth game Styx: Master of Shadows. The protagonist of Styx: Shards of Darkness is the eponymous goblin assassin, known from another Cyanide game, the RPG Of Orcs and Men. After the fall of the Akenash tower, hiding the source of precious amber, new circumstances force Styx to infiltrate the city of Körangar, the stronghold of the Dark Elves. It turns out that the secretive diplomatic meeting of the Elves and the Dwarves is just a cover for a dangerous conspiracy and an alliance of the goblin-hating races.
Mechanics-wise, Styx: Shards of Darkness does not differ much from its predecessor. It's still a TPP action game, focusing on the stealth aspect and quiet methods of eliminating possible foes. However, the game's elements have been expanded. The world of Styx: Shards of Darkness is larger, and the protagonist can now use a wide range of new abilities, such as the ability to jump from one corner of a room to another, climb up ropes or us a knife to move around via zip-lines.
