The first gameplay trailer for the upcoming Arkane Studios-developed title Dishonored has been revealed, courtesy of GTTV.

It's hard to describe all of the condensed action found within the footage, but it's easy to parse one fact: if this is what they've been planning over the years, we can finally forgive Arkane for not following up its criminally underrated Arx Fatalis.

Dishonored hits the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on October 9.
