A launch trailer for Styx: Master of Shadows, a stealth game where you take control of an orc-looking protagonist, just hit the Internet. And it invites you to "become the master of infiltration."

Master of Shadows is a stealth game where you scale walls and hide from enemies as a cloaked goblin--slaying all who are foolish enough to get in your path.

Developed by Cyanide Studios, Master of Shadows can be called a fantasy interpretation of Assassin's Creed; you will take control of a mythical creature as you scale walls and kill unsuspecting enemies.

You will also cloak yourself and in shadow and hide behind walls in order to remain unnoticed by potential foes.

Styx, the game's protagonist, will have many different abilities in the game.

"Styx is also able to conjure up shriveled, flaking clones of himself, which can then be remote-piloted while he stays out of sight," Total Xbox reports, "You might, for example order a clone to waylay and bully a weaker for so that you can sneak past.

Or just blow the clone up, flooding the area with deadly gas. Elegance has no place in the goblin worldview--effectiveness is all"

Styx: Master of Shadows will be available for download on October 7 for the PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One. For more about the game, go to its official website here.
