Assassin’s Creed Shadows Is Coming Out In November, And Here’s What We Know

Assassin's Creed Shadows

Earlier this week, Ubisoft announced the official title of the next Assassin’s Creed game, Assassin’s Creed Shadows. Last night, Ubisoft premiered the first official trailer of the game, which is set in 16th-century Japan.

Here’s the Official World Premiere trailer:

The game will be released on November 15, 2024, on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Mac, with 3-day early access to players who subscribe to Ubisoft+ or purchase the Gold Edition, Ultimate Edition (digital), or Collector’s Edition.

Players will experience the intertwined stories of Naoe, an adept shinobi Assassin from the Iga Province, and Yasuke, the powerful samurai of historical legend. Discover their personal stories, meet pivotal historical figures, and shape the duo’s common destiny as they usher in a new era for Japan.

As Naoe and Yasuke, players can master two complementary playstyles, with each character featuring their own progression paths, skills, weapon options, and stats. Whether they embrace Naoe’s stealth skills or Yasuke’s combat prowess, players will have plenty of ways to approach objectives. With Naoe, they will experience refined infiltration mechanics, using light, noise, shadows, and changing surroundings to avoid detection. With Yasuke, they will be able to take on larger groups of enemies with brutal precision.

Assassin’s Creed Shadows features a vast open world with a variety of landscapes which evolve through the weather and seasons. Fuedal Japan comes to life with spectacular castle towns and bustling ports to peaceful shrines and pastoral landscapes. Players will be able to recruit allies with highly specialised skills and abilities and even build a base with decorations and accessories as a place to call home.

More gameplay details will be shown next month.
