Assassin’s Creed Shadows Revealed With Stunning Trailer And November Release Date

Japan here we come

Ubisoft has officially revealed Assassin’s Creed Shadows, the newest title in the Assassin’s Creed series set to hit PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC on November 15, 2024.

Set in an open world 16th-century Japan during a period of unrest as the country heads towards unification, the stories of Naoe, a shinobi Assassin, and Yasuke, the powerful Black samurai of historical legend, come together as they endeavour to shape the country’s future. Players will be able to play as either character, each with their own distinct playstyle – Naoe is an agile stabby assassin by trade, while Yasuke deals in brute strength and combat prowess.

After being revealed as Project Red in 2022, Shadows sees Assassin’s Creed finally head to one of the most-requested settings in feudal Japan. The trailer, while stunning, doesn’t show any gameplay, which I would expect sometime during Summers Games Fest.

Ubisoft also revealed the various editions for Shadows, which you can find below:

  • The Gold Edition will include the base game, the Season Pass (including a bonus quest with additional unlockable content as well as two upcoming expansions) and 3 days early access to the game.
  • The Ultimate Edition will include the base game, the Season Pass, the Ultimate Pack and 3 days early access to the game. The Ultimate Pack will contain the Sekiryu Character Pack (Naoe and Yasuke outfit and weapon, trinket and mount), the Sekiryu Hideout Pack, 5 Skill points and a Red and black photo mode filter.
  • The Collector’s Edition will include the base game, the Season Pass, the Ultimate Pack, physical content and 3 days early access to the game. The physical content will be a Steelbook, the World map, Naoe & Yasuke Figurine, life-size Naoe’s Katana Tsuba, a Wall Creed Scroll, an 84 pages collector’s artbook and 2 sumi-e lithographs.
