Assassin’s Creed Shadows revealed along with cinematic trailer

The long-awaited samurai-inspired Assassin’s Creed title, previously codenamed Assassin’s Creed Red, has now been officially revealed as Assassin’s Creed Shadows.

With the recent success of games like Ghost of Tsushima and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, we do not doubt that the ceiling for this new Assassin’s Creed entry is certainly high.

Check out the new cinematic trailer for yourself below:

We also know that the game will focus on two protagonists, Naoe, an adept shinobi Assassin from Iga Province, and Yasuke, the powerful African samurai legend. Alongside the premiere trailer, we also got a fresh rundown trailer, focusing on these two new characters.

Assassin’s Creed Shadows will launch on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and Windows PC on the 15th of November, 2024. Pre-orders are now available via Ubisoft’s official website.

Stay tuned for the latest Assassin’s Creed news as it breaks.
