Assassin’s Creed Shadows Revealed With 4 Minutes Of Bloody Action

Assassin’s Creed Shadows is the next big open-world RPG from Ubisoft. It sports dual protagonists, a shinobi and a samurai, and it looks incredible so far. The next game in the blockbuster stealth series arrives on November 15 and based on its first trailer, it seems like exactly what fans have been dreaming of ever since they first learned the latest sequel would be set in Japan.

A first look at the game via a cinematic trailer showed a mysterious woman named Naoe whose village is burnt down and a man in samurai armor named Yasuke who has seemingly been involved in the carnage. “We are the shadows that serve the light,” they say as they work together through stealth and head-on combat to bring down the forces responsible for sowing war and misery.

While it was sometimes easy to feel overloaded between the series’ increasing bloat and semi-annualization, it’s now been four years since the last major Assassin’s Creed game, and I, for one, am hungry to dig in.

Some of the above details about the game began leaking earlier this week from various store listings. Other clues were teased in a mini-marketing ARG that had fans deciphering images for numerical clues that eventually led them to the number “1579,” the year Yasuke, the first Black samurai, is believed to have arrived in Japan.

Here’s the developers talking about Yasuke and Naoe and how players will follow their stories in the game:
