Ubisoft Announces Assassin’s Creed Shadows

Ubisoft has just announced the official name of the next game in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, which will be Assassin’s Creed Shadows. The complete announcement of the game, including a cinematic trailer, will take place on Wednesday, May 15, 2024, on Ubisoft’s official channel.

A New Assassin’s Creed Set In Japan

From today until the revelation event, players can follow a countdown on Assassin’s Creed’s social media. Fans will also be challenged to solve the “Hourglass” riddle, and those who complete it will receive rewards. All of this will be revealed on the day of the official announcement.

The next installment of Ubisoft’s flagship saga will feature an open world with elements of action and adventure, as confirmed by the game’s description, which includes two conceptual arts, a countdown to its first trailer, and a button to add it to the player’s wish list, implying receiving news via email.

It’s worth noting that Assassin’s Creed Shadows was one of the rumored names in recent weeks, suggesting that much of the information officially provided in recent weeks would be true. If so, the installment that will take the assassins to Japan will present a combat system similar to Valhalla, with an emphasis on stealth in the style of Splinter Cell. Its two protagonists would be Yasuke, an African samurai, and Naoe, with intertwined stories amid the feudal era.

Assassin’s Creed Shadows Won’t Come to PS4 & Xbox One

Historically, Ubisoft is one of the companies that extends its releases the most after the arrival of new generation consoles, aiming to cover as much market as possible. Last year, Assassin’s Creed Mirage also debuted on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, so the expectation is on what will happen with this year’s release, but there’s no good news.

Today, Ubisoft kicked off the promotional campaign for Assassin’s Creed Shadows, the new installment of the franchise inspired by Feudal Japan, and whose first teaser will be shown on Wednesday, May 15. By revealing some official details, the game’s official site on Ubisoft’s digital store mentioned that it would be available on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and PS4, but not Xbox One, so it was considered strange that the French company skipped Microsoft’s past generation console.

According to previous reports, Assassin’s Creed Shadows will mean a significant graphical leap for Ubisoft’s franchise, making it the first game in the IP to be considered current generation, a reason that would have sealed the fate of a possible version for past generation consoles.

Preceding the Ubisoft Forward

The unveiling of Assassin’s Creed Shadows will take place just before the Ubisoft Forward event, which the company will hold on June 10 at a specific time. It will be then when the gameplay of the game will be presented, according to another recent rumor. Obviously, the live stream will also have time to present new details of Star Wars: Outlaws, one of the biggest releases of the remaining year.

What is unknown is whether Assassin’s Creed Infinity, the hub promising to gather the upcoming games of the saga and which has been rumored to be some sort of subscription, will be discussed.
