The long-awaited Japanese installment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, Assassin’s Creed Shadows, will be released worldwide on November 15. The game is available on Ubisoft+, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series Players who subscribe to Ubisoft+ or purchase the Gold or Ultimate Edition can play the game three days early on November 12.

Led by Ubisoft Québec (Assassin’s Creed Odyssey), Assassin’s Creed Shadows immerses players in 16th century Japan. The country is headed on a brutal path towards unification, increasing unrest as new coalitions and corrupt foreign influences infiltrate the country.

Players will discover the intertwined stories of Naoe, a skilled shinobi assassin from Iga Province, and Yasuke, the mighty samurai of historical legend. Discover their personal stories, meet key figures from history, and shape the duo’s shared destiny as they usher in a new era for Japan.

As Naoe and Yasuke, players master two complementary playstyles, with each character having their own progression paths, skills, weapon options and stats. Whether players choose Naoe’s stealth skills or Yasuke’s combat skills, they have plenty of ways to approach objectives. With Naoe, players experience sophisticated infiltration mechanics by using light, sound, shadows and changing environments to avoid enemy detection. With Yasuke you take on larger groups of enemies with brutal precision.

The game lets players explore a vast open world with a variety of landscapes that evolve with the weather and seasons. From spectacular castle towns and bustling ports to peaceful shrines and pastoral landscapes, feudal Japan comes to life with unprecedented dynamism, built from the ground up with the latest version of the Anvil engine and the power of new-gen consoles.

In this troubled period, information is key and this forms the core of the new exploration mechanisms. Players build their own spy network to open up new areas and hunt down targets. Allies with highly specialized skills are recruited to assist during missions. By creating their own customizable shelter, players expand their network and train their new crew. From building and furnishing to decorations and accessories, this base is a unique place that players will truly call home.

The standard edition of the game is available here. In addition, fans who place a pre-order for Assassin’s Creed Shadows will receive an extra quest. The Gold, Ultimate and Collector’s Editions of Assassin’s Creed Shadows have also been announced:

The Gold Edition includes the base game, the Season Pass (including a bonus quest with additional unlockable content and two upcoming expansions) and 3 days early access to the game.

The Ultimate Edition includes the base game, the Season Pass, the Ultimate Pack and 3 days early access to the game. The Ultimate Pack includes 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 includes the base game, Season Pass, Ultimate Pack, physical content and 3 days early access to the game.
