Assassin’s Creed Shadows Takes Players to Feudal Japan in Highly Anticipated Release

Published

on

Ubisoft has officially unveiled Assassin's Creed Shadows, the new highly anticipated game that will transport players to feudal Japan, fulfilling fans’ long-held wish for this setting. Codenamed Red during development, Shadows promises a detailed recreation of Japan in 1579, complete with samurai, shinobi, Portuguese merchants, and Jesuit missionaries.

The setting of Shadows is during the Azuchi-Momoyama period, a transitional era following the Sengoku period and leading up to the peaceful Edo era, making it a pivotal moment in history for the samurai warriors. Players will take on the role of historic figure Yasuke, a Black samurai with a unique heritage that ties into the era’s prominent figures such as Oda Nobunaga and the Portuguese.

Joining Yasuke in this immersive tale is Naoe, a nimble and stealthy shinobi, providing a dual protagonist experience similar to Assassin’s Creed Syndicate but with more distinct character traits. Ubisoft aims to bring back the stealth roots of the franchise through Naoe, enhancing the assassination and hidden blade mechanics with modern twist.

Assassin’s Creed Shadows introduces a dynamic lighting system where players can manipulate light sources to hide or eliminate threats. This modern approach to stealth is complemented by parkour mechanics and a physics-based grappling hook for enhanced mobility.

Combat in Shadows is designed for spectacle, with destructible items and realistic weapon damage, leading to intense Kurosawa-like duels. Players can choose between stealth or combat, utilizing the unique abilities of Yasuke and Naoe to navigate through a living, reactive world influenced by dynamic seasons.

The game map covers central Japan with meticulously recreated castles as key locations, providing immersive settings for the adventure. Assassin’s Creed Shadows is set to launch on various platforms including PlayStation 5, Amazon Luna, and Xbox Series X on November 15, offering a new chapter in the beloved franchise.
