Assassin’s Creed Shadows Reveal Trailer Released, Release Date Confirmed

Assassin's Creed Shadows Trailer

Ubisoft has released the first trailer for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed: Shadows. In addition to the trailer, the studio also confirmed that the game will launch on November 15.

The trailer, which you can watch below, gives a first look at the game’s two protagonists — Naoe and Yasuke.

“In Assassin’s Creed Shadows, you will live the intertwined stories of Naoe, an adept shinobi Assassin from Iga Province, and Yasuke, the powerful African samurai of historical legend,” the game’s description reads. “Against the backdrop of the turbulent late Sengoku period, this remarkable duo will discover their common destiny as they usher in a new era for Japan.

“From chaos to purpose, from darkness to light. A new Creed rises over Japan.”

The first deep dive into Assassin’s Creed: Shadows gameplay is expected at Ubisoft Forward on June 10. There will also be hands-on opportunities at Summer Games Fest with an embargo lifting on June 12.

When it releases, Assassin’s Creed: Shadows will be available on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC. It’ll be the first game in a decade to not release on Xbox One or PlayStation 4.

If you pre-order the Gold or Ultimate Edition of the game — or are a member of Ubisoft+ — you can get three days early access starting November 12.
