Assassin's Creed Shadows trailer just sent our hype into overdrive

Assassin’s emerge from the shadows

Finally, after months of speculation, the highly anticipated Assassin’s Creed Shadows cinematic trailer has been revealed and has sent the hype train into overdrive.

Earlier this week, Ubisoft dropped the first teaser for Assassin’s Creed Shadows promising the debut of its first trailer and now that time has arrived. What’s more, a previous leak regarding its release date has proven to be true with Assassin’s Creed Shadows dropping on 15 November 2024.

Check out the debut Assassin’s Creed Shadows trailer below!

Assassin’s Creed Shadows will take place in feudal Japan and will feature the two previously rumoured playable protagonists, now confirmed to be a female shinobi named Naoe and the male samurai, Yasuke. Ubisoft vice president executive producer Marc-Alexis Côté promised a “very powerful shinobi fantasy” and judging by its action-packed trailer, he delivered on that word.

The Assassin’s Creed Shadows cinematic trailer began with a scared man running through the woods from a samurai who was later revealed to be the male protagonist, Yasuke. His tale appears to be one of redemption against his formula samurai clan that waged war against the villagers of Japan.

We also saw the female shinobi protagonist (Naoe) in action, whose tale is one of revenge against the samurai warriors who had slain her family and the village that she once called home. Now, Yasuke and Naoe put their differences aside to fight the good fight.

While purely cinematic, the trailer helped set the tone of what we can expect from Assassin’s Creed Shadows such as high-octane action, as well as stealth and espionage gameplay. What’s more, the trailer may have teased the return of naval combat.

Assassin’s Creed Shadows is a new-gen-only title and will be released on 15 November 2024 for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Hopefully, Ubisoft will reveal its first gameplay trailer in the coming weeks. The Ubisoft Forward is due to be held on 10 June.
