Assassin’s Creed Shadows is going to give players more control over their story than ever before.

Possibly the best Assassin's Creed ever

I don’t think there’s ever been an Assassin’s Creed game more hyped up than Assassin’s Creed Shadows, and there’s a lot to be excited about.

Assassin’s Creed Shadows is the next open-world title for Ubisoft’s flagship franchise, though this time around the publisher is taking its fans to a time that’s been demanded as an Assassin’s Creed setting for years, Feudal Japan.

In Assassin’s Creed Shadows you’ll be taking control of not one, but two warriors, which hasn’t been done since Assassin’s Creed Syndicate in 2015. These characters are Naoe, a more traditional assassin who does her best work in the shadows, and Yasuke, a samurai who’ll introduce a completely different playstyle to the series.

During Summer Game Fest Ubisoft shed some light on how the story will follow these dual protagonists, saying while they’ll both get time to shine during the events of the game, they’re leaving it up to players as to who gets most of the spotlight.

Before certain story missions, Naoe and Yasuke will discuss how to best approach the threat or task that lies before them.

If Naoe is selected, you’ll wait for the cover of darkness and play the mission as a true assassin would, sticking to the shadows, only killing those you have to, and getting out (hopefully) undetected.

By selecting Yasuke, you’ll charge headfirst into the threat during broad daylight, hacking and slashing at an small army of foes and even charging through solid walls after you’ve had a quick murder spree.

According to Ubisoft, players will be able to go back and replay a mission with the other character, so if you want to experience everything the game has to offer, or just fancy seeing the other perspective, you’ve got the freedom to do so.

Assassin’s Creed Shadows will release for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5 and PC later this year on 15 November.
