In a short showcase, we saw the first trailer for the game – outside of the 2022 teaser – and gathered some new information.

Shadows will feature two playable protagonists, a samurai and a shinobi.

The samurai, Yasuke, is based on a real person of the same name who was the first black samurai, and the ninja is an original character called Naoe.

The showcase suggests they will have two very distinctive playstyles like Jacob and Evie from Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

Yasuke will be far more combat focused, whereas Naoe will rely on her stealth to get through the game.

Like other entries in the Assassin’s Creed series, it will feature real-life historical figures like Oda Nobunaga, and Fujibayashi Nagato who takes the role of Naoe’s father.

The trailer also revealed that there will be three versions available at launch including a Standard, Gold and Ultimate Editions, which will cost $69.99/£59.99, $109.99/£94.99 and $129.99/£114.99 respectively.

There will also be a season pass you can purchase separately that will provide you with future expansions, though this is included in the Gold and Ultimate Editions.

Assassin’s Creed Shadows will be released on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S on November 15, 2024.
