Assassin’s Creed Shadows trailer reveals first look at dual protagonists

Ubisoft has revealed a first proper look at Assassin’s Creed Shadows, and detailed the game’s dual protagonists. Both characters appear front and centre in the game’s new cinematic trailer (gameplay will follow next month, Ubisoft says) and on the game’s cover, with each offering a markedly different play style.

Today’s trailer opens on Naoe, a female shinobi, as she crosses paths with Yasuke, the historical figure depicted here as a powerful samurai. Initially, it seems, the two are adversaries – but the pair soon find common ground. By the end of the trailer, Naoe is wearing the Assassin’s Creed series’ iconic Hidden Blade weapon – and both appear to be at least allied with the Assassins.

For those catching up, or who’ve avoided the leaks, Assassin’s Creed Shadows will launch on 15th November for PC (via the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Game Store) Mac, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, with three days early access for those with Ubisoft+ or who buy a pricier collector’s edition. Development is led by Ubisoft Quebec, the team behind 2015’s Syndicate and 2018’s Odyssey, with no less than 15 other Ubisoft studios in support roles, including Japanese teams in Osaka and Tokyo.
