Don’t worry, Assassin’s Creed Shadows is playable offline in its entirety, even if you’ll need an internet connection to install it

Physical copies ofAssassin’s Creed Shadows will require you you to be connected to the interent in order to install the game, but you’ll be fine to play the game offline once that’s done, Ubisoft has confirmed.

Following the game’s reveal yesterday, it’d been spotted that boxed retail copies of Shadows came bearing the message that a net connection would be required to install the game.
