 WWE 2K24 ECW PUNK PACK AVAILABLE NOW UNDISPUTED – Release Date & New Details Assassin’s Creed Shadows Gives Fans A Much Wanted Setting Square Enix Embraces Multiplatform Strategy for Major Games and Franchise Revivals Resident Evil 9 Release Window Rumors

Assassin’s Creed fans were previously informed about the upcoming release of Mirage, the next installment in the series. However, alongside that announcement, it was revealed that the RPG-style gameplay would make a comeback with a separate game codenamed “Red,” set in Feudal Japan. The open-world RPG approach was previously featured in Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla. Now, more details have emerged regarding Codename Red, including its official title: Assassin’s Creed Shadows.

Assassin’s Creed Shadows takes the series to the Feudal Japan era and the game starts in the year 1579. The game will also offer dual protagonists, Yasuke and Naoe. We see more on this in the trailer below and a look at the setting of Shadows. We also get the following information on the official website.

Live the intertwined stories of Naoe, an adept shinobi Assassin from Iga Province, and Yasuke, the powerful African samurai of historical legend. Against the backdrop of the turbulent late Sengoku period, this remarkable duo will discover their common destiny as they usher in a new era for Japan.

We also see that from the website we can play as a “shinobi or samurai”. Players will need to “master complementary playstyles of two fully realized protagonists, approach quests with whichever character you prefer”. The reason for this is both have their “own respective progression, stats, skills, and gear”. Eurogamer adds the following from the game’s director Charles Benoit.

“With our dual protagonists we have two fantasies: the samurai and the shinobi. We want the player to experience both and we can’t squeeze both into one character because the samurai and shinobi came from different social classes, so we can’t mix them together.
