Assassin’s Creed Shadows is the New Assassin’s Creed Game

A new Assassin’s Creed game which was previously called Code Name Red has been announced and it is called Assassin’s Creed Shadows. It has been in the work for a long time and takes players on a journey across feudal Japan.

Released alongside a flashy trailer, the Japanese setting has been confirmed. There are two playable protagonists with each having a different playstyle. One is a big heavy samurai which is loosely based on a historical figure called Yasuke. Another is a Japanese woman who is a Shinobi character. I just can’t seem to shake off that Ghost of Tsushima vibe. Different opinions are floating around and some of these comments are pretty racist surrounding Yasuke.

There are lingering questions of whether the Assassin’s Creed is back in feudal Japan or is it a new experiment or some players might even be tired of playing the same game over and over. There are also players who only care about whether Assassin’s Creed Shadows will be good or not myself included.

It will be different than the older Assassin’s Creed games and Mirage. Assassin’s Creed Shadows will follow in the footsteps of Assassin’s Creed Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla. It will be a big open-world map and it has also been stated that its size will be equal to that of Assassin’s Creed Origins. It is way smaller than the massive world of Odyssey.

The large map of Assassin’s Creed Shadows won’t exhaust you but what we need is quality instead of quantity.  I will take a smaller better map any day over a larger generic map.

Pay More Get More

There are some predatory practices at play. Developers are taking preorders even though the gameplay is not shown yet. The prices of Assassin’s Creed Shadows range from a base game that costs $70 to 130 ultimate addition that grants you pre-order bonuses, early access, and a Season Pass. The $130 version grants you even more content.

After all that UBI Soft released a statement that you won’t need to be always online to play the game. I thought that it was standard practice and a known fact! But anyway. A single-player game with Season Pass stuff is wild and we have been seeing more and more of it.
