Set in feudal Japan in 1579, Assassin’s Creed Shadows takes you back to a classic setting during the late Sengoku period. You can choose from one of the two protagonists—Naoe, Fujibayashi Nagato’s daughter and a trained shinobi, and Yasuke, a samurai under Lord Oda Nobunaga—as you play through the history-rich campaign. 

Shadows looks like it preserves every bit of what makes Assassin’s Creed so popular, but with a modern twist. We’re sure you’re excited about its launch, so let’s get to the countdown.
