Microsoft and Ubisoft unveiled a stunning new trailer for Assassin's Creed Shadows during the Xbox Games Showcase. The game, originally teased as Codename Red, captured audience attention with its dynamic portrayal of dual protagonists, each embodying unique combat styles.

The trailer introduced Naoe, an agile character who expertly navigates rooftops, uses a grappling hook for swift movements between buildings, and employs stealth tactics to take down enemies. The focus then shifted to Yasuke, the legendary historical samurai known for his direct and powerful combat style. The contrast between their approaches highlights the diverse gameplay options available to players.

Assassin's Creed Shadows remains true to the series' open-world legacy while emphasizing a dual-protagonist narrative, enriching the story and gameplay depth. The game is set to launch on November 15 on both console and PC.
