I wonder if it'll have the historic scenes of Nobunaga ordering Yasuke to strip and take a bath to confirm he wasn't painted that color.

I find it a little funny they decided to reveal the game a day before Ghost of Tsushima releases on PC.

I've seen rumblings that this game on PS5 will require an internet connection to complete installation from the disc; possibly also to play. Ubisoft will not get my money if this is the case!

How else would we know it's a AAAA game, without a feature like that?

Can we cancel all the upcoming assassins creed until we have a new engine that surpasses what unity was supposed to be? Lol some new and vastly different from the Zelda style RPG. Lol

I’m sorry but assassins creed black flag looks better than current Zelda. Not a better game but definitely a better looking game.

The-VG-shamman2d ago

Dude anyone who’s been playing assassins creed long enough knows that the series reset after origins came out. I love black flag, one of my favorite games in the series. Origins changed the entire engine and relied on bigger scale and rpg elements. I’m not sure how you thought black flag was an rpg? As only the games after origin have the rpg elements. With hit damage point system, gear ect. What we need is a game engine that surpasses ac unitys vision. Overhaul parkour system and solid combat mechanism with little to no bugs or glitches. The climbing on recent AC games are as lame as breath of the wild lol. Same with the combat.

@ VG shaman

I didn’t say it was an rpg I said that graphically it looked better than Zelda which was the point of the article. It was on graphics not genre.

No Matter How Good Assassin's Creed Shadows Looks, I Can't Trust Ubisoft

Assassin's Creed Shadows' dual protagonists and Japanese setting may seem fascinating but there's a high chance Ubisoft will ruin it all.

You simply just wait for sales on ubi games. They tend to drop quick and especially heavily after half a year or so.

Appreciate the comment, but that's hardly the point this article's trying to make.

Looks like another AC game to me(modern AC) but people have been asking for a japanese setting for awhile so to me it makes sense why some people are more excited for this one. I'm not gonna get baited by ubisoft mediocre gameplay and trash ass stories that they have been creating for the past decade. They do know how to make good looking worlds tho so they got that going for them.

Yea ... the current Ubi gets trashed for the repetitive gameplay loops and odd live service/monetization choices but ....
Their tech department is nothing to scoff about ...
Many people ignored their latest Avatar game as a FarCry clone but it had some uniqueness and most of all Massive Entertainment really pushed the visuals with their latest version of the Snowdrop engine.
I just wish they alternate release between older architecture and modern architecture with their IPs like an old school stealth-focused AC between two AC RPGs or old school Ghost Recon after the last two massive open world GRs ... etc

-Foxtrot1d 5h ago

I think many people ignored Avatar because it was Avatar to be honest, the films are box office successes but apart from the visuals and technology they are nothing special.

If it was a new IP I'd have been more interested.

I dont like cutscene trailers, the only cutscene trailers from companies I trust are rockstar, insomniac, Santa Monica, guerilla, because they even make the gameplay smooth like cutscenes, ubisoft has the budget to.make one of the best looking games that take advantage of this gen hardware but they still hold back some, avatar looks pretty af playing but you can tell it could use some smoothing out more, it's still fun, still tho ubi should step it up there's little to no competition coming out in the open world genre cause most of everybody wana copy souls combat then slap free roam on it, that's one thing I'm atleast glad about ubi they're not copying the souls formula that there only works for fromsoftware games, when gta 6 laugh rockstar will most likely show how open world should be done once again🤦🏾 it's always up to rockstar even tho they been on bs lol

i will always love cgi trailers. doesnt matter if games are good, cgi trailers or openings/endings are usually awesome just visually

CantThinkOfAUsername1d 6h ago

I do too, but there's hardly any interesting CGI trailers nowadays. Even that has taken a hit in quality. Compare the recent AC Shadows trailer to For Honor or The Division. It's mid at best.

RaidenBlack1d 6h ago (Edited 1d 6h ago )

I hate launch CG trailers ... Becoz by the time of launch, the suspense's there no more
And I hate lazy CG teasers/hype trailers.
CG trailers should only be used for reveal, if CG is at all planned i.e , IMO ... and shouldn't be some random stuff but some hype inducing and at same time somewhat true to the end product.
Blizzard kind of nails the CG trailers.

Chard1d 9h ago

Do these games still have the modern day office stuff?

anast1d 9h ago

Probably a bit, but not as much as the older ones. They cut way back on that stuff.

anast1d 9h ago

UBI soft games are best bought around $25 for the gold edition.

VincentVanBro1d 6h ago

Best to not waste time on them at all.

Ninver19h ago

Ps plus release is the best way to play them
