Assassin's Creed Shadows, the new installment of Ubisoft's popular franchise, is set to release on November 15, 2024. This information came to light due to an error in the description of the game's debut cinematic trailer in Italian. Ubisoft seemingly disclosed the release date by mistake, which was spotted by a user on the social network X (formerly Twitter).

In addition to the release date, a possible snippet of the Assassin's Creed Shadows trailer has also surfaced online. The short video clip offers a glimpse of the breathtaking landscapes of Japan, where the new game is known to be set.

Ubisoft dataminer Ubisoft_Frax, known for leaking information about Ubisoft projects, shared details about the monetization in Assassin's Creed Shadows. According to their data, the game will feature a $40 seasonal pass that grants access to two major expansions and other bonuses. Additionally, Ubisoft plans to introduce a premium currency called Helix, which can be purchased with real money. The exchange rates for Helix are as follows:

  • 500 coins: $5 or €5;
  • 1050 coins: $10 or €10;
  • 2300 coins: $20 or €20;
  • 4200 coins: $35 or €35;
  • 6600 coins: $50 or €50.

Helix will likely be used to purchase cosmetic items, experience boosters, and other in-game advantages.

Ubisoft will officially unveil the debut cinematic trailer for Assassin's Creed Shadows on May 15. The video will be published on the company's YouTube channel, the link for which is provided below:

The official release date in November will be confirmed or refuted in the near future. Users are already actively discussing potential scenarios and new features in the upcoming game. One of the main questions remains how Japanese culture and history will be implemented, and how deeply the developers will delve into this period. Fans are hoping for authenticity and attention to detail, which have traditionally distinguished the Assassin's Creed series.
