Ubisoft has responded to the concerns raised by the PlayStation Store's indication that Assassin's Creed Shadows necessitates online gameplay, stating that an internet connection is not always mandatory. The company confirmed that gamers could enjoy the open-world game offline. However, an online connection is required for the initial installation, posing a significant concern for those purchasing physical copies; functionality might be compromised if servers are down. Ubisoft has yet to address this issue directly but promises further updates in the future.

Set to release globally on November 15th, Assassin's Creed Shadows will be available on Xbox Series X/S, PS5, and PC. Additional details about the game's Gold and Ultimate Editions were also shared. These editions provide gamers three days of early access, a Season Pass, and two expansions alongside a bonus quest. Furthermore, insights from a recent cinematic trailer introducing the backdrop and main characters, Naoe and Yasuke, were highlighted.
