Artwork Leaks Reveal Main Characters in Assassin’s Creed Shadows

A new artwork for Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Shadows has leaked online. As per the known leaker, these are the two main characters that will be available in the game, and players will get the opportunity to either choose a samurai or a shinobi.

This leak comes after a list of accidental disclosures by Ubisoft, which contained the game’s release date and Season Pass details before the official cinematic trailer premiere. The latest artwork offers just a small shimmer of view of the two protagonists. As per the revealed images by a known Rainbow Six Siege leaker, Ubisoft_Frax, confirming the speculations about the game’s two main characters, a male samurai and a female shinobi. The leaked artwork can be found below:

I remember when the first rumors surfaced last March about the dual protagonists in Assassin’s Creed Shadows. The male samurai is apparently an African refugee which is about to add something new to the game. Meanwhile, the female shinobi appears to have joined the Assassin Brotherhood. However, the iconic hidden blade is not to be seen on any of them.

Assassin’s Creed Shadows is expected to remain true to its open-world action RPG roots but will reportedly incorporate heavy stealth mechanics similar to Hitman and Splinter Cell. This seems to be a perfect fit for the Shinobi character, though I’m curious to see how combat will be balanced for both protagonists.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
