Assassin’s Creed Shadows does not need an internet connection to run: ‘You will be able to play the entire journey offline’

Ubisoft has clarified that Assassin’s Creed Shadows, the upcoming tale of a samurai and a shinobi in Sengoku-era Japan, will not require an internet connection to run. You will need to be online in order to install the game, but once that’s done you can play offline as much as you want.

The confusion arose from Assassin’s Creed Shadows’ PlayStation Store page, which indicated that an internet connection would be required to play the game. That did not go over particularly well with some fans, first because Assassin’s Creed is a singleplayer game, and also because of Ubisoft’s penchant for pulling the plug on older games: The recent decision to shut down online support for The Crew, rendering it unplayable, helped spark the Stop Killing Games campaign that seeks to force game makers to ensure their products remain playable even after online support is ended.
