Assassin's Creed fans have been eagerly anticipating the announcement of a game that will transport the series to Japan during the era of samurais and ninja. However, the mood before the official presentation of such a title isn't entirely enthusiastic. Partly because, according to reliable sources, Assassin's Creed: Shadows will include microtransactions in the form of mini battle passes.

For the record, Tom Henderson's information is nothing new. Shadows is to be one of the titles included in Assassin's Creed: Infinity - a gigantic platform for the entire series, which will act as a kind of Animus, allowing us to learn about the stories of many Assassins.

The insider had previously reported on the so-called Projects, which are mini battle passes focusing on individual assassins. Henderson has now added that each of these miniature Battle Passes will contain 20 levels to unlock, with cosmetic items as the reward for completing them.

The journalist also gave the titles of the three currently known Assassin's Creed: Shadows Projects: The Hidden Network, The Last Ronin, and In The Shadows. He also brought up two extra story expansions that this series installment will get. We mentioned them in our previous news about the game title change, which we have so far known only under the codename AC: Red.

Just like three months ago, fans are still not very impressed with the Projects. Microtransactions always arouse the dislike of some players, but they particularly irritate internet users in the case of single-player games.

The official presentation of Assassin's Creed: Shadows will take place today. As part of this "announcement," the first full-fledged game trailer will be presented.
