Well, wonder no more – we’ve got the definitive answer.

Will AC Shadows be available on Steam?

Assassin’s Creed Shadows will not be available on Steam. This is due to Ubisoft’s partnership with Epic Games. Instead, you can purchase AC Shadows on the Epic Games Store or via Ubisoft Connect.

It’s not outside the realm of possibility that Assassin’s Creed Shadows will appear on Steam eventually. Older Assassin’s Creed titles such as Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla are all available on the platform. However, we’re almost certain we’ll see AC Mirage on Steam before an AC Shadows Steam version comes to fruition.

Thankfully, no matter which digital storefront you plan to purchase AC Shadows from, we have confirmation from Ubisoft concerning the AC Shadows online connection requirements. This comes after heavy speculation that an internet connection is mandatory to play the RPG game – though it goes without saying that it’s a requirement to download it.

Now that you’re all caught up the AC Shadows Steam version, limber up for the AC Shadows launch date with the best stealth games. If you just can’t tear yourself away from Valve’s platform, we’ve got dates for all the biggest Steam sales and the best Steam Deck games to add to your wishlist.
