Assassin's Creed Valhalla will let you swap between the male and female version of protagonist Eivor at any point in the game, Ubisoft has confirmed with Stevivor.
That's pretty interesting. I also heard the executions are different based on which version you play of the main character.
Just grow some balls Ubisoft and stick to one gender, regardless what it is so you can fully develop and flesh them out while making the overall story more personal to them.
Maybe they just want to change it up a bit because Assassin's Creed is getting kind of stale to be honest...
So they brought back a feature from Syndicate....? The most stale AC game
A change of character skin and voice changes essentially nothing. It literally has no impact on gameplay or the story much.
Players: leave gender politics out of it! Ubisoft: here's a story having nothing to do with gender, where you can play male or female Players: c'mon, stick to one gender, and write a story reflecting that gender because that makes it better! No winning here. None.
So I can identify as what I want depending on what I feel like on that particular day (sarcasm)
That’s fine by me as long as you keep it too them. I like to get into the story and development of characters , that’a why the idea of anyone, anytime watch dogs 3 does not at all interest me at all.
Your team is the character in Watchdog 3.
I might have to wait and see more about watch dogs 3 then. I did enjoy my time with the first 2. But I had the impression that 3 was going to be more like Ubisofts Zombi . Where once dead , dead move on to someone else. That personally is not for me .
Maybe they use snail DNA in the animus now. That would explain the sex change at will.
I'm not against a female lead. However, this approach of "let player swap between male or female lead at will" make most of the story & dialogue very bland. Just compare between AC: Origin & Odyssey. A lot of the missions & their dialogue in Odyssey felt very generic & bland, since the writes needed to accommodate the mission for both male & female charter. In Origin, the writer(s) could wrote the mission with some specific responses & emotions from a male & female perspective.
That's a good point.
First genderfluid protagonist in a AAA game.
I think this will affect my willing suspension of disbelief, in a bad way. I expect story & immersion to be the 1st victims, we’ll see.
Then don't switch? It's your story, don't let the options destroy it.
Gee, wonder where I seen this before oh yeah Assassin's Creed Syndicate, again this new game is garbo!
They both look the same. No matter if you chose female, you're still just a man with a female voice XD
Cool feature. I’ll most likely be sticking with male Eivor but more options are always welcome and great for those that want it.
Nice. I want a male for fighting and a female for the sex scenes.
I actually had fun playing Odyssey as Casandra Valhalla I am pretty sure I'll play as a female as well. Even in AC Syndicate I always went as Evie.
