‘ Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’ will have players control both male and female versions of Eivor.
The greatly anticipated for Ubisoft title will let gamers to use both versions of the main character by default, and narrative director Darby McDevitt explained the change as “essential to the story”.
Although he didn’t want to “spoil” the video game by elaborating, he did add on Twitter: “It enhances the story, IMO, and it doesn’t happen frequently.
“It always makes sense when the switch occurs.”
Although players will be able to choose to completely utilize either male or female Eivor at any point without avoiding story content, Darby exposed you will get “fewer clues” about why the modifications might be occurring.
When the video game kicks off, you’ll get to pick to play entirely as male, female or to utilize the default ‘Let the Animus decide’ feature.
Darby discussed on Twitter: “It means ‘Let the Animus decide’ is canon.
“And both characters will appear at various points when you choose this option. So both are canon…
“The Animus will represent the stronger FEMALE or MALE memory-stream, depending on its current strength. You may choose another option at any time.”
