    I can't choose a character between FEMALE Eivor, MALE Eivor, or ANIMUS choose. I've tried checking my mouse and have tried using a joy stick. But still can't choose.


  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    Hello everyone!

    I've gone through the forum and merged all threads regarding this issue into one megathread. In future, if you encounter this issue, please post it within this thread so all the information is in one place.

    Thank you for all of your updates, and for sharing workarounds within the forums with your fellow players. It's been great to see you all help one-another 😊 The development team has been made aware of this issue and this has been marked as resolved in Title Update 1.04.

    If you still encounter this issue in-game, we would recommend applying the following workaround:

    Go to Options -> Interface -> Set Hold Alternative option to OFF

    You should be able to select which gender you would like to play as now.

    Please don't hesitate to update this thread if you have any further questions or concerns ☺

    I’m playing on Xbox. I’m stuck on the gender select screen, I try and hold the A button or tap it or anything on a selection but it won’t let me past the screen. I don’t know what to do from here I’ve been stuck here for 2 hours, restarting my console and starting new games.

    Sorry to hear you have experienced this, if possible could you confirm whether you are experiencing any other issues with input options in game.? Also, if possible would you be able to capture a short video clip showing this selection not completing when holding the button in game.? Lastly, if possible could I suggest attempting a different game pad to rule out this being a factor causing this issue.

    Same problem on the PC, I confirmed that left click does indeed work inside AC:V, now trying with a Controller. Will edit post if it works.

    Edit: Does not work with controller either, I can even see the game registering my clicks with the controller but they appear to do nothing. Will upload a clip soon

    I’ve tried a different controller, I’ve tried a friends Xbox who is currently playing it on his profile, then he switched to mine and was stuck on the same screen. I’ve watched this fight scene dozens of times haha hopefully you can help me because I’ve been waiting a long time to play this. Also I don’t have privileges to post a video

    @ubi-litten I haven't noticed any other problem so far. Tried a different controller but same thing. It's possible to move the cursor around and it "reacts" when i press X but nothing hapeens.

    Footage of the problem. Tried with both a Controller and a Mouse and Keyboard. You can see visibly while using the Controller that the game is registering the clicks, but allas, nothing.

    Don't know if it helps anyone else, but I was having the same issue on pc, with the input not actually working. I fixed it by changing my "Menu Hold Factor" back to it's default 1000ms and in the Interface menu the "Hold Alternative" back to OFF. That allowed me to use both mouse and controller inputs again.
