Darby McDevitt and Ubisoft have been lied for all these months.
You'll play for the 80% of the game like female Eivor.
Now,I already know that a lot of people are ready to say that I am a poor and crying man Who can't play as a male,and you're only a bit right.
In fact,some of the games I've played,have female protagonists: Tomb Raider,Horizon, Marvel's Avengers, Uncharted the Lost Legacy,etc.
So my problem isn't female Eivor,but the fact that you let me choose male Eivor and then you practally say to me:"No.You made the wrong choice".
This is the thing I really hate.
In fact,when you will finish the game,you can sit in the garden in the present day as Basim.
Then you will see a figure who seems Odin and,even if you choose male Eivor,you find female Eivor under that Hood!
So,after saying for months that they were both canon, Ubisoft should give us answers, because when they said these things there weren't default choices,there weren't bul***its about the reincarnation.
There were a lot of players that like me said:"Fantastic!I can play always male Eivor and be canon".
But we know how It has ended.
Assassin's Creed had a lot of protagonists Who felt love and for me it is an important thing that a protagonist has someone of special in his/her life, because we know very well how much the assassin's life can be bad.
Anyhow in Odyssey and Valhalla the romances aren't default and the we can choose our lover,but this thing a bit ruin the franchise, because like I said the romances can be very important in the story of the game,but if someone can be romanced, we won't get the same effect of the other games.
The only thing Ubisoft can do,but that the probably won't do anymore,is putting a default romance like in Odyssey.
Personally I am one of the few people who liked that romance.
I've always thought that my version of Alexios at a certain point would chossed to have a family,but like I said this thing will change in Valhalla.
We have the possibility to have also a long term relationship,but I had thought it would have worked different.
They said that after a group of missions you could date your lover in the settlement,but this thing doesn't have an impact on the story.
After the East Anglia story,I finished the Petra's missions and began a romance with her.I liked the fact that finally I could have a "real" girlfriend,but with the time my opinion has changed.
During the story a lot of important events happen in the Eivor's life,also in the settlement.
And when these happen,what does Petra do?
She is my girlfriend,but She practally doesn't care me.
This One of the reasons because of I began a relationship with Randvi After the Gunnar's wedding.
She has been more present in the story.
Also if Petra was my girlfriend,it seemed that Randvi was her.
So I hope that in the next DLCs,also the new yule festival,and in the next games we will feel more the impact of the romances in the missions.
I can only agree you.Maybe one day I will repropose this discussion or maybe there won't be need because we will already get a story creator mode.I don't understand too why Ubisoft why Ubisoft has continuing to say that Valhalla is the game which was bought more.The real problem is that now they believe more in the RPG formula and they will wait longer for the next game.But this is Assassin's Creed!Not Fortnite or GTA!There is need of new chapters with new stories!They shouldn't spend a lot time on Valhalla.
Maybe you haven't played some missions where the people talk to male Eivor like a woman.There are many references,very bad if you thought to play normally as manly male viking for all the time.So what is canon isn't important only in the comics or in the novels. And to avoid this problem,I hope that through this poll Ubisoft will understand what the community really want.
