I'm currently running PS4, with v1.0.2 installed. When going through the menus (World, Inventory, Quests, etc), the option for Animus via Up on the D-Pad isn't always available. It's a little jarring/inconsistent for the Inventory panel to be the only place to access this. I appreciate the Tutorials option is only available as needed, no complaints there. I'd expect to have the Animus option be consistently available, like the Store option.
If you're here looking for the Animus option to switch genders, go to the Inventory panel and it'll be available.
