I sow that there were some old topics about this particular issue, but I was encouraged after today's live chat with one of the Ubisoft support workers (which was an amazing and really safe experience for me, a [censored] person). First of all I will quote my suggestion ticker from the live chat:
Dear Ubisoft Stuff,
I know that probably you get many tickets every and each day. I'm new to the Assassin's Creed franchise. For me, before Oddysey it was not a RPG I would like to inwest into. Even when Oddysey was out, I was not ready (I think) to give it a try. But I watched A LOT of streams to get the feeling of the game. And I enjoyed it. When you announced Valhalla I was on a cloud nine. When you said that Eivor could be as gay as we wanted him to, it was even better news. Romance options were something that I was looking up to (I'm the all time Bioware fan). I'm still at the probably beginning of the game, lvl 63 and 12% of the game completion. And I'm enjoying it very, very much. The cahracter I was looking forward, to get a really nice, long term relationship with was Vili. He's handsome, well written and has a past with our protagonist. I was really bumped when I learned that he is only a one night stand. On the other hand, Tarben is not my type, like totally. It is really shame that we only have one option for our gay Eivor to have someone in our settlement, to spend Eivor's life with. I know that the game is not about romances. And I know that this is not a very important part of it. But a lot of players came here to get the feel of nice Norse cRPG, with good plot and killing, but also, for romances. And gay romances in particular, 'cause even now in 2021, those are pretty rare in the gaming industry.
I'm not going to write something spectacular (English is not my mother tongue) not only because you probably know almost everything about it, but also, because I don't want to pressure you. I would only love to see Vili as a long term relationship for those of us who chose him as their Eivor's lover. If not, perhpas you may think about adding a new male romance option in the upcoming DLCs? Someone from the Wrath of the Druids could be interesting, like Adonis in Atlantis DLC. I know that his story was tragic at the end, but he was like a really amazing potential long term relationship. And I think that Valhalla also needs some good, gay romance options. Not only for one night stands, but for a long terms. Let our Norse settle down with a hubby, please.
I really would love to see Vili as a long term relationship for our Eivor (regardless their gender, as it is stated in previous romances in this game). They have a lot in common, they have a history and a bond. I would be really pleasent to see them becoming a couple. If not, as I mentioned above, I think it would be pretty neat to get some new long term relationship options via DLC. Something like Adonis, but less tragic maybe? You know, my dear Ubisoft, just let me get my husbend to my settlement safely? 😄
Anyway - it's my first true Assassin's Creed experience and I really love it! (fist fighting nuns FTW!) but I do miss a fine, long term romance option for my male Eivor. Tarben is just not my type, and to have only one option that isn't a fling... Breaks my heart. :c
