@fimbulthulur Mass effect and Dragon age actually did the choose your gender option properly and much more. Male and female Shepard/Inquistor for example were "Actually" canon and not soft canon. You really felt that your hero and your heros choices mattered. It's your "Odyssey" remember that being said over and over again when assassin's creed Odyssey was being released...yeah sure okay.
The problem is not that they're trying to make historical like games with a twist of mythology but that they're trying to force one choice over another and the same time making that other choice not matter or becoming redundant. Like seriously you made Odyssey have Alexios and Kassandra but with Valhalla I'm a male viking named Eivor smh a male with a females Norse name. Why not just give the male option a different name like Havi.
You did it with odyssey why not now? It's just weird decisions that are made. If you want to push a female protagonist so bad in odyssey, now Valhalla and I can only assume every future assassin's creed game. Just have the balls to do it or at least not be one sided on options and not give some half [censored] [censored] lie that you can choose genders and they're both canon when uh no not really.
