Last week, gamers were able to get a look at what Ubisoft has in store for them at the Ubisoft Forward Event. One of the arguably most hyped games, is the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which will let players control the Viking Eivor as they raid across England. During the Ubisoft Forward Event, gamers were able to learn that they would be able to switch between genders at any time throughout the game. The reason behind this, as stated by Ubisoft’s Youssef Maguid in an IGN interview is because “the Animus allows you to replay genetic memory, and the memory isn’t always 100% complete and synced, and so it allows you to make some choices here or there.”
Alongside this new gender swapping mechanic, Youssef Maguid also confirmed that “there are multiple people you can romance in the game, and you can romance all of them as either gender.”
Assassins Creed Valhalla will be releasing for the PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Google Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X on November 17th 2020.
