Ahead of its release, there was confusion over Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s default option which has you play as both male and female versions of main character Eivor at various points.
The choice to play Eivor solely as a woman or solely as a man are also present, of course, but Ubisoft said the game’s “Animus decides” option would provide more clues to the game’s wider story, and was therefore the default.
But when would you switch between the two options? How often would this happen? For story reasons, Ubisoft said, it would not elaborate further.
