Assassin’s Creed gender selection will be standard moving forward

Assassin’s Creed gender selection will be standard in all future games, Ubisoft has detailed.

“I think it would be a mistake to limit our players, limit our fanbase from as many people as possible,” Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey Game Director, Scott Phillips, told GamesIndustry. “I don’t know why we would go back. We should continue pushing in this direction, bring in more players, more fans to enjoy this experience and make it their own experience.

Odyssey transitions the franchise to a full-fledged RPG, where player choice is paramount, Phillips reiterated.

“We want, as much as possible, to give you those options to affect the world, maybe in ways you might not have been able to in the past,” he said. “There’s some quest givers that you can just kill and you’re not going to get that quest. There’s things like that, you can impact the world in ways that haven’t been possible in the past because of choice.”

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 on 5 October. Who will you be selecting when it comes out: Alexios or Kassandra?
