Can you play a male in Assassin's Creed Valhalla? What are the character options for Eivor in Ubisoft's new RPG

With Assassin's Creed Odyssey came a tonne of new features to the iconic series and it looks like Assassin's Creed Valhalla will be continuing this trend in several different ways...

Not only will the new game likely be more RPG based like it's two predecessors, but the main character (named Eivor) will be very customisable...

Is Eiover a male?

Yes and no... Eivor the protagonist and main playable character in Assassin's Creed Valhalla is a 'Viking who participated in the Viking raids in England.

The name of your character is always going to be Eivor, however, you can choose their gender - presumably, this means, just like in Assassin's Creed Odyssey you will be able to play as a male character.

However, unlike the previous game, the two characters aren't long lost twins... but are in fact just the same character! Rather like 'V' in Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077.
