Female Eivor Reveal

When we saw the male version of Eivor in the epic trailer a few things stood out.

One shot in particular of him at the front of a Viking boat heading into battle was pretty awesome.

The female reveal was left to be shown in the Collector’s Edition and she’s holding a similar pose.

Other notable features of the depiction include her weapons, outfit and energetically charged stance.

Holding the axe with her shield in the other hand, she looks as if she’s leading a charge, which could be one of the raids we are hearing so much about.

The amour looks brilliant also – a combination of leather and fur providing warmth, in addition to manoeuvrability in battle.

But would the story drastically change if you played as the male character compared to the female character?

All we know at this point is that both character are ‘canon’, but we’ll have to wait for more information on how their stories could be different.
