Assassin's Creed Odyssey allowed you to play as either a male or female character for the first time in the series when it launched a couple of years ago, and thankfully, the next instalment will be bringing that widely-requested feature back. Confirmed via a Ubisoft press release, Assassin's Creed Valhalla will allow you to play as either a male or a female Viking.

No matter which gender you choose, you will take up the name of Eivor. You'll be able to customise their hair, tattoos, war paint, and gear as well as influence political and combat decisions. Dialogue choices will also make a comeback -- choosing between protecting your clan's home and the future. Unfortunately, Ubisoft hasn't shared what the female protagonist looks like just yet, but we're happy in the fact that we will be able to play as a woman once more with Assassin's Creed Valhalla. In the meantime, check out the male Viking character model below.
