    Ubisoft: Most Fans wouldn't mind playing as a Female Assassin

    Ubisoft – Fans Would Accept Female Assassin’s Creed Lead | EGMNOW


    THE BUZZ: Ubisoft hasn’t ruled out the possibility of introducing a female lead character into the Assassin’s Creed world, but admit that it would have to be approached carefully.

    VideoGamer asked Falco Poiker, Senior Level Designer on Assassin’s Creed, how fans would react to a female lead, to which he replied, ”Very well. I don’t get to make these decisions but we know that the courtesan in multiplayer is the most popular multiplayer character so I have faith that people would respond well. I don’t know how far people go in imagining that Desmond is Ezio. When I play the game I feel like I’m following the story of Desmond and I’m following the story of Ezio. And so, I’d love to play a female character. Like, as long as she was cool and badass and moved well. You know, I mean, it would be fun to hear those quips. It would be fun to have Desmond come out of the animus and say something and that would help you tie the two together.”


    “We’d always want to go back a few generations. You know, like, when Assassin’s Creed was first created, Animus 1.0, the Templar’s animus really put Desmond in the place of Altair because that was the simple way of trying to keep the subject’s mind intact by not throwing them for a loop. In this we have some explanations in this game about avatar projection where you can scale how much or how little you look like your avatar depending on how much the subject responds psychologically to the transfer. So we’ve now gone away from this idea – we could have Desmond play as a woman. He might have to have some strange quips when he came out of it like “that feels weird”. But yeah, I think we could get away with it. If we didn’t make a big deal of it,” added Darby McDevitt, Lead Scriptwriter.


    EGM’s TAKE: As long as it was approached correctly then fans would accept a female character quite easily, however if they got it all wrong then it could seriously hurt the series.


    Just make a Alyx Vance esque character and your set ubisoft.


    Alyx vance is the only female character in recent memory that wasn't sexified or terribly written (maybe faith from mirrors edge too).

    Main reason I play as a female character.

    I wouldn't mind a female lead. Might bring a whole new edge to the series. I can imagine the banter Desmond will make about the awkwardness of him reliving a female's life instead of a male's.

    Lol, I actually like the Gears of War games.

    I didn't say that I will never play anything but female characters but I do prefer to play with women.

    I prefer playing female characters always.

    no matter what.


    there arn't really any strong main character females. Just for once i would like to play as a female who isn't oversexualized to hell and isn't terribly written.

    This was the word for word answer I would give in warcraft when people would ask me why I played a female main and why 80% of my chars on alliance were females the 2 male chars I had were a Dwarf Pally (who would wanna stare at a female dwarf?!) and male dranai shaman (spent most of the time questing as ghostwolf so I rarely had to look at him unless I was raiding)

    I highly doubt thet'd add such a future . Hell, we never had to visit the bathroom at random intervals in previous Ass Creed games, did we?

    LOL! No, they won't. As long as she's not cramping during an assassination, then I'm good!

    Oh boy, that'd be some hillarious shit! Imagine the female assassin giving her speech to his soon-to-be-dead target, then cramping, and getting ran over by a dozen guards.

    Personally, as long as Desmond is the one entering the animus I'd rather not see a female assassin. I felt Viddic made it clear in AC1 that they could have major problems adjusting to the ancestor if they differed too greatly from the one entering the animus. Then just from my personal opinion, I'd rather not see it cause it's going to be some over-sexualized woman aimed at for the pleasure for men and probably will have little in common with how actual women act. But yeah, the series can go wild once Desmond's story is over and they kick him out of focus. I won't care much after that's done.

    I think a female assassin would be an awesome character to play as. In most of my games that let me pick a gender, I play as female first and then male. Except Mass Effect 2&3, those get male chars first. But female characters can kick ass if they're done right. For instance, I wouldn't mind in the slightest if ME was non=RPG and had me playing as Liara or Ashley, but if it had me playing as, oh I don't know, Kelly Chambers, I would probably not be able to get into the story. I mean, not to say she's a completely naive moron or anything, but I think I would be spending more time burning myself with thermal clips than shooting Collectors/Reapers.

    People can write strong female roles well

    I doubt they would screw it up.

    I would love to have a female character as a playable character

    The only reason why I usually don't because I try to make characters resemble me, but if I do as a chick, ...

    Difference here being that the Ass Creed series never try to over-sexualize female characters, so they wouldn't try it with a leading female assassin.

    would post more examples of non-sexualized AC female choices but the search engines i usually use to find images either don't have any of that or are too slow
