SPOILERS - Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Angry gamers after the end of the second DLC, Ubisoft apologizes
One of the strengths ofAssassin's Creed Odysseywas to leave us many choices in the narrative evolution of the story, and this from the selection of our character, Alexios or Kassandra. However, following events in The Legacy of Shadowsecond DLC adventure The Inheritance of the First Blade, the players felt a little biased. Attention, if you have not played this extension yet and want to do it, leave this article, spoilers guaranteed !
At the end of this second part, Alexios and Kassandra have the choice to have a love affair with a child of Darius, Natakas or Neema, or leave it. However, whatever your decision, you will end up having a child with this character of the opposite sex, certainly an obligation for the rest of the story. Where is the problem ? The concern is that until now, players had the opportunity to shape a homosexual character, so there would be no reason to have a baby at that time.
Of course, part of the community, attached to theAlexios or the Kassandra that it was created, did not appreciate this narrative obligation, which goes against their past adventure, and comes into conflict with the speech ofUbisoft on this subject. The publisher did not remain silent against the wrath of the community, and reacted on Reddit through Creative Director Jonathan Dumont.
By reading the players' responses to our new DLC for The Legacy Legacy Legacy, The Shadow Legacy, we want to apologize to players disappointed with a relationship their character is taking part in. The intention of this story was to explain how your character's lineage has a lasting impact on the Assassins, but in view of your answers, it's clear that we missed our shot [...].
Our goal was to leave the choice between a utilitarian vision of maintaining the lineage or creating a romantic relationship. We tried to distinguish the two but could have been more careful, as we were getting closer to the line between the players' choices and the story, and the clarity and motivation of this decision were poorly executed. As you continue your adventure in the next episode, know that you will not have to engage in a long-term relationship if you do not want to.
We have read your answers and take them to heart. It would have been a real learning for us. Understanding how important you are to Kassandra and Alexios is important, and knowing that we have failed is not something we take lightly. We will work to do better and ensure that the elements of choice made in Assassin's Creed Odyssey be carried in our DLC so that you stay in tune with the character you have been attached to.
You will understand, Jonathan Dumont pleads the error of writing, pointing out that it was necessary to understand that the character, even homosexual or not wishing to have a child with the son or the daughter of Darius, could have an offspring simply to preserve his lineage. Ubisoft still seems more determined than ever to satisfy his community in future extensions, and that, the players ofAssassin's Creed Odyssey will be delighted to learn it.
