Ubisoft Hints at LGBT+ Romance Options For Assassin’s Creed Shadows

Ubisoft is leaving Assassin’s Creed Shadows open for players to explore themselves. This is in terms of the world, combat and even the relationships they choose to have in the game.

According to the studio, Assassin’s Creed Shadows will allow its protagonists Yasuke and Naoe to romance “different types of people”. In addition, the studio says both Yasuke and Naoe “will attract and be attracted to different types of people”. As a result, players will get to experience a “multitude of relationships”.

Of course, Assassin’s Creed Shadows isn’t the first game in the series where players are able to enter into gay, lesbian and bisexual relationships. Both Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Valhalla included the option. Both games feature a variety of male and female romantic options which were approachable by both playable characters.

In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, these relationships were a bit less versatile given how you were unable to change the sex of Alexios and Kassandra after starting the game. In Valhalla, on the other hand, you could swap between a male and female version of Eivor.

The upcoming Assassin’s Creed Shadows game features swappable characters too. These characters are interchangeable throughout the game and feature different playstyles. We don’t know yet whether or not these leads have their own set questlines and relationship opportunities, however.

If Shadows follows the Odyssey route, players will likely be able to have open relationships with whoever they choose and jump between partners no matter what sex they are. If the game follows the Valhalla route, on the other hand, players will likely then have to choose between certain characters to bed with as they grow relationships with various NPCs throughout the game.

We still know very little about Assassin’s Creed Shadows at this point. While the game is already up for pre-order and offering bonus quests and a plethora of editions to purchase, Ubisoft hasn’t shown a second of gameplay. We can expect to see that next month at the Ubisoft Forward event. The game is expected to launch on 15 November for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
