How to Change Gender in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

At the start of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you’ll be given the choice to play as either a male or female Eivor. But you can change your gender in-game whenever you want. Here’s how.

Changing your character’s gender while playing may seem like a strange thing to do. But remember, in Assassin’s Creed, what you’re seeing is through the Animus; it’s a recreation of past memories. In that context, it makes sense that those memories could change on a whim. And because of that, you can change whether you play as male or female Eivor at will.

You can also choose a third option: ‘Let the Animus choose’, which flips between both a male or female Eivor at various points of the game.

But how do you change gender in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla? It’s easy. Press the start/options button to bring up the game’s menu. From there, press ‘up’ on the d-pad to access the Animus menu.

In the Animus menu, click the option that says ‘Change Eivor’s Appearance’. From there, you have three choices: female Eivor, male Eivor, or ‘Let the Animus choose’.

It’s as simple as that. You can change between all three options as often as you like, changing Eivor’s gender as you see fit.
