Absolutely devastated after Altair, and Connor, and Aveline, and Adewale, and Shao Junl, and...oh

To be honest, I would have liked a female protagonist, but I don't care that it's a guy.

No, Ubisoft are racist for not wanting to have a black protagonist in the main game.
They're also sexist for killing off all their significant female characters rendering them nothing more than 'women in refrigerators'

Of course he's white. There shouldn't even be any doubt about that.

Er? As much as anyone can be "entirely" white, that dude was whiter than Tippex.

Maybe it's a really really manly woman? :rolleyes:

Nah, I'm not even disappointed that it's not a woman... because I never got my hopes up for that in the first place :(


I just hope that guy does not have dark brown hair.
Please Ubisoft, we had enough brown-haired AC protagonists.

Not thirty minutes have past since the leak and this is already a point of debate. I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

It's Victorian London, the protagonist needs to make sense, just like in the French Revolution a non white protagonist would make little sense, a non white protagonist would make little sense in Victorian London too.

Is this character even male, though? I can't tell. "The assassin", "our protagonist"... Kotaku says "he" a couple of times, but what if this is a bluff?

I think there could be a surprise here.

And I don't want to live on a planet with people who pretend this issue isn't a deeply ingrained problem within our society.

So true. I guess it's AC's curse or something.

It's a problem because you're making it a problem.

Oh yes but ancient aliens and 'Pieces of Eden' that can bend time and space makes sense and is ultra realistic but a person of colour roaming Victorian England? Hell no! And for the record
some people of colour DID manage to live free in those times.

It's a problem because of people like you who like to pretend racism doesn't exist and silence those that try to expose it.

I see no racism here, I just see a new protagonist. Yet people have to immediately make a point about the gender and skin color. If anything, that could be considered racist.

You are comparing two different things.

What are "people of colour"? painters? ink sellers? :rolleyes:

??? So because he's white it's racist? Stop with this "if it doesn't have this ethnicity its racist" mentality.

It is racist when after EIGHT games in Ubisoft does not want to have a person of colour of woman as their main game protagonist.

You're right. I'm comparing something that actually happened (people of colour in VE) with something that didn't (Pieces of Eden made by TOTCB) So if we can have the made-up one why can't we have the actual one?


??? So because he's white it's racist? Stop with this "if it doesn't have this ethnicity its racist" mentality.

Because he's the EIGHTH - count it - EIGHTH white male protagonist in the main game.
