Assassin’s Creed Valhalla officially released on November 10, and its launch was widely praised by the press and gamers. It is without counting a new case of validism, pointed out by Courtney Craven of the site specializing in the accessibility of video games Can I Play That?.
She pointed at Twitter the character description ofEorforwine, who is described as endowed with a “disfigured face” after being burned during her childhood. Courtney Craven described this text as “absolutely unacceptable”, because affecting the integrity of people who have experienced this type of incident.
I didn’t include this in my post on my impressions of Assassins Creed Valhalla, but it’s just as important to address it. This is an in-game character description. It is absolutely unacceptable to talk about facial differences in this way. Game writers and the like have to do better.
Ubisoft did not remain deaf to his remark, and quickly excused on social networks, announcing in passing that a future update would change this description.
Thank you very much for pointing this out – we apologize for unintentionally building ableism through this language. We will remove this language element in a future update.
The controversy should therefore not swell, whileUbisoft will correct this element of non-exclusive language which might disturb some. If not, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is still available from € 69.99 on Amazon.fr.
