In a lot of long-running franchises like Assassin’s Creed for instance, there are a number of features that fans have interest in, and some of them seem like they would be easily enough to implement, but for one reason or another they’re held back. It could be due to budgets and time constraints, having different priorities, or just not being a part of the vision of the developers.
Sometimes it’s just a small cosmetic thing, or a little feature that might make life a bit easier. Sometimes, people take it REALLY seriously, much more than they should. Whatever the case, some new details about Assassin’s Creed: Origins have now emerged, and a little thing that players have wanted for a while is now here…
This goes back to a petition for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate where players wanted to keep their hood on, instead of having it always-off after completing the game which drove some people mad in AC3.
It sounds like Ubisoft was listening, according to an anonymous source that that is trusted by Gamesradar:
“You’ll be able to put your hood up or down whenever you feel like it,”
It seems like a minor thing, but when people are outraged enough to start petitions, and it’s easier enough to add in, what’s the harm?
