The telltale signs of political bias are actually missing from the new Assassin's Creed, i.e. namely the character design of Kassandra is actually physically attractive - aka a no-go for the neo-puritanical Sarkeesian crowd who equate beauty with some form of oppressive evil (just check Mass Effect Andromeda for example where women were made ugly - on purpose). It's no joke, i.e. one of the most jarring aspects of Ellie's kiss in the new Last of Us game is the fact the designers also deliberately made her girlfriend... ugly. By choice. That's way more dubious than simply inserting a female protagonist & indicative of a agenda driven approach to their work.
