BioWare: Sex Scenes In Dragon Age: Inquisition Will Be "Mature And Tasteful"

Posted on Monday, October 14 @ 06:55:48 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


As one might expect, "romance scenes" will be included in BioWare's upcoming fantasy role-playing game, Dragon Age: Inquisition

Cinematic director Jonathan Perry told GamerZines that the studio is carefully crafting these scenes in such a way that they result in a "mature and tasteful" end product. 

We certainly could push those romance scenes in any direction we wanted really. Something that didn’t work well is that we tried more, well I won’t say graphic, but in Dragon Age: Origins we had characters crawling around in their underwear and it looked weird because they were wearing these lacy Victoria’s Secret panties and outfits which looked out of place.

Certainly when you have these characters interacting with each other in such an intimate way it’s incredibly expensive in terms of animation fidelity and getting it to look like they are really there and touching each other. I think Mass Effect’s scenes were done really well and I think we will take Inquisition’s scenes in that direction.

You might have a nude character but they are framed in such a way that parts of them are in shadow, or having characters in various states of undress. We also want to focus not just on the sex itself, but also that this is the culmination of spending a lot of time with a character and getting to know them, and so we’re giving scenes a mature and tasteful treatment I guess. We’ll see where it goes for Dragon Age: Inquisition, it’s something that we’re working on right now so we’ll see how these scenes pan out.

Do you think BioWare has handled in-game love scenes well in the past? Are these types of scenes even worth including, or are they better left out altogether? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts in the comments below.
