Dragon Age II to be Racier Than the First? .. and Demo News!!
BioWare announced that a Dragon Age 2 demo will be released on February 22. In the demo, you’ll be able to “choose from three different character classes, as well as enter a key new location in the world of Dragon Age, Kirkwall, befriending Isabela, a romantic interest in the game who is also a deadly smuggler.” After completing the demo, you’ll also “unlock a special weapon, Hayder’s Razor, an ancient dwarven blade which increases health, mana, and combat abilities,” to be used with the full release of Dragon Age 2.”
The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has released its rating information for Dragon Age II, and it stated that there will be romantic “male-female” cut-scenes, as well as “same-sex” scenes, which BioWare decided against for Mass Effect 2. There will also be a suggested scene of fellatio. The full Description is below.
This is an action-adventure role-playing game in which players assume the role of a warrior who completes quests in a mythical land. Players use swords, bows and arrows, and magical spells (e.g., fireballs, energy beams) to defeat human-like enemies and fantasy creatures (e.g., giant spiders, demons, ogres, golems). Attacks are often accompanied by slashing sounds, large explosions, and cries of pain. Blood splatter effects occur when enemies are hit, and damage sometimes results in dismemberment or decapitation—blood stains and body parts occasionally appear in the environment. In one cutscene, a man’s severed head is held up then tossed to the ground. During the course of the game, characters sometimes engage in sexual dialogue (e.g., “Why is it always about sex with you?” and “Sailing is like sex. Do it wrong, and it’ll make you sick.”). Players can also initiate brief cutscene sequences in which couples (male-female or same-sex) are shown kissing and embracing one another in a bedroom as the screen fades to black. In one cutscene, a woman kneels in front of a male character and appears to perform fellatio—there is no depiction of the sex act; the camera pans out to the rest of the room. The words “a*s,” “bastard,” and “sh*t” appear in dialogue.
