BioWare: It Would be “Silly” to Not Give a Choice About Sexual Orientation in Dragon Age: Inquisition

September 22, 2014Written by Alex Co


Back in July, BioWare revealed that for the first time, the studio is introducing a “fully gay” character in one of its games. 

Continuing with our exclusive interview with BioWare Producer Cameron Lee, we asked him how has the public reacted to this announcement, and whether the public helped shaped that change for Dragon Age: Inquisition.

So, the reactions are always interesting — generally, they are mostly positive. Some people don’t like it, that’s fine, they can… think that way. But the vast majority of people, they think that’s a good thing. We’ve tried to represent a variety of different people, and different sexualities and gender as well. You can be a male, you can be a female, you know, you can change the way that you look, you can have different hairs, different skin tones. So, you know, you give all that type of control to a player that they are… it would seem silly to not also give a choice about their sexual orientation. But yeah, general reception has been good.

I don’t know about you, but having more choices in games are always a good thing, right? Make sure to check back later in the week for our full interview with Lee regarding Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Should more games let you choose what your in-game character’s sexual orientation should be Or will that just open a can of worms that’s not even warranted?
