Mass Effect: Lesbian sex CONFIRMED

Sept 18, 2007

The BBFC's rating of Mass Effect has revealed new and tantalising plot details from the BioWare RPG, including the revelation that one hot alien sex scene contributes to its angsty 12 rating. The BBFC is a UK-specific ratings board that dictates what content minors are able to see and is the primary film ratings board. North America's ESRB has already rated the game M for Blood, Sexual Themes, Violence and Partial Nudity.

"The game has been classified at '12' for moderate violence and one sex scene," reads the BBFC rating. "The sex scene is triggered by the player making a series of choices about becoming more than friends with a colleague. If playing as a male character the scene can take place between him and a human woman or a humanoid female alien.

"If playing as a female character the scene can take place between her and a male human or a female humanoid alien."

"The game also contains use of the word 'bastard' and at least one aggressive use of the word 'bitch,'" the listing continues. "Both of which are acceptable under BBFC guidelines at '12.'"

In ourrecent interviewBioWare doctor Greg Zeschuk hinted at gay relationships in the RPG, but didn't mention anything about the hot girl-on-girl action. "There's some interesting stuff in the game that's a little bit different. I'll leave it at that," he said.

We're guessing that because Microsoft has willingly given up the scene, it's neither that graphic, nor will it rile up another hot coffee controversy.
