Sometimes it’s the little things.
The Dragon Age series has always stood out for its “all’s fair in love and war” handling of in-game romances. It’s also infamous for featuring rendered sex scenes, gay and straight, that are seriously awkward to behold. Like its sister series Mass Effect there’s typically a less-than-subtle suggestion that, despite the freedom to build any character you want, creating a male hero is the right way to go. At least that’s how it was in the past. Developer BioWare has just released some official box art to challenge that perception.
Dragon Age: Inquisition, the latest entry in the series due out this fall, features a figure on its cover that could be any gender. The best part — the character’s gender is totally irrelevant!
