Mass Effect 3 To Have More Gay Options.
Bioware’s Executive Producer of the Mass Effect series, Casey Hudson has confirmed via twitter that Mass Effect 3 will have more love options that does not limit the player to which gender they want their love interest to be. Whether you’re the Male Sheperd or Female, you’ll have a bit more options to fully explore the sexual universe.
Bioware has been extremely supportive towards the gay community by allowing these options to be included in their role-playing games. A while back a gamer complained on the Bioware forums saying that Dragon Age 2 should have an option that would turn off the homosexuality that’s in game. The Lead writer of Dragon Age 2 responded with a very firm response on why the romances are not just for “the straight male gamer”, they’re for everyone. You can go here to read the full response.
Casey Hudson also noted that “love interests won’t all necessarily be permanent squad members.” There will also be more moments in game where Sheperd shows a simple sign of friendship with familiar characters. This makes waiting for Mass Effect 3 a bit little harder. (no pun intended)
Mass Effect 3 is stated to be released on PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 in Q1 2012.
