Mass Effect to include sex scene

BBFC undresses blockbuster.

Mass Effect has earned itself a 12 rating from the BBFC for containing moderate violence and some steamy hanky-panky. About time, says us.

But we wouldn't suggest reading any further if you are worried about spoilers.

The scene is the sort of thing you're likely to see in most films at the cinema, with a brief flash of a breast and some jazz saxophone wailing in the background. You can tell those involved really like each other and will probably pursue the relationship further, for example.

Developer BioWare has even given players the chance to see a lesbian encounter, depending on the the sex of your character and the choices you make throughout the game. You can find out a little more about it on the BBFC site, but it further uncovers what is likely to be a big part of the story in the game.

BioWare has included a relationship path in a large portion of its games to date. But, in keeping with nearly everything else in Mass Effect, the choice here is more detailed and has a lot more depth.

Head over to our recent first impressions of Mass Effect to see how one of this year's most anticipated titles is shaping up.

Mass Effect will be released exclusively for Xbox 360 on 23rd November.
