Will we see a penis in Dragon Age: The Veilguard? It’s clearly a spoiler


Game Informer saw tits—specifically, the magazine saw a topless character in the Dragon Age: The Veilguard character creator, which was previewed as part of the last series of exclusive articlesThis is the most explicit nudity ever shown in the Dragon Age series.

“It’s a mature RPG,” game director Corrine Busche told the magazine.

The character creator did not show any private parts below the waist, however, and Game Informer reports that when BioWare was asked if the RPG would feature full nudity — for example, during romance scenes — the developer responded that it wanted fans to see for themselves.

I had to read that a few times to make sure I understood it correctly. BioWare wants players to discover for themselves whether there are penises and vaginas in Dragon Age: The Veilguard? What a strange and whimsical answer! Game Informer itself noted that it was “an interesting answer, considering we’re talking about genitalia,” but it didn’t provide any clarification.

Not long ago, I would have assumed the answer was no. There was a real panic among cable news buffoons who awkwardly climbed half-naked characters on top of each other in Mass Effect, and I expected caution from major publishers. But Larian didn’t hide anything with Baldur’s Gate 3 last year, and if there were any negative consequences, they weren’t obvious.

So it was a reasonable question, but I can’t say the same for the answer — whether or not you can see the testicles doesn’t seem like something that should be considered a spoiler, but maybe the story really is headed in the right direction. Either way, it’s something a lot of people probably want to know before they play: Baldur’s Gate 3 is open about its nudity and includes scenery to hide it.

That being said, I’d wager that The Veilguard probably won’t show any details below the belt, but I guess we’ll find out together. It’ll definitely involve toplessness, as we’ve already learned, though I’m reluctant to connect that with any kind of “mature” tone they’re going for, being a proponent of the “free the nipples” idea — a naked male torso doesn’t always mean sex. (Well, in a BioWare game it probably means sex, but you get the idea.)

Thanks to Game Informer’s coverage this week, we also learned some recent details about Veilguard’s difficulty options — which let you turn off death entirely — and how we’ll develop relationships with our companions. They’ve more about character creatortoo.
