BioWare is taking concerns over Mass Effect: Andromeda’s gay romances “very seriously”


Well, that's good to know.

BioWare is taking concerns over Mass Effect: Andromeda‘s gay romances “very seriously”, according to its Lead Designer.

“This is definitely not going in the trash,” BioWare’s Ian S. Frazier said on Twitter over a lack of depth in gay romances, specifically male-on-male ones.

“We take the concerns very, very seriously.”

Fans are concerned that gay romances pale in comparison to straight ones; a male, gay-identifying player doesn’t even have the opportunity to romance a squadmate.

This assertion comes as BioWare prepares for Andromeda‘s first special multiplayer event. Called “Drack’s Missing Scouts”, Pathfinders will need to team up to emerge victorious on a new map, “Firebase Paradox”, between 23-27 March.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
