For a long time video games creators have backed off from sex and intimacy, however according to French video game developer Ubisoft Entertainment SA, this might be about to change as more games confront these areas. With growing demand amongst staff to make characters increasingly human, they’re ready to pack their epic hits with sex.
So, instead of a one-dimensional killer in shooter hit like Ubisoft’s The Division, you will soon have more realistic and rounded characters with love lives, real-life issues, love lives, and diverse relationships.
Ubisoft to Steam up The Action Games
Ubisoft is the fourth biggest publicly-traded games company in the U.S. and Europe and second only to Activision Blizzard, Electronic Arts, and Take-Two Interactive as far as capitalization and revenue are concerned. It’s known for many acclaimed video game franchises such as Far Cry, Assassin’s Creed, Tom Clancy’s, Just Dance, Prince of Persia, Raving Rabbids, and Rayman. According to the giant’s bosses, steaming up the action with more real-life heroes will help advance games for the next gen of consoles.
Exec VP of Creative for Ubisoft’s Canada studio, Lionel Raynaud, says that if there are 500 individuals in a game Ubisoft creates, they can select which segments of characters will attract a specific audience. He adds that at a recent company event, questions regarding romance came up and it was very clear that there’s an audience out there waiting and ready for this.
More Lovable and Exciting Characters
Furthermore, Raynaud states that some Ubisoft games are ready to go beyond fights and gameplay as the offering and to up the antics by including romance, friendship, and many other elements that would be incredibly interesting. Characters will be more lovable and exciting as they won’t just talk about fighting, but about things players experience in their own daily lives.
In the meantime, Ubisoft is getting ready for a big 6 months ahead with the release of an entire host of new titles on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox. The largest title is clearly Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the most recent in the open-world adventure series that’s located in ancient Greece. More excitement up for grabs includes space adventure where toys come to life in Starlink: Battle for Atlas, psycho virtual reality thriller Transference, and the famed Just Dance 2019.
Add to that a lot more additional content (DLC) for current Ubisoft video game titles such as Rainbow Six Siege, The Crew 2 (launched just last month), and For Honor.
Get ready for some serious, and possibly more realistic if explicit, gaming!
