Assassin’s Creed II to contain ‘a bit of sex’

The portrayal of sex in videogames has a short, extremely checkered lifespan.

Uncomfortably, it started with the rape of a Native American woman in Custer’s Revenge, and a bunch of other rubbish/unbelievably tacky ‘erotic’ Atari 2600 games.

Since then, few games have attempted sex scenes, and those that do have fallen flat. The last game I played with sex in it? Fahrenheit, and those scenes were more awkward than my own sexual encounters. Believe me, that’s quite an achievement.

Sex as depicted in games is crap, then. But Ubisoft wants to change that. Assassin’s Creed II director Benoit Lambert has confirmed that his medieval stabby sequel will contain some business time.

“[Hero] Ezio is a womaniser. There’s a bit of sex. I can’t say more.”

You tease, Benoit! The game hits shelves November 20th. Will Ubisoft become the first company to create videogame sex that isn’t utterly cringeworthy to watch? (Spoiler: no.)
