Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age: Origins now banned in the UAE
The National Media Council says no to two top EA titles.
We’ve received word from EA that Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age: Origin have been banned in the UAE. Rather surprising news as the games have been out in stores for a while now. We have no word on what prompted the ban but watch this space for more information. We’re guessing it has something to do with some rather raunchy scenes in the game. The UAE’s National Media Council probably banned the game after someone reported the sensual scenes in Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age: Origins after playing the game.
In 2009, another one of EA’s games, The Godfather II, was pulled out of stores after it was banned following its release. Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age: Origins follow a similar trend where a game has been banned after it has been released.
As the game is now banned, EA has politely asked us to cancel the competition we’re running for four copies of Mass Effect 2. Sorry folks, but watch out for more great competitions soon.
