"I will bring myself sexual pleasure later, while thinking about this with great respect."

With Dragon Age: Inquisition's release now less than a month away, the game's ESRB rating has been posted, and it's a doozy. Via Kotaku, the role-playing game has received an M rating for blood, violence, strong language, nudity, and sexual content.

ESRB ratings are often funny/strange/bizarre to read without the context of playing the game, and this is no different for Inquisition. Regarding Inquisition's sexual scenes, the ESRB reveals some of the most bizarre pillow talk we've ever seen in gaming.

Here's how the ESRB sums it up (emphasis added):

"The game includes some sexual material: a female character briefly depicted in front of a man's torso (fellatio is implied); characters depicted topless or with exposed buttocks while lying in bed or after sex; some dialogue referencing sex/sexuality (e.g., 'I will bring myself sexual pleasure later, while thinking about this with great respect' and 'The way your t*ts bounce when I pin your arms and take you on the side of the bed…'). The words 'f**k,' 'sh*t,' and 'a*shole' appear in dialogue."

The ESRB rating also reveals that Inquisition will make the most of its M rating in terms of violence. According to the rating, we'll see cutscenes where characters get impaled or have their throats slit. Other violent sequences will highlight cries of pain, gurgling/gushing sounds, and "large blood-splatter effects."

Inquisition launches November 18 for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. BioWare recently confirmed that the game will run at 1080p on PS4 and 900p on Xbox One. Inquisition was originally targeted to launch a full year ago, but has since been delayed twice.

November 18 is shaping up to be a busy day for high-profile new releases, as the Xbox One and PS4 versions of Grand Theft Auto V and WWE 2K15 are due to launch on that day, alongside Far Cry 4, Escape Dead Island, LittleBigPlanet 3, and Watch Dogs for Wii U.
