Starfield it has now been officially evaluated dall’Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB), the evaluation committee for North America. Previously he was alone an image from the Twitter account leaked online of the game and there was no official announcement from the institution.
The page is now on ESRB websiteproviding some trivia about the game, such as confirming that Starfield actually features sex scenes, unlike what was previously reported by the Australian rating board. The description mentions some phrases spoken by non-player characters after “sharing a bed” with the player character. Furthermore, there is likely to be no visual representation of the activity, which is why the Australian council did not consider its impact in rating the game. The ESRB also confirms that there will be missions where the character can work in a illicit drug laboratory to produce the drugAurora“.
Here is the official description of what is reported on the ESRB website
“This is an open world RPG where players take on the role of a miner tasked with finding artifacts across the galaxy. From a first/third person perspective, players interact with various characters, complete missions and scavenge for supplies while battling enemies (e.g. humans, robots, alien creatures). Players use futuristic guns, lasers, axes and explosives to kill enemies. Combat is frenetic, with frequent gunfire, cries of pain, and explosions. Attacks on some enemies can cause blood spatter effects; several environments depict bloodstains on the ground around the corpses. The game contains some suggestive material in the dialogues and after sharing the bed with the characters (for example, “Life is a sexually transmitted disease that is one hundred percent fatal”; “I’m ready to get a little wild, but next time let’s try without the jetpacks”; “Talk about seeing the stars, wow…that was amazing.”). A fictional drug (Aurora) is prominent in the game, with one section involving player characters working in an illicit drug lab; players can also obtain Aurora by stealing or buying it from vendors (consuming Aurora causes a distortion effect on the screen). The words “c***o” and “str****t” appear in the game.”
Starfield will come out September 6th per Xbox Series X/S e PC.
