Starfield ESRB Rating Details Combat, Pillow Talk, and More

When it comes to ratings boards, they usually can reveal anything from completely unannounced titles to expanding upon some little known elements of upcoming games and considering the many mysteries around Starfield‘s gameplay and various elements despite the game arriving on September 6th, the ESRB rating has revealed a bit more info for the game. Starfield was given an M rating for Blood, Strong Language, Suggestive Themes, Use of Drugs, and Violence, and In-Game Purchases with the last one likely pointing towards future DLC.

As for some of the more in-depth elements we get to learn a little bit more about combat and a bit of gore as well as the fact that players will be able to have relations in the game, make use of drugs, and have “suggestive dialogue”, the full rating for Bethesda‘s upcoming release can be found below:

This is an open-world role-playing game in which players assume the role of a miner tasked with finding Artifacts across the galaxy. From first-/third-person perspectives, players interact with various characters, complete quests, and search for supplies while battling enemies (e.g., humans, robots, alien creatures). Players use futuristic guns, lasers, axes, and explosives to kill enemies. Combat is fast-paced, with frequent gunfire, cries of pain, and explosions. Attacks on some enemies can result in blood-splatter effects; several environments depict blood stains on the ground around corpses. The game contains some suggestive material in the dialogue, and after sharing a bed with characters (e.g., “Life is a sexually transmitted disease that’s a hundred percent fatal”; “I’m all for getting a little wild, but next time let’s try it without the jetpacks”; “Talk about seeing stars, whew… that was amazing.”). A fictional drug (Aurora) is prominent in the game, with a section involving players’ characters working in an illicit drug lab; players can also obtain Aurora by stealing or buying it from vendors (consuming Aurora results in a distortion effect on the screen). The words “f*k” and “bullsht” appear in the game.
