Despite the fact that Bethesda role-playing games often touch on adult topics, it is rare to find very explicit content in them.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4, for example, once received a 15+ rating in Australia, however, it seems that in the case of the upcoming Starfield, everything will be somewhat different.
Recently, Starfield got a new exact release date after last year's delay, and now video game classification organizations have begun to give the project age ratings.
The first of them was the Australian Attestation Commission, which, as it turned out, assigned the game an 18+ rating.
Australia is known for its strict attitude to video games, and in the case of Starfield, the main motive for putting up a high rating was the mention of drugs in the game.
At the same time, the regulator noted a moderate level of rude topics and swearing, as well as severe cruelty, while the presence of nudity is assessed in a very weak form, and the image of sex is completely absent.
Starfield is released on September 6 exclusively on Xbox Series X|S and PC, as well as in a Game Pass subscription.
On June 11, Bethesda will hold a detailed presentation of the game separately from the Xbox summer showcase.
