Mass Effect Andromeda is one of the most anticipated video games of the entire year. The ESRB has now rated the game giving us some interesting descriptions.
Mass Effect Andromeda has been rated M for mature players over the age of 17. The content descriptors are: “Blood, Nudity, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content, Violence”.
The rating summary says: “This is an action role-playing game in which players lead humanity to a new home across the galaxy. As players explore various planets, they use futuristic weapons (e.g., laser rifles, Cryo-beams, shotguns) and special abilities (e.g., concussive blasts, telekinetic pushes) to combat hostile alien races. Battles are frenetic, highlighted by realistic gunfire, explosions, and screams of pain; enemies sometimes emit splashes of blood when hit.
During the course of the game, the central character can develop relationships with crew members and engage in brief sexual encounters with them. These brief sequences (couplings) depict sensual caresses, sexual moaning, and hip gyrations; characters’ breasts and/or buttocks are sometimes exposed for prolonged periods. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” can be heard in the dialogue.”
As you can see from the latter end of the description, this game will have some heavy sexual content. Your character is able to romance a lot of people and aliens in the full game.
The game will be out on March 21st in North America and March 23rd in Europe. The game will be playable on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
