Mass Effect: Andromeda - BioWare Exec Talks About Nudity In The Game
Some of the previous games had "partial nudity."
Every entry in the Mass Effect series has been rated M for Mature in North America. The rating for the latest game, Mass Effect 3, noted that there was "partial nudity." Mass Effect: Andromeda's ESRB rating has not been published yet, but BioWare GM Aaryn Flynn has now suggested that you can expect it to get an M rating, in part because the game is upping the ante in the nudity department.
Here is what he said on the subject (via Polygon):
Remember. We lost the "partial nudity" rating and got full "nudity". https://t.co/yauGf9Cnol— Aaryn Flynn (@AarynFlynn) February 26, 2017
What appears to have been a preliminary rating for Andromeda spotted by BioWare Social Network showed an M rating and mentioned "partial nudity." However, Flynn's new tweet suggests that the rating's language will be amended. With just a few more weeks to go before launch, we would expect the official rating to be published on the ESRB's website very soon.
It's also possible Flynn was simply joking around. We've followed up with BioWare in an attempt to get more details.
Flynn went on to joke that Andromeda, which will have "pretty good banging," is "totally softcore space porn."
Andromeda launches on March 21 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You may not have to wait that long to play, however, as a multiplayer beta is expected to launch at some point before then.
