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):

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.

The ESRB ratings for Mass Effect and Mass Effect 3 mention "partial nudity," but Mass Effect 2's does not.

Flynn went on to joke that Andromeda, which will have "pretty good banging," is "totally softcore space porn."
