2023 might be off to a rough start for Bethesda, thanks to Redfall's critical panning, but hopefully, we're shooting for the Moon (and beyond) with Starfield. As Bethesda Game Studios' first new IP in over 25 years, there are high hopes that we've got another Elder Scrolls or Fallout on our hands.

Xbox is accused of trailing behind PlayStation in terms of exclusives, meaning there's a lot riding on Starfield. Bethesda's Todd Howard has pitched it as much more than just Skyrim in space, but in case you were wondering, it sounds like those good ol' romance options will be here.

Does Starfield let you have sex in space?

We previously reported how the Starfield classification pointed to heavy drug use but no sex in space. Sorry for all you randy astronauts. Something doesn't add up, as now, it looks like some pretty raunchy sex will be part of your journey exploring her cosmos. 

As pointed out by PCGamesN, a new Starfield rating claims there will be "some suggestive material in the dialogue." This includes some cryptic voice lines that have more than a little curious. While the Australian Classification Board said there would be no sex, the Entertainment Software Relations Board (ESRB) suggests otherwise.

One line of dialogue reportedly says, "Life is a sexually transmitted disease that's a hundred percent fatal." Another says, "Talk about seeing stars, whew... that was amazing," however, it's one saying "I'm all for getting a little wild, but next time let's try it without the jetpacks" that has us scratching our heads.

What else does the Starfield rating reveal?

Starfield ESRB rating describes the sci-fi epic as follows: "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)."

As for what you're packing in your arsenal, there are "futuristic guns, lasers, axes, and explosives to kill enemies," with promises of "fast-paced" combat. That might sound great, but there's a small problem - we are worried the upcoming Starfield direct could announce a delay.

It's all pretty standard fodder, and if you've played any Bethesda game, you'll know it's the same story in different settings (fantasy, apocalyptic, space)...and that's why we love it. We're not sure how the logistics of jetpack sex works, but we're damn sure we're about to find out when we (hopefully) get to blast off with Starfield in 2023.
