Mass Effect Andromeda, or Softcore Space Porn

mass effect andromeda mirandaMass Effect Andromeda’s GM, Aaryn Flynn isn’t too fussed about describing the upcoming space opera as a softcore space porn. This comes after the news that Mass Effect Andromeda’s rating is still up in the air, or in orbit, due to its inclusion of adult themes.

The ESRB had to backtrack on their provisional rating thanks to a change from¬†‘partial nudity’ to ‘full nudity’. An M rating (for blood, strong language, strong sexual content and violence) was in place provisionally, but that may extend to an A rating, which is adults only for 18+. But why? What is Bioware including in Mass Effect Andromeda?

While Mass Effect has a history of romantic encounters between the main player and his or her squad mates, being cited by Fox News years ago as being a ‘sex simulator’, it has always been above board. You’d never see any sign of a boob or cheek, but you get the idea that the crew cabins are turning on the air conditioning. Will we see just a little more in the new adventure?

While Miranda got the blood flowing in many a Mass Effect player’s bloodstreams in Mass Effect 2, we’re bound to run into a few romantic scenes over the course of our Andromeda adventures, but with who?

Mass Effect Andromeda will be responsible for launching a lot of rockets on March 21st in the US and March 23rd everywhere else. Don’t forget to pack some medi-gel!
