How much sex will you have in Starfield? 'None,' says the Australian government

In space, no one can hear you scream. And in Starfield (opens in new tab), no one can hear you having sex. That’s because, according to Australia’s’ Classification Board (opens in new tab)—the agency responsible for rating videogames and other entertainment media in the country—there is no sex to be had in that particular dark void of space.

Starfield has been rated R18+ in Australia, meaning that it “is restricted to adults as it contains content that is considered high in impact for viewers.” The rating arises from the presence of drug use in the game, which the board has rated as “high impact,” the highest rating possible.
