Game dev calls Mass Effect: Andromeda “total softcore space porn,” apparently not joking

The Mass Effect series has always been praised for the player character’s choices. Whether it’s the route to save the universe or your personality, Mass Effect has never had trouble associating the player with their character’s perspective. So when it came time to talk about the down and dirty of relationships in its newest game, BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn made sure to bare it all. Mass Effect: Andromeda will be upping the ante when it comes to interpersonal interactions according to a recent discussion on Twitter.

The space-faring title can even be considered ‘raunchy’ in some areas if Flynn’s comments are anything to go on. “Remember. We lost the partial nudity rating and got full nudity,” he explained this weekend to fans, comparing the game to be more relative to ‘space porn’. Flynn even went on to say that he wasn’t kidding, not at all.

The response came to a couple of fans discussing their excitement about the game’s release. But Flynn felt the need to jump in, completely derailing the community into further speculation about the content he could be alluding to. Even so, most of his responses maintained their censor bar, although he did state that some of the dialogue in the game is “pretty steamy”.

As Polygon pointed out, Mass Effect Andromeda doesn’t even have an ESRB rating yet. The game coming to Xbox One, PS4, and Windows next month and if these comments are any indicator, we could be looking at an M for Mature. No doubt, a few more hands will be reaching at the shelves on March 21, 2017 to pick up the title for just sheer curiosity at this point.

For now, it can be considered official that Mass Effect: Andromeda isn’t meant to be played with your kids around, but it should definitely be an enjoyable solo experience.
