We know so little about it Star fieldonly that it’s from Bethesda, features stars and fields in some configuration, and that Microsoft and Xbox desperately need it to be a hit later redfall‘s pretty awful launch. But now, thanks a new ESRB descriptionwe know… honestly not that much anymore, but at least we now know there’s plenty of drugs, lots of gore, and possibly jetpack sex.
The ESRB recap begins with a description of who we’ll play as: “players take on the role of a miner tasked with finding artifacts across the galaxy.” From last year’s 15-minute gameplay showcase, we know these mysterious artifacts are a major plot point, but we still have no idea what they are, what they do, or why they’re so important.
After that, the description lists some generic activities you can do and the weapons you can use. It’s all standard space opera RPG fare – guns, lasers, bombs and oddly enough axes.
Where the description gets spicy is all the drug and sex activities. Apparently, inside Star fieldis there a drug called aurora that players can steal, sell, take and produce, with the description prompting a sequence where players can work in an illegal drug lab a la Break bad season 3. The description gets even funnier when the in-game sex references are mentioned. There’s “talk about seeing stars, practice…that was awesome” and “I’m all for getting a little wild but next time let’s try without the jet packs” as well as my favorite line, which wouldn’t feel out of place if uttered on an amateur night at the college poetry slam: “Life is a sexually transmitted disease that is one hundred percent fatal.”
Hopefully we will get more information about it Star field during the big showcase on June 11. It’s coming out on September 6, and I’ll be really pissed if jetpack sex isn’t really a thing.
