Starfield will have post-sex dialogue — and it looks to be incredibly weird

If someone asked us what Starfield was about, we wouldn’t quite have all the answers. However, if we were asked now, the response would be ‘Starfield is a sci-fi RPG from Bethesda that will have the weirdest post-sex dialogue known to man.’

Ever since the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) leaked the Starfield rating a couple of days ago, players have dissected every little piece of information about the upcoming game that they could find within the game’s rating summary. And there’s indeed a surprising amount to be found.

One such eyebrow-raising tidbit found in the summary is the reveal that there will be sex in Starfield. That isn’t too surprising on its own if you know Bethesda’s history, with the Fallout franchise often having brothels, sex workers, and other sexual situations involved in-game. Hell, some would argue it would be weirder if space didn’t have sex in it.

No, what’s got gamers (and us) tittering is the suggestive post-sex dialogue that’s apparently included in Starfield. The summary reads: “the game contains some suggestive material in the dialogue, and after sharing a bed with characters (e.g., “Life is a sexually transmitted disease that’s a hundred percent fatal”; “I’m all for getting a little wild, but next time let’s try it without the jetpacks”; “Talk about seeing stars, whew… that was amazing.”).”

Weirdest pillow talk we’ve ever heard of, but that won’t stop us from jumping into the metaphorical (and literal) cockpit of any alien who we might fancy in our space adventure.

Jokes aside, it does us perhaps a little insight on what we can expect from Starfield: romance for one, and if not with companions (which has been a staple in past Bethesda games like Skyrim and Fallout), then perhaps with other NPCs you can interact with.

Starfield will release on Xbox Series X/S and PC on September 6.
