Romance has been obviously a common feature in the "Mass Effect" franchise since the first game became available. BioWare allows players to have the game's protagonist build their relationship with several characters in the sci-fi RPG, which eventually allows them to sleep with that certain person. "Mass Effect: Andromeda" appears to continue the trend with its "full nudity" advisory. The developer's general manager even jokingly called the game "softcore space porn".

Aaryn Flynn reportedly responded to a fan on Twitter who made a comment about the game and its usual intimate scenes. Sources claim that most fans of the game know that the developer's comment was intended as a joke. However, there are some who speculate that Flynn was stating a fact about the RPG. Game Rant Notes that while the game has yet to be rated by the ESRB, some early analysis already indicate that the game will most likely get a Mature rating in most territories.

Fans of the series know that "Mass Effect: Andromeda" will obviously be focused on space-exploration and deep storytelling. BioWare has always delegated the romance and intimate scenes as extra side quests that won't really have an adverse effect on the main story of the game, maybe except for some side missions and loyalty missions with some characters. Based on the reports that the latest game will bare more skin it seems understandable for Flynn to describe the game as "softcore space porn".

The general manager also tweeted to remind fans that the game lost its "partial nudity" rating apparently in order to deliver the full monty, as reported by Polygon. The game's producer Mike Gamble was reportedly able to confirm that players will have lot of partners to choose and that the intimate scenes are going to be very detailed.

Moreover, BioWare's Aaryn Flynn has reportedly apologized about his "softcore space porn" comments about "Mass Effect: Andromeda". He admitted that his intention was to say it as a joke as explained by supposed use of the word "totally". However, his expectation that the word would "convey the sarcasm" did not deliver the intended idea. It appears that gamers will judge for themselves when the game comes out on March 21, 2017 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
