Starfield has been classified by the Australian Classification Board as a "restricted" game due to its content.
Due to the presence of "moderate impact" language and themes, "strong impact" violence, "very light impact" nudity, and a "high impact" for the drug abuse, Bethesda's sci-fi RPG achieved this classification.
Both The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4 in Australia have been labeled as "15+" (in Europe, PEGI has assigned "18+"), indicating that Starfield might include more violence and themes not appropriate for young people than in previous games.
Starfield will be available on Xbox Series X|S and PC starting on September 6, 2023. It will be included in the PC and Xbox Game Pass catalog at launch. A YouTube channel has released an enhanced version of the gameplay shown in the latest trailer.
