Bethesda's new sci-fi RPG Starfield is on the horizon, and it seems some new information about the game may have been revealed.

On Starfield's official Twitter, the banner image for the account has been updated - revealing what appears to be the ESRB rating for the anticipated title. It seems it will be rated 'M' for Mature (17+) and contains violence, blood, suggestive themes, strong language and the use of drugs.

This is in line with the ratings of other Bethesda titles like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and entries in the Fallout series. An official description for Starfield's rating should be published on the ESRB in the near future. Earlier this year in March, Starfield was rated R18+ in Australia for containing "interactive drug use".

Xbox is hosting its Games Showcase on 11th June, and more details including "tons of new gameplay" is expected to be shown during the special Starfield Developer Direct. Xbox's boss has also mentioned how an update will be provided about the game's frame rate on Xbox ahead of its September launch.
