Is Starfield coming to Game Pass?

Starfield launched on Game Pass for PC on September 6, 2023. It was a day-one release for the subscription platform, meaning subscribers got access to the game from the moment it was released.

One slightly cheeky thing you can still do if you have an active Xbox Game Pass for PC subscription is to purchase the Premium Upgrade. You can only buy this $34.99/£34.99 upgrade on the Xbox store, but in doing so, you’ll get all the Premium Edition bonuses. While you’ve missed the window for getting early access to the game, you’ll still get the other bonuses. If you cancel your subscription, however, you’ll lose access to the Premium content until you re-subscribe.

That’s all there is to know about Starfield Game Pass. There’s plenty more information about the space game, including some much-needed info about the Starfield system requirements and which Starfield companions you’ll meet on your journey.
