Starfield - the latest exciting offering from Bethesda has been hugely anticipated since its initial reveal at E3 2018, however it wasn’t until E3 2021 that a fresh trailer and release date were revealed. The action RPG comes from the creators of the beloved Elder Scrolls and Fallout franchises and is their first new IP in 25 years. Starfield promises to be a true next-gen experience set in a vast expansive space-themed world deemed The Settled Systems for players to explore.
Starfield's planned release window is now the first half of 2023 on Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, and PC. It was expected to launch on 11th November 2022 for Xbox Series X/S and PC but it has now been delayed until the 'first half' of 2023. On 12th May 2022, Bethesda released a statement on Twitter noting that more time was needed to complete both Starfield and Redfall to ensure fans would receive 'the best, most polished versions'.
Although this delay might come as a disappointment to some, we can look forward to an exciting deep dive at this year's Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase.. It also means you have more time to pre-order a copy of Starfield.
It’s worth noting that those with an Xbox Game Pass membership will have access to download the game on both PC and Xbox without the need to pre-order, as Starfield has been confirmed as a launch day release Game Pass title. If you're thinking of subscribing to Game Pass Ultimate for the first time, you can get your first month for only $1/ £1, after which the price is $14.99/£10.99 per month.
