Will Starfield be released on Xbox Game Pass?

Since Starfield is only going to be released on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC, there is a very good chance you will be purchasing a copy of Ubisoft’s next big game on console. If you are an owner of the Xbox Game Pass, you are going to be even happier to find out that Starfield will be coming to the Xbox Game Pass the very first day the game is released on September 6.

This is going to be a huge moment for Ubisoft and their next big game is going to be available to even more gamers who own a subscription to the Xbox Game Pass. So, if you fall into the category of “Xbox Game Pass owner,” you aren’t going to have to worry about shelling out $69.99 come September if you are looking to play the game.

However, even if you own the Xbox Game Pass, you still might want to considering making a purchase. There are a couple of reasons for this. For starters, if you wait to play Starfield on the Xbox Game Pass, you are going to miss out on the pre-order bonuses. By making a pre-order, you will receive the Old Mars Skin Pack. The Old Mars Skin Pack contains the Laser Cutter, Deep Mining Helmet, and the Deep Mining Pack.

The other reason you might want to purchase your own copy is so that you can choose which edition you want to purchase. There are three editions of Starfield that you can purchase ranging from $69.99-$299.99. Spoiler alert, if you think you are going to get the Constellation Edition of $299.99 as part of Xbox Game Pass, think again. If you want the Premium Edition ($99.99) or the Constellation Edition ($299.99), that you are going to have to purchase yourself.

If you are fine with the basic Starfield video game and don’t care about getting any pre-order bonuses, you can wait till September 6 and play at no additional cost. With each blockbuster video game that releases on the Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft continues to show the gaming community why the Xbox Game Pass is worth every penny, and it is only getting better as time goes on.
