How to play Starfield early access, explained

Win the space race.

The brief glimpse at Starfield during the Xbox Games Showcase has gamers champing at the bit everywhere. The vast open world of space beckons with massive areas of exploration, detailed questlines, and even the ability to input and hear your own name. I’m sure nobody is going to abuse that fun little feature. The game looks to bring Bethesda back from a few of its less successful releases. The 25-year-long production will hopefully be bug-free and wonderfully rich. The release date is set for the 6th of September 2023, but for those who want to play before that, there is a way to play Starfield in early access; here’s how.

Gamers are understandably super excited about the upcoming release of Starfield. The game offers three levels of purchasing, as is tradition with triple-A games. Each offers different perks and even merchandise if you really fork out the dollars. To get early access to Starfield, it is necessary to purchase level two and up. Anything more than the Premium edition will grant you early access to the game five days before release.

The core game will set you back $70, which is sadly the norm for a triple-A game these days. Pre-ordering will only give you access to the core game, a laser cutter, and a deep mining helmet and pack. If you are willing to spend $99, you can get your hands on the Premium edition. This is how you get early access to Starfield. In addition, you also get ‘Shattered Space,‘ the game’s first expansion when it comes out, a skin pack, and digital copies of the soundtrack and art book.

For the superfans, there is a third option. The Constellation edition costs a gargantuan $300 but comes with everything from the Premium edition, including early access to Starfield plus some real-life, physical extras. You will also receive a steelbook case, a Starfield Chronomark watch, a watchcase, and a Constellations patch. Personally, nothing will beat the Skyrim Collectors edition back in 2011. It was available for $149 and came with an Alduin statue and physical artbook.
