Poll: Are You Buying The 'Early Access Upgrade' For Starfield?

Things have been a little quiet on the Starfield front since everything that happened in the wake of the Xbox Games Showcase last month, but we still want to know how you'll be tackling the game at launch, especially now that you've had a few weeks to sit on all of June's sweet, sweet information.

In and amongst the announcements was a pretty interesting reveal for the Premium and Constellation Editions of the game, along with a 'Premium Upgrade' that is no doubt aimed at Game Pass customers. A major pull with all of these bumper editions of Starfield is five days of early access gameplay.

The Premium Upgrade is of particular interest to us - given that we and many other players now access Xbox first party titles through Game Pass. Are you thinking of picking up the £31.49 / $31.49 Game Pass upgrade to play Starfield on September 1st, rather than waiting until the standard launch day of September 6th?

We're definitely considering it, especially when you factor in that the upgrade will also provide access to the 'Shattered Space Story' expansion that's due sometime after launch. If that's anything like a typical Bethesda Game Studios expansion, you can expect it to contain a pretty hefty amount of content!

Well... are you thinking about purchasing any of these upgraded versions of Starfield to gain a generous chunk of early access playtime? Vote in the poll down below and let us know!
