Starfield Has Officially Gone Gold, Xbox & PC Preload Dates Revealed

It's FINALLY almost time! Bethesda has announced today that Starfield has officially gone gold ahead of its release in early September, and preloads for the game will be available on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S this week.

Specifically, you can preload Starfield on Xbox Series X|S and the Xbox App for Windows PC beginning Thursday, August 17th, while preloads for the Steam version will begin on Wednesday, August 30th.

As previously revealed, it looks as though the download size for Starfield will be around 125GB, so you'll need plenty of space! Fortunately you've got a couple of weeks to figure it out, as Starfield doesn't launch with Xbox Game Pass until September 6th, with the early access version arriving on September 1st for anyone who wants to pay for it.

We're now on the final stretch as Bethesda prepares for Starfield's arrival, and it's a very exciting time to be an Xbox owner and Game Pass subscriber! Let's cross all of our collective fingers that it can live up to the hype this September.
