Starfield Game Pass: A spaceman can be seen

How to play Starfield on Game Pass? Starfield is one of the most anticipated games of 2023 and Bethesda Games Studios’ first new IP in more than two decades. Excitement for the RPG is high and with Bethesda now being a part of Xbox Games Studios, players are keen to know about the Starfield Game Pass release and how you can jump in.

Starfield will take players on an odyssey across space 20 years after the Colony War. With most Starfield factions at peace, the player is a member of Constellation, an organization of space explorers who traverse the stars and the many, many Starfield planets after an extensive Starfield timeline of events has taken place. But, how can you jump into your journey?

Starfield will, however, only be on Xbox Series X|S and PC, so if you want to play Starfield on Xbox One, you will need to play through the Cloud. While this is unfortunate news for those on Xbox One, it’s unlikely the last-generation consoles could handle Bethesda’s scope with Starfield.
