Starfield, Bethesda’s brand-new RPG set in space, looks absolutely breathtaking.

But, how do you play Starfield on Xbox One?

However, there is a way you can jump in and play the game if you are stuck with a last-generation Xbox and looking for more of the best Xbox games to play.

You can play Starfield on Xbox One when it releases on Wednesday, September 6, 2023, by subscribing to Game Pass Ultimate and streaming the game with Xbox Cloud Gaming included in your subscription. To do this, you will need the latest update on your console installed.

Once you have subscribed you can play additional games on top of Starfield via Xbox Cloud Gaming. After clicking on Starfield or any game icon with cloud gaming support, you will see a tab that says “Play” with a cloud icon next to it.
