In an unprecedented move, Bethesda has revealed that while the game boasts an extensive galaxy of planets, a mere 10% of them will host signs of meaningful life, amounting to approximately 100 planets. The vastness of the unpopulated planets has led fans to speculate about the potential for vast post-launch downloadable content.

Starfield‘s release is slated for September 6, 2023, for PC and Xbox Series X and Series S. However, those who have secured pre-orders for the Premium or Constellation Editions will be rewarded with early access, unlocking the game on September 1. Additionally, Xbox Game Pass subscribers will also be able to venture into the far reaches of Starfield‘s universe from day one.
