Read where to pre-order Starfield on both PC and Xbox for the release date November 11th.
Bethesda has announced the release of the highly anticipated new game Starfield for now early 2023. If you are reading this article, you are likely as eager to secure your copy of the game for as soon as possible. Fortunately, we are going to discuss here all the ways you can get Starfield pre-order available for you.
Starfield available to pre-order on Steam
For PC gamers out there looking to play Starfield, you’ll be happy to know Steam already has a dedicated store page for the game. It is clearly marked as “This game is not yet available on Steam”. But announces the planned release date as ‘2023’. This also suggests that the PC version of Starfield will be digitally available on PC as soon as other versions of the game are released at the same time. For other Bethesda franchises this has unfortunately not always been the case in the past.
Although the need to pre-order games through Steam is unnecessary, there is currently the ability the add to your wishlist or follow the game for continuing release news and updates. Just in case you happen to forget the day it hits release, Steam will do the remembering for you.
How to pre-order a physical copy
So far there are few stores claiming or providing pre-order options for physical copies of Starfield. Amazon.co.uk has an Xbox One downloadable code page, but with little content featured on the page; and appears to have been active since the announcement at E3 in 2018. No disc copies appear on Amazon, and this only seems to feature on the UK Amazon site.
GAME UK has a pre-order page for Starfield. It’s listed price for the Xbox S/X series version is £59.99; although it also states that “prices in GAME Stores may differ”. Other stores such as Base.com are stating the same price for preorder but with a current £10 reduction, bringing the total sales price to £49.99. It also included FREE UK postage delivery. How long this discount will be available is uncertain.
Gamespot’s Ireland based site (gamespot.ie) also features a placeholder page for Starfield pre-order on the Xbox One. The page allows you to add to cart, and offers home delivery and in-store collect options. The game is priced at €69.99 as of this time. We do give a word of caution however. Gamespot.ie is notorious for some particularly poor reviews. So early before the official release of Starfield, we recommend you take extreme caution before spending any money to pre-order the game on any website. Make sure you trust the site you are purchasing from and are happy that you are likely to receive the game as promised upon release.
Starfield collector’s edition pre order
Eager fans looking to reserve their copy of the game may be especially focussed on pre-ordering the ‘collector’s edition’ of Starfield. Although a collectors edition has yet to be officially announced by Bethesda, there have been a number of leaks and hints which suggest a special version will be released along with the standard edition. It will also be available to pre order at a yet to be announced date.
The Starfield Collector’s edition for pre order is rumoured to be presented in a custom designed case, made to reflect the players storage chest in the game. Is is also believed to include a wearable smart watch which will also reflect the design of the player’s in-game UI; similar to Fallout’s PitBoy. The watch will be fully smart phone compatible with Blu-tooth connectivity and possible game syncing according to some leaked patents and reports.
Starfield will be available on Xbox Game Pass from day one!
