Fortunately for all Game Pass users, Starfield will be a day one title on the service. If you’ve been following the Starfield saga for the past couple of years, this should come as no surprise. Starfield is going to be a Microsoft exclusive, meaning it’s only available on Xbox and PC at release. Whenever this happens, the game in question almost always comes to Game Pass at one point or another.

What all this means is that Starfield fans will be able to download the game the moment it becomes available on Sept. 6. Any Game Pass subscription will cover the addition of Starfield, so you don’t need to worry about what level of the service you’re subscribed to.
