The standard physical edition of Starfield is available to buy at numerous major retailers.
It's important to note that Starfield is a day one Xbox Game Pass, so subscribers don't need to purchase a copy of the game. It's also an Xbox Play Anywhere title, so you'll get to play on both Xbox and PC if you buy a digital copy or play via Game Pass.
The Premium Upgrade Edition does not include the base game. Instead, it’s meant to serve as an add-on to the standard edition that includes the Premium Edition in-game goodies as well as a couple of physical collectibles (if you buy the upgrade edition from a brick-and-mortar retailer). Here’s a look at what you’ll get:
Access to Starfield Digital Art book & Original Soundtrack
If you pick up a physical edition, you’ll also get a steelbook display case and a Constellation patch. Remember, you’ll also need to pick up the base game--but if you want a few collectibles but don’t want to spring for the expensive Constellation edition, this is a great way to go.
The Premium Upgrade Edition is a great option for Game Pass subscribers, too. You can get some goodies for just $35 and enjoy the game without having to buy it separately.
If you want to snag the Constellation Edition of Starfield, you’ll need to stay vigilant. It sold out at most retailers almost immediately after being released. Here’s what comes with your $300 investment:
The Starfield Xbox Controller isn’t just the best-looking item on this list--it might be the best-looking Xbox controller available today. With a retro-futuristic design, the gamepad offers a white faceplate, red accents, and gold D-pad. It also features a rainbow around the Home button and a bunch of gray lines throughout the controller that look like a blueprint or electrical diagram. It’s a good-looking controller by all accounts, and that’s probably why it’s so hard to find in stock.
Note that Antonline and Newegg just restocked these--so rush over and grab one while you can.
Much like the controller, the Starfield Xbox Headset uses a white, red, and gold color palette. Aside form its gorgeous design, this is a standard Xbox Wireless Headset. That means you’ll get a crisp boom mic, plush earcups, on-ear controls, and support for Dolby Atmos.
If you need a bit of extra space for your Xbox, consider picking up the Starfield Game Drive. The external storage drive is available in 2TB, 5TB, and 8TB formats--though it’s important to note that you can’t load Starfield from this drive. Instead, consider using it to store your old Xbox One games, as these can be launched directly from an external drive (as opposed to Series X games, which can only be launched from an internal drive). Better yet, you can use it for your PC as a normal external HDD.
