This means that when the game officially launches on September 6th, anyone subscribed to Xbox Game Pass will be able to immediately play Starfield at no extra cost. However, there’s also a 5-day Early Access period for those who buy Starfield Premium Edition, which costs 99,99€. This Edition includes the following:
- Starfield Base Game
- Shattered Space Story Expansion (upon release)
- Up to 5 days early access
- Constellation Skin Pack: Equinox Laser Rifle, Spacesuit, Helmet and Boost Pack

If you have already bought the Standard Edition of the game, you can buy the Premium Edition Upgrade for £34.99 / $34.99, and receive all the benefits. However, you can also buy the Premium Edition Upgrade even if you don’t own the base game. Namely, if you are subscribed to Game Pass, this option will be available to you in the Xbox shop. This means that you will be able to play the game on September 1st (or August 31st in the US) with the free Xbox Game Pass version of the game if you buy the Digital Premium Edition Upgrade.
