Here’s where to buy Starfield

Here’s what you need to know about the galaxy-spanning RPG’s various editions

If you buy something from a Polygon link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Starfield is here. While people who bought the premium edition enjoyed a few days of early access, it’s now available for everyone.

In case you didn’t know, you can play Starfield with a subscription to Game Pass or PC Game Pass. But if you want to purchase a copy for Xbox Series X, you’ll get you a bunch of in-game cosmetics and other items — only some of which are included with the Game Pass version.

We’ve assembled all of the info you need to know, whether you want the standard version of the game, the premium edition, or the $299.99 collector’s edition.

Starfield Standard Edition

The $69.99 Standard Edition of Starfield simply includes the game and no bonuses. Buying the game for Windows PC via Steam through Fanatical with the offer code FANATICAL17 used at checkout will knock 17% off the total.

Starfield Premium Edition

Opting for the $99.99 Premium Edition gets you a bunch of digital goods not available to people who buy the Standard Edition:

  • access to Starfield: Shattered Space, the game’s first story expansion
  • Constellation Skin Pack (containing Equinox Laser Rifle, Spacesuit, Helmet, and Boost Pack)
  • digital soundtrack and art book

Buying the game through Fanatical with the offer code FANATICAL17 used at checkout will knock 17% off the total.

If you’re playing the game via Game Pass, you can opt to buy the Starfield Premium Upgrade at GameStop and Best Buy for more content. For $34.99, you’ll get the following:

  • a SteelBook case
  • a Constellation patch
  • Starfield: Shattered Space
  • Constellation Skin Pack
  • Digital soundtrack and art book

Game Pass subscribers can save 10% off the purchase price by buying the Premium Edition Upgrade through the Microsoft Store.

I personally would’ve called the $299.99 Collector’s Edition of Starfield the “Red Dwarf Edition,” but that’s just me. If you’re lucky enough to find Starfield’s Constellation Edition in stock, buying it includes all the cool digital stuff listed in the previous section, plus a lot more. It entitles you to a one-way trip off our doomed planet (just kidding). While you’ll have to remain trapped on terra firma with the rest of us, you’ll also be the proud owner of the following:

  • a Steelbook case
  • the game as a digital code (no option for a disc with the CE)
  • Starfield Chronomark Watch
  • Watch Case
  • Constellation Patch

The Constellation edition was originally available through GameStop and Best Buy but is currently sold out.

Update (Sept. 6): Starfield is here, so we’ve switched the language in this post to reflect that the launch day arrived, at long last.
