Here’s where you can pre-order Starfield

We’re less than a month away from the launch of Starfield, the latest open-world role-playing game from Bethesda Softworks. Starfield comes to Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass on Sept. 6 (but not to the new Game Pass Core tier), meaning that subscribers will be able to play it for no extra charge. However, purchasing a copy for Xbox Series X will get you a bunch of in-game cosmetics and other items — only some of which are included with the Game Pass version. Some retailers are offering exclusive pre-order bonuses, like a Steelbook case and other premium goodies, when you reserve a copy ahead of launch day.

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 the game is a bit light in terms of extras, but pre-ordering the game nets you the Old Mars Skin Pack, which includes:

  • Deep Mining helmet and pack
  • Laser Cutter weapon

Starfield Premium Edition

Opting for the $99.99 Premium Edition gets you all the digital goods included with Standard Edition pre-orders, but you’ll also get some additional items:

  • 5 days of early access
  • 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

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, as well as early access. For $34.99, you’ll get the following:

  • a SteelBook case
  • a Constellation patch
  • Starfield: Shattered Space
  • 5 days of early access
  • 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. Pre-ordering Starfield’s Constellation Edition will get you all the cool digital stuff, 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 (Aug. 11): Checked pricing and availability for all versions of the game, noting that the Constellation Edition is no longer available.
