Starfield's first 'review' score has arrived unexpectedly early, and it's strong

Starfield's first 'review' score has arrived unexpectedly early, and it's strong

Try and act surprised

If you've been following Starfield as obsessively as most gamers have been the last few months, I would imagine you already know that the game is now in the hands of various press and content creators.

Multiple outlets - including us here at GAMINGbible - are currently playing through Starfield in the hopes of having reviews ready for 31 August. It's fair to say that expectations are sky high for this game. While some fans definitely see Bethesda giving critics the game two weeks ahead of launch as a good sign, others are planning to review bomb the RPG for no reason other than it's not available on PlayStation.

No matter what, conversations around the launch of Starfield are going to be super normal and relaxed and chill, obviously.

Take a look at Starfield in action below, as if you haven't watched footage of this game hundreds of times already.

While in-depth Starfield reviews won't be dropping until 31 August, some fans have clocked an early score (of sorts) has appeared on the game's Microsoft store page.

Would you believe that Starfield currently has a rating of 4.9 out of 5 based on a whole 14 reviews? I can't believe it either. It's unclear who's dropped these scores, but it's incredibly unlikely to have been any of the press or content creators who recieved codes earlier this week. For one thing they will have signed strict NDAs to keep their impressions under wraps until the end of the month. And even if these scores were from rogue players who got the code early, we all know they haven't had enough time with the game for high scores at this stage to be anything other than reactionary fanboy nonsense.

That's not to say I don't think Starfield is capable of bringing in some high scores, before the reactionary fanboys I just talked about decide to swarm me, I just mean any review at this point - good or bad - isn't really worth much.

Anyway! 31 August. Check back in for our Starfield review, and brace for the internet to have a completely normal one about other people's opinions.
