Starfield free download confirmed, just not for everyone

Starfield free download confirmed, just not for everyone

Those who pre-order certain editions of Starfield will later gain access to the game's first story DLC expansion.

It’s no secret that Starfield is set to be huge. In fact, it’ll boast over 1,000 explorable planets. I dread to think how long it will take us to finish the main campaign. Let alone reach 100% completion.

Starfield’s New Atlantis is set to be the biggest city that Bethesda has ever created. At the recent Starfield Direct, we also discovered that The Adoring Fan is back, NPCs will be able to call you by your real name, and the game has the ‘fewest bugs Bethesda has ever shipped with,’ which is a promising sign. Fans are blown away by how much Starfield’s graphics have improved since the 2022 gameplay trailer debuted, although some are dubious about the fact that it’ll be locked at 30fps. That’s not all, we got our first look at the game’s Star Map which is, quite obviously, huge. It’s going to get bigger though, as some players will eventually be able to access a ‘free’ story DLC.

Take a look at Starfield’s latest trailer below.

Starfield’s first story expansion has already been announced. We know that it’s titled Shattered Space but that’s about all we have to go on. If you’ve got your pre-order in though, you’ll likely have secured your access to the DLC, depending on which version you opted for. Access to Shattered Space is included in the pricey Constellation Edition, the Digital Premium Edition, and the Digital Premium Edition Upgrade.

These versions also include the Constellation skin pack, and access to a Starfield digital artbook and soundtrack. There’s no word on when Shattered Space will release but I’d imagine it would be a couple months after Starfield’s September launch date, seeing as they’ve already announced it.

The Constellation Edition also comes with five days early access, a steelbook display case, a Constellation patch, a Credit Stick with Laser-Etched Game Code, and a Starfield Chronomark watch and case.
