Starfield players are already losing entire nights to the game

Starfield players are already losing entire nights to the game

Say goodbye to sleep when Starfield arrives!

In what promises to be Xbox’s most anticipated console exclusive since Halo Infinite, the launch of Starfield is just a couple of weeks away.

Bethesda says that Starfield has been twenty years in the making, and it promises to be the biggest game that the studio has ever created, quite literally. For example, not only does it feature over 1000 planets and 100 star systems, but it is also apparently a thousand times bigger than The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Yikes!

Fans have been planning ahead for weeks and many have already come up with the perfect sick day excuse for Starfield’s launch. However, that’s seemingly not going to be a problem for senior citizen gamers who will be able to play the game all day.

What’s more, an image was shared on Reddit of Twitter user MrMattyPlays, who is one of the lucky reviewers that has their hands on an early copy. The image featured Patrick from SpongeBob SquarePants with bloodshot eyes, implying a lack of sleep.

“This is the only legit reaction I'm seeing from early access people, that they are losing track of time and just getting lost in the game,” replied Reddit user stoiccentrist. “I can't think of a better selling point.” TryhardBernard added “Yeah this is like the fifth “I can’t stop playing to sleep” post/hint we’ve seen from reviewers. Very good sign.”

If there’s one concern that fans will have with Starfield is that Bethesda is known to release games in a buggy state. Thankfully, the sci-fi RPG has already benefited from pre-launch updates to ensure that the game releases in the best state possible. Oh and just a heads up, spoilers are in the wild, so please be careful when browsing social media posts.

Starfield has a release date of 6 September 2023 for PC and Xbox Series X|S. Unless you’ve pre-ordered the Premium or Constellation Edition. If so, then your release date is 1 September. Starfield will also launch on Xbox Game Pass.
