You Better Have Plenty Of Storage Space For Starfield

Starfield Storage Space

During Sunday’s Starfield Direct, so much was covered that it felt like Bethesda needed more time to get to it all. That said, one thing that wasn’t mentioned until after it ended was just how big the actual game was going to be, and the storage space needed to install Starfield.

With the game up for pre-order on both PC and Xbox, it was revealed that Starfield requires 125GB of free space to install. That’s 12.5% of the total available base storage of the Xbox Series X and 24.4% of the free storage on a base Xbox Series S.

If you decide the get the game for PC, Bethesda requires the game to be installed on an SSD. That means those that are still somehow sticking with older HDDs will have to finally upgrade if they want to play.

Starfield standard edition is available for $69.99. Those who want five days early access can preorder the premium edition of the game for $99.99. And if you really want to splurge, you can purchase the Constellation Edition of Starfield that includes a custom watch like the one within the game.

If you don’t want to do any of that, Starfield will be available day one on Xbox Game Pass when it launches on September 6.
