Starfield pre-order editions explained

There are four editions of Starfield that you can pre-order:

  • Standard Edition – Costs £69.99 / $69.99
  • Digital Premium Edition – Costs £99.99 / $99.99
  • Premium Edition upgrade – Costs £34.99 / $34.99
  • Constellation Edition – Costs £249.99 / $299.99

All of these editions include pre-order bonuses and extra rewards, but you still get the Standard Edition pre-order bonus when playing Starfield through a Game Pass subscription.

If you want five days early access to Starfield then you need to purchase either the Digital Premium Edition, Digital Premium upgrade, or Constellation Edition. These three editions are also the only ones to include the Shattered Space Story Expansion when it releases.

Standard Edition and the Game Pass version don’t get this first story expansion. You have to buy it separately when it releases if you want to play it.

We’ve got full details on all Starfield pre-order bonuses and extras detailed in the sections below.
