Listen to this Article:

We are a month away from the release of Starfield on Xbox Series XlS and PC. Players have been questioning when they can preload the game if they pre-ordered it digitally. You’ll be able to preload Starfield sooner than you thought thanks to an Amazon leak.


Preload Starfield on Xbox Series XlS

An Amazon listing shared you’ll be able to start preloading Starfield on Wednesday, August 9, 2023 on Xbox Series XlS. That is a little less than a month away from release, but gives players plenty of time to install the large download file.

When it comes to the PC version of Starfield, it is unknown when you can preload the Steam version.

What is the file size for Starfield?

As reported before, Starfield will require 125GB of space minimum to download for Xbox Series XlS and PC. We say minimum because Todd Howard confirmed that Starfield will have post-launch content that includes a Story Expansion. As always with video games these days there’s always new content added along with patch updates that make the games even larger.
