However, the most important decision that many Starfield players must make is whether to purchase the game outright for £70 or to purchase it through Xbox Game Pass.
Both choices have advantages, of course. Starfield can be downloaded for free if you already have an Xbox Game Pass membership. The moment you stop paying for your subscription, however, you obviously no longer have access to the game until you do so once more. For a game like Hi-Fi Rush, which you can finish in a few weekends, this is perfect. The fans of Starfield, however, are already preparing to lose many, many months of their lives to these changes of a game. So maybe it’s best to just pay the money up front.
But some resourceful gamers over on Reddit have discovered a very clever workaround. In essence? For the first few months, “rent” the game cheaply on Game Pass while you wait for the physical edition to go on sale, which will unavoidably happen soon. Starfield won’t always cost £70, whether it goes on sale around Christmas or simply decreases in value.
Play it through a few times on Game Pass without any mods, after which you can purchase it for a low price with DLC already included.
One more adds: “When I can get it for free, there’s no sense in spending $100 to get it six days early. The price will have undoubtedly decreased by half by the time DLC is released.”
