Are you excited about playing Starfield but wondering if it is compatible with Xbox One? The answer is yes! However, there are a few things you need to know before you get started. The first is that you will need a subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate in order to access the game.
Since Starfield does not have a native version for Xbox One, the only way to play it on that console is through Xbox Cloud Gaming. Currently, this feature is exclusive to Game Pass Ultimate members.
In order to begin playing, you will need to go to your “My Games & Apps” section on your Xbox One, followed by “Apps.” From there, select the “Xbox Game Pass” app. You should be able to find Starfield in the app, or you can search for it specifically. Once you've selected the game, a pop-up menu will appear with the option to “Play” along with a cloud icon. Choose this option, and you will be able to play Starfield on your Xbox One. The game will be streamed to your console via Microsoft's servers.
It is worth noting that this option will not be available until Starfield is released on September 6th. Additionally, Xbox Cloud Gaming requires a strong and stable internet connection. If your internet is not reliable, you may experience visual issues and lag while playing. However, if your internet connection is sufficient, playing Starfield on your Xbox One should feel almost like playing the native version of the game.
This method allows you to try Starfield for yourself and decide if you want to invest in a new Xbox Series X|S or PC in the future to download the native version. So, get ready to dive into the world of Starfield and see if it's the game for you!
