As mentioned above, those who have pre-ordered a digital copy of Starfield can pre-load the game on Xbox Series X|S starting August 9, 2023. The digital pre-load should come with the latest update pre-installed. However, given that the pre-load will arrive nearly a month before the game’s release on September 6, 2023, it’s likely that some additional updates will be rolled out prior to launch.
Previously, it was reported that a fan site had attempted to piece together an approximate version of the galaxy map that will be featured in Starfield, based on pre-release video footage from the game. Bethesda released the first gameplay footage from the game back in June, 2022, which revealed that it features over 100 star systems. The footage included around 6 second of the galaxy map that will be available to players.
Approximately 75 star systems were visible in the footage, with a few of them bearing notable names. Among them were three stars stood as authentic: Sol, Alpha Centauri, and Porrima. This revelation indicated that Starfield’s world is inspired by and situated within the confines of the Milky Way. Consequently, the undertaking at hand involved reconstructing the in-game galaxy map from the data available in the video.
