Starfield Is Now An Xbox Play Anywhere Title
Microsoft has confirmed that Bethesda Game Studios’ upcoming action role-playing game, Starfield, will be an Xbox Play Anywhere title.
According to the official Xbox store page for Starfield, the game will be an Xbox Play Anywhere title. This essentially means that those who purchase the game digitally will own it on both Xbox and PC and be able to take advantage of cross-platform saves.
The Xbox Play Anywhere program has been offered for all first-party and select third-party titles on Xbox since several years. With the recent acquisition of Bethesda, it was uncertain whether Starfield would receive Xbox Play Anywhere support. We now have our answer, as owning the game digitally will provide access to the game and cross-platform saves across Xbox Series X|S and PC. Alternatively, players may also opt to subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and enjoy the same benefits while subscribed.
Previously, it was revealed that Starfield will offer a sizeable number of achievements. According to a screenshot that recently emerged online, the game will feature a total of 50 achievements. The screenshot showed the game’s achievement progress bar, which clearly indicated the number of trophies that completionists will need to unlock in order to achieve 100% progress.
Other prominent titles from Bethesda have also received a total of 50 achievements since Fallout 3, making this a bit of an unsurprising turn out events. Nevertheless, given the sheer scale of Bethesda’s massive role-playing game, 50 achievements seems like a bit of a small figure. Completionists will likely have their work cut out in order to unlock all of them and earn the 100% completion achievement.
Earlier, during an episode of Kinda Funny Xcast, Starfield director Todd Howard had stated that the game will not feature any land vehicles or creatures for transportation on planets, and that there were no plans of adding a Performance mode on Xbox Series X|S. In addition, he confirmed the existence of a space radio, but said that it would only be available in one localized area.
