Starfield is the highly anticipated Bethesda game that has everyone dreaming of exploring space and all of its factions. If you can’t wait until September 6, you can get early access to the RPG.

Starfield is going to launch with different editions at different price points. The key to getting early access is spending a bit more dough on a more expensive edition, which also comes with other incentives. Basically, you’ll want to pre-order certain editions if you want to play the game five days early.
