Yesterday, on Starfield’s official release day, the game had over a million concurrent players at one point.
Xbox head Phil Spencer said this on social media. He confirms that this relates to concurrent players on all platforms combined – namely Xbox Series, PC, and Game Pass. “Thank you to Bethesda Game Studios and all the players who helped us reach this milestone.”
There are no details on how many people are playing Starfield in total. Microsoft’s current record for a game is Forza Motorsport 5, which attracted more than ten million players in a week.
Starfield was officially released yesterday for Xbox Series consoles, PC and Game Pass, although people with the Premium or Constellation Edition have been able to get started since last weekend. Lars Cornelis gave the game a score of 9 in his Gamer.nl review: “Skyrim in space doesn’t do Starfield justice, but at the same time it’s the perfect description of this complete package. Starfield is so large, diverse, and detailed that it’s hard not to get lost in this world. Not everything is perfect, but the negatives are completely outweighed by the positives. In short, a typical Bethesda game. But in space.” Read ten essential tips for beginners here.
