Summary: Starfield, one of the year’s biggest games, will not be released on PlayStation 5 or Nintendo Switch. However, if you’re playing on an Xbox One, there is still a way to enjoy the game. By subscribing to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you gain access to Xbox Cloud Gaming, allowing you to stream Starfield on your older console.

If you’re an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriber, follow these steps to play Starfield on Xbox One:

  1. Navigate to the Game Pass menu selecting “My Games & Apps” from your home screen, then go to Apps, and open the Xbox Game Pass app.

  3. Select the game and choose the option to Play with a cloud icon.
  4. Starfield will start booting up and stream to your console from a Microsoft server.
