Ready to Explore the Universe? Starfield Preloads Go Live on Steam, Ensuring a Head Start on its Enormous File Size
As the highly anticipated game Starfield is set to release soon, players can take steps to ensure a smoother launch day experience. Here are some tips for preloading the game and avoiding potential delays:
Preloading on Steam: Players on Steam can start preloading Starfield, which has a hefty file size of 134.9GB. Preloading allows you to download the game in advance, so you can start playing as soon as it unlocks.
Xbox Owners: If you’re playing on Xbox Series X|S, preloads for the game have different sizes depending on the edition. Premium Edition owners will need to download 116GB, while Standard Edition owners will download 100GB. Consider starting the download early to avoid launch day delays.
PC Game Pass: PC Game Pass subscribers and Xbox Series X|S players have had the opportunity to preload the game for almost two weeks. If you haven’t already, start the download to ensure you’re ready to play on launch day.
Storage Space: Check your available storage space to ensure you have enough room for the game. If you’re running low on space, consider investing in additional storage, such as external hard drives or SSDs, to avoid last-minute storage issues.
Prepare for Delays: Despite preloading, launch day congestion can still lead to delays, especially if there are server issues. Be patient and prepared for potential hiccups, and keep an eye on official announcements for any updates or patches.
By preloading the game and ensuring you have sufficient storage, you can maximize your chances of diving into Starfield without unnecessary delays and enjoy the highly anticipated gaming experience.
