Starfield is now hours away from releasing for Early Access, so close you can almost touch it. With the long wait finally ending, Bethesda has done something out of this world to promote the galaxy-hopping sci-fi adventure. Some Starfield content creators have been selected to attend space camp for serious training!
To start playing Starfield on September 1 (depending on your location), you must purchase either the game's Premium Edition or the Premium Edition digital upgrade from the Xbox store. Otherwise, it will be September 6, when you can play the Standard Edition.
Starfield Space Camp
Content creators Astro_Alexandra, Filspixel, LilyPichu, and Myth received an essential mission before launch day. They have been tasked with astronaut training at Huntsville, Alabama, U.S.A, and will find out what astronaut recruits need to endure.
From Bethesda's announcement:
" Prepare for liftoff! Early Access for Starfield begins Sept. 1. As we count down to launch, we enlisted content creators Astro_Alexandra, Filspixel, LilyPichu, and Myth and sent them to Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama, U.S.A. At Space Camp, they put their skills to the test on what it takes to train like an astronaut as they prepare to explore Starfield's universe.
Watch their individual Space Camp experiences of these content creators on their channels:
Special thanks to Space Camp (spacecamp.com) and the U.S. Space & Rocket Center (https://www.youtube.com/rocketcenterusa) for showing us what it takes to be an astronaut for a day. "
The individual videos are all fantastic looks at some of the rigorous training that potential astronauts must endure. Constellation may contact some of these creators to enlist them after proving their mettle.
While visiting space camp, the team got to try out zero gravity simulators, experience what it is like to work on a ship in space and much more. It looks like tremendous fun, but doing it in actual space would be a much scarier task.
More fun promotion as we watch the final hours and minutes count down to Starfield's launch. Yesterday, Bethesda started their Explore Starfield event, where the community must track down all 1001 real-life billboards. We can't wait to see them all be discovered.
