It’s exactly one month and three days since Starfield was fully launched last month. Despite that passage of time, Bethesda’s most recent open-world exploration RPG still retains its appeal among its players.
Xbox Game Studios correspondent Klobrille announced on X that Starfield remains one of the top 3 games on Xbox.
This is another milestone for Starfield, which reached 10 million players just three weeks after it was officially released. The early access period also turned 1 million players who bought either Premium or Constellation, and 5 million more were added on September 6, launch day.
These milestones, including hitting the top 3 in Xbox, make Starfield Bethesda’s biggest launch so far. It has even helped boost the sales of Xbox Series S and Series X consoles in the United Kingdom in the last week of August, which ended September 2.
There are many features that players appreciate about Starfield, and these include a heartfelt tribute to app developer Alex Hay.
Alex Hay is a Reddit user who announced in March that he feels he won’t be around to play the game when it launched as he is already in palliative care for cancer.
A month later, his friend announced that Alex had passed away and invited Bethesda to contact him if they wanted to feature him in the game. What resulted is a digital note from Alex to all the Starfield players, which you can find and add to your inventory.
