Which platforms Starfield can be played on?

Starfield is currently exclusively released on Xbox Series X/S and PC. However, you can technically play it on other systems through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate with the help of cloud gaming.

Through cloud gaming, you won’t have to perform any local downloads and always get the updated version of Starfield. You will be playing it through outside servers, so any device that can run cloud gaming can be used as a platform to play it on.

How to play Starfield on mobile

You can play Starfield on your IOS or Android phone/Tablet through the Xbox Game Pass mobile app. Just take care to have them updated to the newest version. Starfield has also partnered up with Samsung TV. Now Game Pass Unlimited subscribers can play Starfield through their devices as well. That is definitely good news, but that’s not all.

The Steam Deck, the newest portable gaming device by Value also supports Xbox Cloud gaming. This means that playing on this device is also possible. But the framerate and overall performance, so far, are not amazing so we would not recommend it.
