What does Starfield’s Premium Edition have?

Starfield Edition Differences

Pre-order Bonus

Before we talk about the different editions, it's always worth noting the pre-order bonus, as this applies to both editions! By purchasing Bethesda's Starfield before its official release, you can get the Old Mars Skin Pack, which will change your looks to fit that of a miner in the world!

By pre-ordering any Starfield edition before release, you will get the following items:

  • Laser Cutter (Old Mars Skin Pack)
  • Deep Mining Helmet (Old Mars Skin Pack)

Deep Mining Pack (Old Mars Skin Pack)

Standard Edition

It's finally time to enjoy a brand-new Bethesda IP for the first time in what feels like forever — it's been 25 years! Developed and published by Bethesda, jump into the universe of Starfield and explore not only a world unlike our own but an entire universe and galaxy!

After months of silence, the Starfield Direct over Summer Game Fest 2023 gave us a lot of insight into the game! With 45 minutes of gameplay footage and developer narrations, we learned pretty much everything we were curious about! From space travel to on-foot gameplay and exploring over a thousand planets, make sure you check out our writer's overview on the direct here.

By purchasing the Standard Edition, you'll get the following items:

  • Starfield Base Game
  • Laser Cutter (Old Mars Skin Pack) — Only before the 6th of September
  • Deep Mining Helmet (Old Mars Skin Pack) — Only before the 6th of September

Deep Mining Pack (Old Mars Skin Pack) — Only before the 6th of September

Premium Edition

The Premium Edition (which, let's be real, should have been called Galaxy Explorer or something at least!) has a vast amount of additional content, especially with one particular item eager players are going to desperately want…

The first and likely most attractive item of the bunch for some is the five-day early access to the title. Although Starfield releases on the 6th of September globally, owners of the Premium Edition get to start their journey on the 1st of September — nearly a whole week before everyone else! This means that you won't have to wait, and you'll get to explore the cosmos quite soon in comparison to those who don't go for this version!

Of course, not to forget access to the upcoming expansion, the Shattered Space Story! As soon as this DLC releases, you will have instant access to it to enjoy even more of the main narrative that Starfield has to offer.

You'll also get a skin pack called the Constellation Skin Pack for your Premium Edition purchase, which gives you access to the Equinox Laser Rifle, Spacesuit, Helmet, and Boost Pack! You'll look as ready as ever to explore the constellation whilst equipped with these items.

And finally, you also get the Starfield digital artbook and original soundtrack, which is always a nice addition for aficionados of games that want to learn a bit more or incorporate the title outside of game time!

For purchasing the premium edition, you get the following items:

  • Starfield Base Game
  • Laser Cutter (Old Mars Skin Pack) — Only before the 6th of September
  • Deep Mining Helmet (Old Mars Skin Pack) — Only before the 6th of September
  • Deep Mining Pack (Old Mars Skin Pack) — Only before the 6th of September
  • Five-day Early Access
  • Shattered Space Story Expansion

  • Equinox Spacesuit (Constellation Skin Pack)
  • Equinox Helmet (Constellation Skin Pack)
  • Equinox Boost Pack (Constellation Skin Pack)

Now that you know everything about the various editions of Starfield, it's time to make your decision! Whether you go for the base game or the Premium Edition, may you have a great time exploring the universe!
