It may seem like something from the future that gamers have always dreamed of, but you’ll be able to play the newest Xbox exclusive without needing an Xbox or PC. Yes, Starfield is just around the corner (in fact you can already play it in early access), and thanks to the bet that Microsoft has been making with the game in the cloudyou can play his latest bombshell without spending a penny on hardware.
As? Very easy. All you need is a compatible device and a small subscription fee, and you can play Starfield wherever and however you want. And it is that the new Bethesda game will be available on Xbox Cloud Gaming, which means that the game can be played in the cloud from a TV, a mobile, a modest PC… or on Mac
Or even an old console like the Xbox One. You have to make sure that the device you want to play on is compatible with the Xbox app, or the browser on your PC/Mac is up to date.
You only need a TV to play Starfield
In fact, if you have a modern Samsung TV, knowing that you have an Xbox capable of playing Starfield, you’ll only need a compatible controller. For some time now, some of Samsung TVs have included Gaming Hub, which is compatible with Xbox cloud gaming, so if you have a Game Pass subscription, you will be able to start playing Starfield as soon as it launches in a few days… directly on your TV. The only thing to keep in mind is that your TV must be a Samsung Smart TV from 2021 or later, with software version 1300 or higher.
In addition, on all devices that can run the Xbox cloud game, including the browsers of the most modest PCs, it includes Cloud save support. So it allows you to transfer your game progress to a PC or Xbox console if you later get one… or want to change devices.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate
With the 3-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate you combine two subscriptions in one: you have access to hundreds of games, including Starfield, and to play in the cloud. New content every month. Play exclusive titles from the day of launch.
Try Amazon Prime completely free for 30 days (later €3.99/month). The subscription includes advantages when making purchases at Amazon and its services, such as free same-day shipping, access to exclusive offers, Twitch Prime or access to Amazon Prime Video totally free.
The only requirement, beyond this, is to have an active subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which is the one that gives access to the game in the cloud and to Starfield at its launch, and an Xbox wireless controller or a DualShock 4 from Sony. You can check if your mobile or your PC/Mac browser is compatible in this list.
