UPDATE – According to a tweet from the @Xbox Twitter account, Bethesda will be hosting “exclusive theatre presentations” of Starfield. Hopefully, this means we’ll see even more Starfield details prior to Early Access. Original story follows.

Starfield fans are eagerly awaiting the September 6 release of Starfield, and the Early Access date with premium pre orders from September 1. However, fans could get an even earlier preview at the Starfield Gamescom 2023 show following an announcement that Bethesda would be in attendance.

Gamescom is arguably one of the largest gaming events of the year, allowing the gaming community to play the latest games, access exclusive showcases, and pick up all the best merchandise.

Starfield fans weren’t certain we’d get another preview of Starfield until its September release. However, that all changed with the latest Gamescom tweet:

It has not yet been confirmed how much of Starfield we will get to see at Gamescom, but Gamescom will announce “more details soon.”

While unconfirmed, it seems highly likely that Starfield will be a playable feature at Gamescom 2023 given the sheer anticipation surrounding Bethesda’s latest epic. Even if that’s not the case, it’s almost certain that we’ll hear even more details about Starfield from developers like Todd Howard and Xbox Boss Phil Spencer in a final Starfield showcase or interview.

Gamescom 2023 runs from August 23 to August 27, giving Bethesda four days to ramp up the excitement surrounding Starfield days prior to the launch of Early Access. If you want to get into Starfield early, you’ll want to secure your premium copy with the best Starfield pre order deals.
