For Steam users, preload will begin on 30th August and will require 125 GB of available space.

Starfield remains a bit of an enigma even this close to launch, although some new details emerged yesterday courtesy of a Discord Q&A.

We now know more about its housing system, its jail, and the fact players can expect 20 companions to join them on their journey through space.
