Starfield Gets Early Access Launch Day Review Embargo

Media now have copies of Starfield ahead of the game’s global review embargo later this month. Bethesda sent out review codes for the anticipated game yesterday just a day after the title went gold. The Starfield review embargo is set for 31 August at 21:00 CAT / 9 am PT / 12 pm PT / 5 pm BST.

Keep in mind that this review embargo drops 8 hours before early access customers get to play their game. It also drops 6 days before Starfield launches on Xbox Game Pass.
