Starfield has gathered over 1 million players on day one

Many games have achieved impressive numbers this year and Starfield was bound to become another one in the list. If Baldur's Gate III, Diablo 4, Hogwarts Legacy, and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom were big hits at launch, Bethesda's space adventure has also caught the eye of a sizeable number of players on launch day. Microsoft CEO Phil Spencer has revealed that Starfield has gathered well over 1 million concurrent players across all platforms in a recent Tweet that also showcases the amazing scores that the game has got from the specialized press.



Of course, he forgot to say that Starfield is available on Game Pass, which makes the game technically free for those who are subscribed to Microsoft's gaming service, but that's not enough reason to ignore the game's merits. It's quite likely that these numbers grow over this weekend.

Bethesda has also confirmed that Starfield is its biggest launch of all time by revealing via Twitter that more than 6 million players have started to explore the secrets of a vast galaxy in the game.

Time will tell

Still, Starfield has a lot of work to do if it wants to stand above some of its predecessors. All Bethesda fans know that the studio usually needs some time to polish little details here and there but the experience delivered by the game is solid enough to deserve the attention and the money of any fan of the RPG genre. Starfield offers you a huge universe to explore as you please, even if you completely leave aside the game's story. Countless players are just immersed in spaceship building and customization or make up their own stories as they play.

Starfield has positioned itself as a solid contender for the GOTY award this year but it's going to be quite hard to get it as the number of important games released in 2023 is unusually large.
