Starfield is finally out after so much hype and waiting. The game feels extremely promising and has tons of content to offer to the players. You can literally spend hundreds of hours and still not explore everything. Since the game has a massive open world, players were wondering if they could play with their friends via cross-platform.

No, Starfield is not cross-platform. Since the game is a single-player-only experience, there is no need for the game to be cross-platform. It does not feature cross-progression elements either.

While some players were excited that the game might feature online elements, it is for the best that it doesn’t. The game will solely focus on single-player elements, and it would be extremely difficult to properly implement a multiplayer system in the game.

Does Starfield Have Cross-Platform/Crossplay?

Unfortunately, Starfield does not feature any type of cross-play or cross-platform support. In fact, you cannot even play with the players on the same platform as you. This is because it is a single-player game and it wouldn’t make sense – gameplay-wise and in general – to have cross-platform support.

The good news is that you do not need an active internet connection to play the game either. Other than the updates and the day 1 patch, you can play the game without ever connecting to your internet.

What About Cross Progression?

Unfortunately, Starfield will not offer cross-progression either. If you are playing the game on Xbox and want to switch over to PC, you’ll have to start a new save file. This is quite disappointing as the game is absolutely massive and it would be a huge time and effort loss to start all over again.

So, if you’re planning to play Starfield, make sure that you carefully choose your platform and buy the game there. Otherwise, you’ll have to start all over again. I wish more games allowed cross-save/cross-progression options as it saves a lot of time and effort.


There you have it, that’s everything you need to know about “is Starfield cross platform”. It’s quite disappointing that the game does not have any cross-play or cross-platform features. However, since the game is only a single-player experience, it doesn’t make sense to enable these features.
