Starfield Full Timeline and Lore Explained

Starfield is very close now, set to release in just a few short days for early access players and on September 6 for nonearly access players. It’s really exciting to see Bethesda release a new single-player RPG for the first time in years, not to mention the first new IP from the team in decades. With so much excitement behind it, you may wonder when you can dive into the new universe. Here’s what time Starfield releases in your region.

Due to the way time zones work, Starfield will technically release on different days, depending on where you live. You’ll still access it at the same time as everyone else, but it won’t be at the same exact clock time (god, time zones are confusing). With that out of the way, here are the exact release times that Starfield releases:
