Starfield Shattered Space release date: When will Starfield’s first DLC go live?

At least it's 2024, right?

Ever since Starfield launched in September 2023, players have eagerly awaited the arrival of the spacefaring title’s first DLC release, Shattered Space—or even just any release date news directly from Bethesda Studios.

While we’re still waiting on an exact release date for the first Starfield expansion, we do have a confirmed release window for the Shattered Space.

When will Starfield‘s Shattered Space DLC be released?

In April 2024, Todd Howard confirmed the Shattered Space DLC for Starfield will be released in the fall of 2024—sometime between September and November this year—in an interview with Kinda Funny Games.

The official trailer for Shattered Space, shown during the Xbox Showcase during Summer Game Fest in June, did not give a specific date, but confirmed the expansion would release this year.

What we can expect in the Shattered Space DLC

Shattered Space has a much scarier, more supernatural tone than the original Starfield game. Much of the imagery and audio featured in the trailer focuses heavily on House Va’ruun, and it’s been revealed that you will be able to travel to the “home of House Va’ruun” during the expansion’s story.

“Your fate will be decided by the Great Serpent,” according to an unknown voice. During the trailer, the player is seen engaging in combat with what looks like ghosts, and the final shot shows them in what looks like a large cloning facility.

In the same interview with Kinda Funny Games, Howard spoke of Starfield’s massive May update that added several much-needed features, such as city map improvements, gameplay options, shipbuilding features, and more gameplay options.

Players don’t have to wait until the fall to access new content though. Bethesda announced a wave of new content to be added the same day the Summer Game Fest trailer dropped, including a new questline centered on the Trackers Alliance.
