Bethesda's Starfield is probably one of the most anticipated video games in recent years. And the good news for Samsung smart TV and smart monitor owners is that they won't need a dedicated gaming PC or a console to enjoy this upcoming role-playing game.
Samsung announced today that Starfield is coming to its smart TVs and monitors through the Gaming Hub service. In other words, Starfield is coming to Xbox Game Pass, and as long as you have access to the Gaming Hub cloud-based service, an Xbox subscription, and a gaming controller, you will be able to pick up Starfield on September 6 and start exploring Bethesda's new Sci-Fi world.

Bethesda is “beyond excited” for Samsung TV users to try the new game
Bethesda is the same developer behind popular titles such as The Elder Scrolls and Fallout series. The new game, Starfield, stands out because it's the developer's first new intellectual property in 29 years.
Starfield is a space-themed action role-playing game that lets players embark on Sci-Fi adventures and explore new worlds. The game is said to have 1,000 procedurally generated planets ready to be explored (some of which host hand-crafted locations). Players will use their spaceships to travel to these planets, gather resources, and uncover new locations. Some are highly advanced, but others can be primitive.
Senior VP and Head of Publishing at Bethesda Softworks said “Starfield introduces players to a massive new universe, one that will look amazing on Samsung's TVs & gaming monitors.” Regarding Gaming Hub, Bethesda said “The opportunity to stream the game directly through Samsung products allows us to reach even more players. Our team is beyond excited to get Starfield into the hands of gamers across the globe.”
Gaming Hub is a cloud-based gaming platform embedded in select Samsung smart TVs, monitors, and even the 2023 Freestyle projector. Through Gaming Hub, users gain access to and can play thousands of games via cloud technology and services like Xbox Game Pass, NVIDIA GeForce Now, Arcade Antstream, Luna, Utomik, Blacknut, and others.
The list of devices supporting Gaming Hub continues to grow. Samsung has just announced two new curved gaming monitors, the 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9 (the world's first dual UHD gaming monitor) and the refreshed Odyssey Ark.
