Bethesda's acclaimed Starfield is currently on sale for a galactic 25% Steam discount at GreenManGaming

Starfield was one of the most anticipated Xbox and PC titles in recent years and is the first original IP Bethesda has created in over 25 years. Ever since its launch in September 2023, it has gone on to win the hearts of critics and fans for its immersive open-world exploration, gigantic sci-fi universe rich with intriguing, and addictive gunplay and space combat.

The MSRP of AAA video games tends to be very expensive these days, even for just a game's base standard edition. For example, the Standard Edition Starfield in particular has a lofty retail price tag of $69.99. Fortunately, Starfield's MSRP has recently gone down by a huge 25% discount at GreenManGaming for the PC version (Steam) thanks to Black Friday. It beats Steam's own 20% sale on Starfield. 

Of course, the cheapest way to get Starfield is to grab it on Xbox Game Pass or PC Game Pass for $10 per month — but if you want to buy it to own on Steam, this is the best deal we've seen so far.
