Starfield With Moonlight

If you have a gaming PC, you can stream Starfield remotely whether you’re in another room or miles away from your gaming rig using Moonlight.

I tested this with my gaming PC in my house that has a GTX 1080 and AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 8-Core Processor.

I got a decent experience playing remotely to the ROG Ally even though this game is even hard to run with my 1080 at 1440p & FSR.

Starfield With Xbox Cloud Gaming

Xbox Cloud Gaming allows you to stream games from Microsoft’s data centers without installing the game on your device. The feature comes for free with Xbox Game Pass.

To play through the cloud, open up the Xbox App, go to the Starfield game page and click the Play button with the cloud icon next to it. (Your game can’t be installed to play via the cloud.)

Since you’re playing through the cloud you can lower the ROG Ally to Silent Mode to save battery.

The in game options don’t let you change any graphic settings besides film grain, depth of field and motion blur. You can’t even enable the large font menu option for devices with smaller screens.

The FPS counter showed 60 and above through my play time via Wifi but you can definitely feel the input lag and see the image quality degrade when playing.

Overall Starfield streaming through the Xbox Cloud is playable but playing natively on the ROG Ally still tops all your other options in my opinion.
