Star Wars Outlaws has been announced by Ubisoft, and it is a fully open world Star Wars game that will span the galaxy. Coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC in 2024, Star Wars Outlaws is set between the events of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Players will be taking on the role of scoundrel Kay Vess, who is on a mission to pull off one of the greatest heists in history, while dealing with and defying criminal syndicates.
“When we first imagined the first open-world Star Wars game, we explored where and when it could take place, and quickly realized that we had all the right ingredients for the journey of a scoundrel. These outlaws live life under the thumb of the Galactic Empire, but can still thrive given the opportunities that the criminal underworld opens up for people looking to take advantage of the turmoil,” said Julian Gerighty, Creative Director at Massive Entertainment. “The time is ripe for a new outlaw to make their name, and Kay Vess is written in the stars.”
“With Star Wars Outlaws, we’re excited to deliver the first truly open world Star Wars game, with an action-adventure story filled with characters and planets both new and well-known to the Star Wars galaxy,” said Douglas Reilly, vice president, Lucasfilm Games. “We have been working closely with the talented team at Massive Entertainment, and with their years of experience in creating richly-detailed worlds, we’re excited for fans to be able to jump into the Star Wars scoundrel fantasy like never before.”
Gameplay for Star Wars Outlaws will be coming soon, with Ubisoft set to present that during Ubisoft Forward on June 12th, though Ubisoft has not said what will be shown in that gameplay footage.
