Ubisoft finally unveiled Star Wars Outlaws

A new story that will not include lightsabers!

It’s been over two years since Ubisoft said its team at Massive Entertainment, the studio behind Far Cry 3 and The Division, is working on a Star Wars open-world game. Today at the Xbox Game Showcase, Ubisoft hopped onto the wagon to reveal a cinematic trailer of Star Wars Outlaws with an official gameplay reveal during Ubisoft Forward at 10:00AM Pacific Time tomorrow, June 12, 2023.

Star Wars Outlaws will be released in 2024 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

Star Wars Outlaws tells a story of a scoundrel looking for a fresh new start in a galaxy far, far away, taking place in the events between films Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Players will take control of Kay Vess, voiced by Humberly González, accompanied by Nix, played by Dee Bradley Baker from Star Wars: The Bad Batch, to pull off the greatest heist in the history of the Star Wars universe in a brand-new story.

“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.”
