Ubisoft, in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games, shared a first look at gameplay for Star Wars Outlaws, the first open-world Star Wars game that launches on Xbox Series X|S consoles, PlayStation 5 and Windows PC through Ubisoft Connect in 2024.
With development led by Massive Entertainment, Star Wars Outlaws will invite players to experience the Star Wars galaxy like never before through an original story set between Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. As the Galactic Empire relentlessly pursues the final defeat of the Rebel Alliance, the criminal underworld thrives. Fans will play as cunning scoundrel, Kay Vess, brought to life by Humberly González, and her loyal companion Nix, played by Dee Bradley Baker (Star Wars: The Bad Batch™), as they attempt one of the greatest heists the Outer Rim has ever seen. Seeking the means to start a new life, players will join Kay and Nix as they fight, steal, and outwit their way through the galaxy’s crime syndicates and join the galaxy’s most wanted.
Cunning scoundrel Kay Vess and her companion Nix travel across the galaxy to distinct locations, both iconic and new, from the humid jungles of Akiva to the windswept savannah of Toshara. Kay will explore bustling cities and cantinas, race across sprawling outdoor landscapes on her speeder, and pilot her ship the Trailblazer through the wilds of space. When things go awry, the Trailblazer will also help them chase, evade and attack to gain the upper hand in thrilling dogfights with The Empire and other foes.
Kay and Nix can turn any situation to their advantage: use stealth and gadgets to retrieve valuables while undetected, distract enemies with a well-timed stunt, or engage in blaster combat in complicated situations throughout their journey. Kay and Nix will join forces with a cast of outlaws along the way, including battle-hardened droid ND-5, played by Jay Rincon. While stealing valuable goods, infiltrating secret locations, and outwitting enemies, they will need to carefully consider their choices, as each move will influence Kay’s ever-changing reputation.
For players willing to take the risk, the galaxy is full of opportunity.
