Star Wars Outlaws is an upcoming single-player, action-adventure game developed by Massive Entertainment and published by Ubisoft. While it occurs in the same universe as the Jedi franchise, this game promises to be a much more open-world experience. Additionally, there will be vehicle combat, along with space fights and other mechanics that will give players a variety of different gameplay. The release date for the game comes in late summer, so before the big day let’s break down everything we know about Star Wars Outlaws!

Star Wars Outlaws Release Date

The global release date for Star Wars Outlaws is officially set for August 30, 2024. Currently, the game is too far out for us to know specific release times and if they will change based on time zones. Typically, Ubisoft games are not released all at once for players worldwide. Rather, they stagger the release for midnight in your specific time zone. We expect the same to hold true for Star Wars Outlaws, but we’ll post more specific information here once it’s been officially announced.

Additionally, if you pre-order the game, you can purchase an edition that grants you three days of early access. Therefore, with one of these editions, you could play Star Wars Outlaws on August 27, 2024. For more information on all pre-order bonuses, see below.

Star Wars Outlaws Platforms

Star Wars Outlaws will be available on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S. Furthermore, on PC the game will be available to purchase from Ubisoft and Epic Games store portals. Additionally, Star Wars Outlaws will also be available on Day One with a Ubisoft+ subscription.

You can play Star Wars Outlaws on the following platforms:

Star Wars Outlaws Story and Setting

SW Outlaws Story and Setting

The story of Star Wars Outlaws takes place between two of the movies from the original series, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Moreover, it occurs outside the main franchise story, where Jedi Rebels seek to take down the mighty Empire. Instead, the focus is on the protagonist, Kay Vess, a gunslinger with the ambition to attempt one of the biggest heists the Outer Rim has ever seen.

Explore distinct planets across the galaxy, both iconic and new. Risk it all as Kay Vess, an emerging scoundrel seeking freedom and the means to start a new life, along with her companion Nix. Fight, steal, and outwit your way through the galaxy’s crime syndicates as you join the galaxy’s most wanted.

Official Description

The developers have promised that players will visit some familiar Star Wars locations, including Tatooine. Additionally, there may be some familiar faces, with quick glimpses of Jabba the Hut seen in the most recent story trailer.

This massive heist will target one of the Outer Rim’s most powerful crime bosses, Sliro, who has hired a bounty hunter to take Kay down. Can Kay evade their traps and manage to escape with not only her life but her freedom?

Star Wars Outlaws Gameplay

Unlike the light saber duels, a regular feature in the Jedi: Fallen Order and Survivor games, Star Wars Outlaws Kay is a gunslinger whose combat focuses primarily on ranged shooting with a blaster. Additionally, you will regularly engage with stealth mechanics in this Outlaws game. You’ll also have an assortment of gadgets and equipment Kay can use to get in and out of trouble. Moreover, you can use Kay’s companion, Nix, to distract enemies or interact with the environment without alerting nearby guards.

Additionally, combat will extend to other areas. The speeders have already appeared in various trailers. Moreover, while they are likely used to hasten your travels across planets from one location to the next, they won’t make you invulnerable to attack. High-speed combat will be a feature of Star Wars Outlaws, and you’ll have to use your skills to control your speeder, dodge attacks, and fire your volleys in return.

Finally, another exciting feature of Star Wars Outlaws will be space combat. Kay’s ship is called the Trailblazer, and while its primary purpose is to take her wherever she needs to go, it’s also essential that she be prepared for attack. The developers at Massive Entertainment have done their best to make the chaotic nature of space dogfighting as accessible as possible. A new ‘chase-cam’ control will let you automatically track enemy ships so that you can focus on aim and firing against your opponent.
