During the latest Xbox Games Showcase, Ubisoft announced a new Star Wars game titled Star Wars Outlaws. The title is planned to release for Xbox Series X|S in 2024. Other platforms have not yet been specified. We’ll update this article if they are.
The game features a female protagonist by the name of Kay Vess, who seems relatively out of her element design-wise. She’s seeking freedom and a new life with her companion Nix. It’s set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Players will fight and steal their way throughout the galaxy.
Ubisoft confirmed the game is also releasing for PlayStation 5 and Windows PC through Ubisoft Connect in 2024.
Julian Gerighty, Creative Director at Massive Entertainment, stated the following:
“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. The time is ripe for a new outlaw to make their name, and Kay Vess is written in the stars.”
Douglas Reilly, the vice president of Lucasfilm Games, stated the following:
“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.”
Further details were not shared.
Ubisoft also confirmed that the game will see a gameplay walkthrough reveal tomorrow during their Ubisoft Forward event at 10 AM PT/ 1 PM ET. The new Assassin’s Creed will also be showcased at the event tomorrow.
