STAR WARS: OUTLAWS Gameplay Showcase Focuses on Galactic Scoundrels

Are you ready to head back to the Mos Eisley cantina? Ubisoft has just revealed a brand new gameplay trailer for Massive Entertainment’s upcoming Star Wars Outlaws open-world video game, arriving this summer. This is our best look at the gameplay so far. The events of the game are set right in the middle of the original trilogy, between episodes V and VI. Once again, the desert world of Tatooine will be a major location in the game, and it’s all about the scoundrels of the galaxy. You can watch the Star Wars: Outlaws Official Gameplay Showcase video right here:

And here’s the official synopsis for Star Wars: Outlaws from Ubisoft:

If you’re willing to take the risk, the galaxy is full of opportunity. Experience the first-ever open world Star Wars game, set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Explore distinct locations across the galaxy, both iconic and new. Risk it all as Kay Vess, a 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.

Star Wars: Outlaws key art showcases Tatooine and Jabba the Hutt.

Outlaws will also visit other familiar worlds from the franchise. These include Canto Bight from The Last Jedi, and Kijimi, the smugglers’ planet from The Rise of Skywalker. Outlaws‘ creative director Julian Gerighty told Entertainment Weekly a bit more about the game, saying “The pure scoundrel fantasy really takes flight when the galaxy is in chaos. The Rebels have lost the battle of Hoth and they’re on the back foot. The Empire is taking more and more power in the galaxy. That creates a space for criminal activities and criminal syndicates. That’s really the time of the underworld.” 

Star Wars: Outlaws comes to PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on August 30, 2024.
