Star Wars Outlaws story

Star Wars Outlaws is set in the period between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Players will get to step into the shoes of rogue Kay Vess, the game’s main character. Along with her sidekick, Nix, she will fight her way through the “galaxy’s crime syndicates” and attempt to pull off “one of the greatest heists the Outer Rim has ever seen.”

During the game, you’ll meet new characters such as Jaylen, who the well-known Han Solo inspires. Not only that, but you’ll also encounter familiar beasts and droids from the Star Wars franchise, such as Rancors, AT-ST, and IG-11 combat droids.

According to Douglas Reilly, Vice President of Lucasfilm Games, Star Wars Outlaws is the “first truly open-world Star Wars game.” It promises an action-adventure story teeming with characters and planets both new and well-known to the Star Wars galaxy​.

Star Wars Outlaws gameplay details

In terms of gameplay, players can expect a third-person adventure with many possibilities in Star Wars Outlaws. The gameplay trailer shown during the Ubisoft Forward presentation revealed Kay Vess infiltrating a building to steal an item. There, she used Nix’s abilities to remain in the shadows.

In the next segment, however, she escaped on a speeder bike while being chased by Stormtroopers. The video also revealed players will be able to make decisions during their adventure and just a bit of space travel to offer a complete package.

The open-world aspect of the game is still a mystery, but evidence suggests players will be able to explore different planets during their adventure.

Ubisoft released the World Premiere Trailer of Star Wars Outlaws in July 2023, and since then, the developers have been providing small glimpses of what the game is about, as well as the gameplay and more.
