Finally, we have got some information about Star Wars Outlaws, this open-world game we’ve all been dreaming about will make its appearance at the end of this year. After much speculation and a galaxy’s worth of anticipation, Ubisoft, in collaboration with Disney, has let the rancor out of the bag about when we can expect to dive into this epic adventure.

In what seemed like just another day on the Disney Parks site, a post casually dropped the big news: “Star Wars Outlaws, the open world Star Wars game, is set to release late this year.” That’s right, no more vague “sometime in 2024.” We don’t have the exact date but at least we now know the time period for its launch.

The game is an invitation to step into the boots of Kay Vess, an up-and-coming scoundrel in the Star Wars universe. With her trusty companion Nix – an adorable axolotl-like creature that has already stolen the hearts of fans – you’ll navigate the treacherous and thrilling paths to freedom and a fresh start. Think of it as your chance to carve out your own legacy in a galaxy far, far away.

But what makes Star Wars Outlaws stand out? For starters, it’s set in an intriguing time frame – between “Star Wars: Episode 5 – The Empire Strikes Back” and “Star Wars: Episode 6 – Return of the Jedi.” According to the folks at Massive Entertainment, this period is ripe with opportunity and danger, thanks to a booming criminal environment.

And if you’re worried about biting off more than you can chew with another gigantic open-world title, fear not. Massive Entertainment has dropped hints that the Star Wars universe in Star Wars Outlaws will be more controlled and customized. Imagine exploring a terrain that’s about the same size as what we venture into two or three locations in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. That’s still a vast playground, but it sounds like it will be packed with detail and intrigue, rather than overwhelming expanses.

The excitement first kicked into hyperdrive back at the 2023 Xbox Games Showcase, where Star Wars Outlaws was first announced, followed by a gameplay presentation that had fans buzzing. The appeal of exploring iconic and new planets across the Star Wars galaxy, combined with a fresh storyline and a charming new sidekick, has set expectations sky-high.
