“Moving forward, we’re gearing up for a very promising lineup for fiscal year 2025, including the upcoming release of Star Wars Outlaws in 2024, which should be a major milestone in the video game industry, especially given the undeniable appeal of this legendary franchise that will be coming for the first time to the Open World territory, as well as Assassin’s Creed Codename Red, set in the long-awaited feudal Japan universe,” Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said on Thursday. “We look forward to revealing the full extent of the creative capabilities of Ubisoft’s teams, who are working hard to make these games a success that will live up to gamers’ expectations.”
What is Star Wars Outlaws?
Star Wars Outlaws is the first ever open world Star Wars game set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
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.
Kay Vess and her companion Nix attempt one of the biggest heists the Outer Rim has ever seen, in a journey across several planets, including familiar ones like Tatooine, Kijimi and Akiva, and never-before seen ones, like the moon of Toshara, which is inspired by the landscape of the Tanzania Savannah.
The game is a single-player, third person action-adventure game developed by Massive Entertainment and published by Ubisoft under license by Lucasfilm Games.
Massive Entertainment is known for Ground Control, World In Conflict, and the Tom Clancy’s Division games.
