The gaming world is abuzz with excitement over the upcoming release of Star Wars Outlaws, the latest game set in the beloved galaxy far, far away. Developed by Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment, the game promises to take players on a thrilling adventure through both familiar and brand-new locations within the Star Wars universe.
Creative director Julian Gerighty recently spoke to GamesRadar about the process of building the world of Star Wars Outlaws. He revealed that the game will feature a mix of iconic planets that fans of the franchise will recognize, as well as completely new and exotic locations for players to discover. Each of these locations has been carefully selected to fit into the story of the game’s protagonist, Kay Vess, and to provide unique and interesting gameplay opportunities for players.
Gerighty emphasized that the world of Star Wars Outlaws is not procedurally generated, but rather “handcrafted” to ensure a rich and immersive experience for players. This means that players will have the opportunity to explore a wide variety of planets, each with its own distinct themes and environments. The game’s story takes place between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, offering a fresh perspective on the Star Wars universe.
The game’s protagonist, Kay Vess, is described as a “rookie hustler” who is searching for freedom and a new life with Nix. As players guide Kay through the game, they will have the chance to experience a completely new story set against the backdrop of the Star Wars galaxy. Star Wars Outlaws is set to be released on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC, with a launch expected at the end of this year.
With its combination of familiar and new locations, handcrafted world design, and original story set within the Star Wars universe, Star Wars Outlaws is shaping up to be a highly anticipated addition to the world of gaming. Fans of the franchise can look forward to embarking on an exciting adventure that offers a fresh perspective on the beloved galaxy far, far away.
