Ubisoft has recently announced that their new game, “Star Wars Outlaws,” is going to be the “first-ever open-world Star Wars game.” This game is set in the time between “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi,” providing players with an opportunity to explore the open world of Star Wars galaxy.
The First Open-World Star Wars Game
Although it may seem surprising that there hasn’t been an open-world Star Wars game before, the new release from Ubisoft is still a significant leap forward for the franchise. Previous Star Wars games have been divided into different areas, while “Star Wars Outlaws” offers an open world for the players to explore.
The Protagonist and Setting
The protagonist, Kay Vess, is introduced in the new cinematic trailer as a cunning scoundrel. She starts off as a small-time character in the vast galaxy, but she soon finds herself caught up in something much bigger than herself, as is often the case in the Star Wars universe.
The game is set between “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi,” which means that it takes place during the height of the Empire’s power. This gives players the opportunity to explore the world during a critical moment in the Star Wars timeline.
“Star Wars Outlaws” is set to launch in 2024 for PC and Xbox Series X/S. Although there hasn’t been confirmation of a PS5 version yet, it’s unlikely that Ubisoft would skip out on a PlayStation release entirely.
Ubisoft’s “Star Wars Outlaws” is set to be a groundbreaking game for the franchise, offering players the first-ever open-world Star Wars game. With a unique protagonist and a setting that takes place during a critical moment in the Star Wars timeline, fans of the franchise are excited to explore this new addition to the Star Wars universe.
