Star Wars Outlaws is an open world action-adventure game developed by Massive Entertainment and published by Ubisoft.
It stars thief and scoundrel Kay Vess as protagonist, who must tussle with the galaxy’s criminal syndicates as she attempts to pull off one of the biggest heists the Outer Rim has ever seen.
Protagonist Kay Vess also won't get a lightsaber since this "isn't a story about the Jedi," per creative director Julian Gerighty.
The developers of Star Wars Outlaws want players to experience the journey of protagonist Kay Vess, and are saying that the game won't be too big to prevent players from doing so.
Massive Entertainment's open world Star Wars game will see players traveling to several hubs of scum and villainy.
Director Julian Gerighty also talks about the inspiration behind Toshara and building Tatooine using the concept of "virtual tourism."
Developer Massive Entertainment also confirms that there is no planet in the game that is fully procedurally generated.
More details have emerged on Star Wars Outlaws' Wanted system, Reputation system, and more.
Neither of Massive Entertainment's upcoming open world titles will be available on Epic Games Store or Steam, it seems.
Massive Entertainment's open world Star Wars game has finally been fully revealed- here's what you should know about it.
Players will be able to go from the surface of a planet and fly into space (and vice versa) without a single loading screen.
As hinted at in its recent gameplay reveal, the open world action-adventure title will indeed have a Wanted system, Massive Entertainment has confirmed.
Members of the development team at Massive Entertainment have provided new details on the open world title's recent gameplay reveal.
Played by Humberly González, Kay is a cunning scoundrel who'll tussle with the criminal syndicates of the galaxy on her journey.
"Action and consequence are pervasive in the experience," says the developer, and "moment-to-moment, the story's going to adapt."
The work-in-progress gameplay showcased third-person shooter, speeders, and much more as Kay flees from Imperial forces.
Players will play as Kay Vess, a "cunning scoundrel" who must "pull off one of the greatest heists the Outer Rim has ever seen."
Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment's open world Star Wars game has been officially unveiled.
Assassin's Creed Mirage and The Crew Motorfest will also have live reveals when the showcase airs on June 12th at 10 AM PDT.
However, reports indicate that development isn't progressing well, and the open-world title could slip into fiscal year 2025.
The Star Wars director didn't confirm or deny any potential new details this year and told fans to follow Ubisoft for official news.
"2023 is going to be huge for us," says Massive Entertainment's Julian Gerighty, who's creative director of the open world title.
Massive Entertainment's Star Wars project was said to be "at an early stage of development" in early 2021.
Insider Tom Henderson says that it's "probably the furthest title from release" and could arrive in 2025 "at the earliest."
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away- but when exactly?
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot says players will "will have to wait a bit" to learn more about the game.
EA no longer holds exclusive rights for the property, but will continue to be an "important partner."
