A Closer Look at Ubisoft's Star Wars Outlaws

The game's demo and developers' insights unveil additional information about the upcoming game.

During the recent Ubisoft Forward event, Ubisoft unveiled a 10-minute gameplay trailer for Star Wars Outlaws, an open-world Star Wars game that takes place in the time period between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The trailer provided an in-depth look at the game's visuals, stealth mechanics, combat systems, vehicle driving capabilities, and more.

Following the showcase, some outlets, including PC Gamer, were able to get an early look at the demo and share some details about the upcoming Star Wars title. Additionally, Outlaws' developers spoke with GameSpot, revealing more information about the game.

During a conversation with GameSpot, Star Wars Outlaws' game director Mathias Karlson and narrative director Navid Khavari expressed their belief that the chosen time frame for the game provides an ideal backdrop to narrate the story of the main characters, Kay and her companion Nix, who find themselves entangled in the intense conflict between criminal syndicates that emerged following a galaxy-wide civil war.

The game's demo revealed that Star Wars Outlaws will feature various factions in the galaxy. Players will have the opportunity to carry out missions and fulfill orders from these factions, thereby improving their reputation with them.

However, relationships with different factions can also be compromised and damaged as a result of certain actions or decisions made by the players, so, according to Karlson and Khavari, players' actions can not only result in new opportunities but also introduce potential threats.

As shown in the demo, the protagonist Kay relies on her primary weapon, a blaster, which boasts various modes to adapt to different situations. In addition to her blaster, Kay will have access to other powerful blasters, however, they will be available only for a limited time.

Kay will have also her own ship in the game, which, unlike in the Star Wars Jedi series, she will be able to pilot. Additionally, players will have the opportunity to upgrade her ship as well as her speeder, abilities, kit, and blaster.

As highlighted by PC Gamer's Morgan Park, another notable distinction from Jedi: Survivor is the significantly larger size of the planets in Outlaws. Unlike the relatively compact planets that Cal Kestis explores in Jedi: Survivor, the planets in Outlaws are set to be significantly larger in scale.
