Official Press Release from Ubisoft - These come into my work email.

Stay tuned to our official review once the time draws near my friends. We work very closely with Ubisoft and tend to always get dibs early on. (And no, we do not get money under the table, before anyone asks lol)

If I was not going to be getting a review copy, yes I would still be buying this regardless. What I saw from the preview they showed last year looked very intriguing to me and this is coming from someone who doesn't care much for Star Wars. I am a bit of a sucker for Ubisoft games lol.

How do you all feel about this title? I just hope it's not a bloat-fest and the open world content is balanced. Ubisoft is notorious for that, but yet their games are kind of addicting. It's kind of weird, it's just their trademark lol.

Star Wars Outlaws™ Launches August 30



Fans can preorder now, with Gold and Ultimate Edition purchasers enjoying the first-ever open world Star Wars game up to three days early



SAN FRANCISCO – April 9, 2024 – Today, Ubisoft, in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games, announced that Star Wars Outlaws, the first open-world Star Wars game, will launch on August 30 on Xbox Series X|S consoles, PlayStation 5, Amazon Luna and PC through Ubisoft Connect. Fans who subscribe to Ubisoft+ or purchase the Gold Edition or Ultimate Edition of the game can enjoy up to three days early access*, and those who preorder before August 30 will receive the "Kessel Runner Bonus Pack" which includes cosmetics for Kay’s speeder and for her ship, the Trailblazer.

Ubisoft revealed more details about cunning scoundrel Kay Vess and her companion Nix’s search for an opportunity of a lifetime. During this era, the Empire’s rule is distracted by the rebellion that won’t quit, leading to a golden age for the underworld. As a skilled thief, Kay’s antics catch the attention of Sliro, the leader of a new, foreboding criminal syndicate Zerek Besh. After Sliro places a bounty on Kay’s head, Kay and Nix are offered their one shot at freedom - pull off one of the greatest heists of all time. Kay and Nix will need to navigate the underworld across the galaxy, building their reputation with legendary criminal organizations including the Pyke Syndicate, the Hutt Cartel, the Ashiga Clan** and Crimson Dawn to earn the support they need to finish the job.

“In search of true freedom, the resourceful Kay and Nix will journey through the underworld and across the Outer Rim, taking on jobs from syndicates, facing off against intimidating foes, avoiding oppressive Imperial rule and recruiting a skilled outlaw crew in order to pull off one of the greatest heists the galaxy has ever seen,” shared Julian Gerighty, Creative Director.

"Star Wars Outlaws invites fans to experience a side of the galaxy that has a treasure trove yet to be explored, the exploits of the scoundrels taking advantage of the golden age of the underworld. We’ve been inspired by Massive Entertainment’s dedication to bringing this aspect of Star Wars to life, including both iconic and new things for fans to explore in an open world," said Douglas Reilly, vice president, Lucasfilm Games.

Kay and Nix will travel across the galaxy to gain the right resources and crew for the ultimate heist. In their journey, they’ll travel across distinct locations, both iconic and new: Canto Bight, Kijimi, Tatooine, Akiva, and the windswept savannah of Toshara**. Along the way, Kay will explore bustling cities and cantinas, race across sprawling outdoor landscapes on her speeder, and pilot her ship the Trailblazer through the wilds of space. When things go awry, the Trailblazer will also help them chase, evade and attack to gain the upper hand in thrilling dogfights with the Empire and other foes.

Star Wars Outlaws will be available through the Ubisoft Store and at retail at a suggested price of $69.99 for the base game. By subscribing to Ubisoft+ or purchasing the Gold or Ultimate Edition, players can also access the game up to three days early*.

Yeah I dont know what Ubisoft is doing with Star Wars franchise. The way the Avatars hype has died out, I cant see their Star Wars would last longer. I am not even mentioning the main "female" design look.
