Ubisoft recently unveiled a deeper look into their upcoming AAA title "Star Wars Outlaws," giving players an idea of what the world has in store for them via a gameplay overview of roughly 10 minutes. So buckle up and prepare to blast your way through a galaxy far, far away, as we explore the key features for this upcoming title.

Carving your own path

Star Wars Outlaws throws you into the shoes of Kay, a cunning scoundrel seeking a fresh start. The game boasts a vast, open world spanning different planets, each with its own unique challenges and opportunities. You'll have the freedom to choose how you approach situations. Fancy a straight-up blaster brawl? Go for it! Want to take a stealthier route and utilise your environment for takedowns? The choice is yours.

A blast from the past

The trailer showcases some familiar Star Wars locations, including the iconic Mos Eisley cantina. This suggests the game will be filled with references and Easter eggs for fans to discover.

Not going solo

Accompanying Kay on her adventures is Nix, an adorable (and apparently ferocious) companion. Nix can be used for scouting, distractions, and even combat, adding another layer to your gameplay approach.

Mastering the scoundrels craft

The trailer hints at a skill-based progression system. Players can track down experts to learn new abilities, enhancing Kay's repertoire and making her a more formidable outlaw.

Star Wars Outlaw is looking to be a unique open world experience, offering players to carve their own paths, with its focus on player choice, exploration and multiple combat options. The game is set to release on August 30, but early access will be available from August 27 for those who purchased special editions.
