Ubisoft Corrects Star Wars Outlaws Releasing In Late 2024 Back To General 2024
Ubisoft’s eagerly awaited open-world game set in the Star Wars universe, titled Star Wars Outlaws, had its launch timeframe recently updated. An initial post on the Disney Parks blog implied that fans could expect the game to arrive towards the end of 2024. However, this statement has now been rectified, removing any specific indication within 2024 and simply noting the game is anticipated for that year. Ubisoft confirmed the mistake to Kotaku and clarified that the information had been updated to reflect the correct timing of launch within 2024.
Star Wars Outlaws, unveiled during an Xbox Showcase the previous year, promises to bring players into a fresh narrative within the popular franchise. It introduces a new protagonist, Kay Vess, who embodies the charismatic and resourceful qualities of classic Star Wars adventurers like Han Solo. Vess, a character with no known Jedi powers, must navigate through challenging scenarios using intelligence and negotiation skills, as well as combat prowess when necessary.
The game is stepping into a narrative space within the Star Wars universe that hasn’t been widely explored through video games before. Vess’s journey will veer away from the Jedi-centric storylines gamers have often encountered, offering a new perspective and style of gameplay within the beloved galaxy.
Further insight into Star Wars Outlaws was provided through a conversation with the game’s narrative director, Navid Khavari. The interview delved into topics such as the game’s narrative undertones, potential connections to existing Star Wars lore, and coordination with Respawn on its Jedi series of games.
Star Wars enthusiasts and gamers alike can look forward to experiencing Kay Vess's adventures when Star Wars Outlaws makes its debut. The title is currently slated for release across Xbox Series X/S, PS5, and PC platforms. With the corrected release window, anticipation continues to build as 2024 approaches, promising yet another immersive dive into the Star Wars universe.
