Star Wars Outlaws: New teaser trailer featuring Lando Calrissian and Jabba

Opening Summer Game Fest 2024 and ahead of its own Ubisoft Forward event, the French publisher wants to build anticipation for Star Wars Outlaws with a new trailer. You can see Lando Calrissian and Jabba the Hutt, two well-known characters from the classic Star Wars trilogy.

Star Wars Outlaws is one of Ubisoft's most important products

Ubisoft announced a comprehensive Star Wars Outlaws presentation in the Ubisoft Forward format on Monday evening. It starts in the evening at 9:00pm CEST – directly after Apple's keynote at the internal trade show WWDC, which will be live-streamed beforehand from 7:00pm. The new trailer, shown at the inaugural Summer Game Fest livestream, can be seen as an appetizer meant to whet the appetite for Ubisoft's special event.

A bounty hunter adventure in a galactic empire

Some things are already known about Star Wars Outlaws. Players take on the role of bounty hunter Kay Vess, who travels across the outer edge of the galaxy with her slave companion Nix to hire a crew for an upcoming heist. It will be possible to reach different planets; Tatooine, Cantonika, Kijimi, Akiva, and the newly created planet Toshara are confirmed.

The plot of the third-person adventure, set during the period of the Galactic Empire, begins a few years after the destruction of the rebel base on Hoth, and we are talking about the golden age of underground criminal organizations. This refers to the Pyke Syndicate, Hutt Cartel, and Ashiga Clan, which were newly created by developer Massive Entertainment in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games.

There are no system requirements for Star Wars Outlaws, like Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, which was developed in Ubisoft's Snowdrop engine. What is already certain is that the game will rely on ray tracing and will make extensive use of the DLSS feature set. DLSS Supersolution and DLSS Frame Generation are offered with Nvidia Reflex and DLSS Ray Reconstruction. Information regarding AMD FSR and Intel XeSS support is still pending.

Star Wars Outlaws will be released on August 30, 2024 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series As is usual with Ubisoft's large AAA(A) productions, the Star Wars adventure will also cost around 70 euros. The Gold Edition with a Season Pass and three-day early access costs €110, while the Ultimate Edition, which costs €130, also promises additional in-game rewards and a digital art book.
