Ubisoft has announced the Star Wars Outlaws release date, including a brief window of early access when the game launches. This is the latest adventure game set in the world of Star Wars, set in the iconic galaxy far, far away. Outlaws takes place between the Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi films, which is proving to be an exciting prospect for many. Better yet, Outlaws won’t have a Jedi or Sith as its main playable character, instead, you will play as Kay Vess for the full scoundrel immersion. Now, when will Star Wars Outlaws be released?

Star Wars Outlaws gameplay details

As mentioned, we know that Star Wars Outlaws will take place between the fifth and sixth films in the original series. As such, we’ve seen plenty of gameplay that confirmed the involvement of the famous Jabba the Hut. Ubisoft has previously hyped the game as featuring a GTA-like Wanted system, and its gameplay has also seen comparisons made to Uncharted as well as the cancelled Star Wars 1313 project many fans were once excited about. The central gameplay revolves around Kay Vess, a smuggler who has the wit and rizz to match their swagger. You’ll fight enemies mostly in ranged combat, using your guns and whatever else you have in your arsenal.
