Ubisoft, in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games, has announced “Star Wars Outlaws,” the first open-world “Star Wars” game, will launch Aug. 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 of early access, and those who preorder before Aug. 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 navigate the underworld across the galaxy, building their reputation with legendary criminal organizations, including the Pyke Syndicate, Hutt Cartel, 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,” says Julian Gerighty, creative director, Ubisoft.

“‘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,” says Douglas Reilly, vice president, Lucasfilm Games. “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.”

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. By subscribing to Ubisoft+ or purchasing the Gold or Ultimate Edition, players can also access the game up to three days early.
