Star Wars Outlaws Will Launch August 30

A new story-focused trailer for Star Wars Outlaws includes a bunch of faces, both old and new.


Announced just last year, Star Wars Outlaws already has a release date: August 30. Ubisoft did say that the game would be coming out in late 2024, but it still feels wild to see. Perhaps Skull and Bones just made me jaded.

The release date was revealed in a new trailer, which teased additional story elements of the upcoming open-world action-adventure game. In the trailer, we see protagonist Kay Vess accidentally cross the head of a rising criminal syndicate in the Star Wars underworld, leading to her need to stay one step ahead of the law and outlaws alike to earn herself a better life.

Now Playing: Star Wars Outlaws: Official Cinematic Story Trailer

A few familiar faces from the seedier side of Star Wars make their appearance in the trailer. Jabba is the notable standout, a prominent member of the Hutt clan and a recurring character in the original Star Wars trilogy and The Clone Wars animated TV series. But there are other fun nods too, like the Pykes and Crimson Dawn--both are major crime syndicates that operated under or were allied with Maul in the final year of The Clone Wars.

There's not too much gameplay in the trailer but we do get a few cute moments of Vess and her adorable partner Nix working in tandem to take down Imperial guards, as well as Vess parkouring across rooftops. Granted, that makes sense given we got a 10-minute look at what Outlaws gameplay looks like when it was first announced.

Star Wars Outlaws is set to release for Xbox Series X|S, PS5, and PC.
