Star Wars Outlaws: Release Date, Platforms, Trailers & Everything We Know

Star Wars Outlaws is coming out in a galaxy that’s actually not that far away, so you best learn everything you need to know before hopping in.

If you’re a Star Wars fan or simply enjoy Ubisoft’s brand of open-world adventure, then you’re likely keen to play Star Wars Outlaws. Fortunately, in order to get you fully up to speed and prepared for the journey that lies ahead, we’ve compiled everything you need to know.

Star Wars Outlaws Release Date

Star Wars Outlaws is releasing on Friday, August 30, 2024. However, if you pre-order the Gold or Ultimate edition of the game you’ll get three days early access starting from Tuesday, August 27, 2024.

It’s worth noting that this release date was accidentally leaked early by none other than Ubisoft itself. Fortunately, it has been officially confirmed now, so players won’t have long left to wait.

Star Wars Outlaws Platforms

Star Wars Outlaws is releasing on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. However, it is not releasing on Steam or the Epic Games Store. It will be exclusively launching on Ubisoft Connect for PC. It is unlikely that it will be released on Steam or Epic Games Store any time soon. However, if it performs poorly on Ubisoft Connect, it’s possible it could be added to those platforms in the future.

Fortunately, if you did fancy playing it on your Steam Deck, there is a workaround. Additionally, while it isn’t coming to Xbox Game Pass on day one, fans hoping to try it out on a subscription service are in luck.

What Is Star Wars Outlaws?

Star Wars Outlaws is an open-world third-person shooter with a strong focus on narrative. In fact, it is the very first open-world Star Wars game ever. It’s story takes place between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi and sees that game’s protagonist, Kay Vess, attempt to make a name for herself in the criminal underworld.

You’ll be able to explore several planets, including Tatooine, Cantonica, Kijimi, Akiva, and Toshara. Players can traverse these open worlds on foot or on their trusty speeders. When you’re done, you’ll blast off into space with absolutely no loading screens and even be able to get into dogfights in your trusty ship, the Trailblazer. Nice.

There’s also a reputation system that is affected by the choices you make and, likely, the people you side with. So, along with the high-stakes missions you’ll undertake, you’ll also need to be wary of bounties being put on your head. Essentially, it’s the ultimate scoundrel simulator set in the Star Wars universe.

Does Star Wars Outlaws Have a Season Pass

Yes, Star Wars Outlaws does have a Season Pass. Players can purchase it separately or get it as part of the Gold and Ultimate editions. It includes the following bonuses:

  • Two narrative-based DLCs to be released post-launch
  • The Kessel Runner Character Pack
    • Includes cosmetics for Kay Vess and Nix based on Han Solo
  • The “Jabba’s Gambit” exclusive mission available at launch

Star Wars Outlaws Pre-Order Bonus

The pre-order bonus for Star Wars Outlaws is the Kessel Runner Bonus Pack, which comes with a Trailblazer spaceship skin and a speeder skin. This pre-order bonus comes with every edition of the game.
