Star Wars Outlaws Reveals Lots Of Exciting Details About Gameplay & Size Of The Planets
Right now one of the most promising games for 2024 is Star Wars Outlaws, a title developed by Massive Entertainment. It seeks to be an open world of action and adventure that challenges us to become the most wanted outlaw in the galaxy. Ubisoft confirmed a month ago that players will be blown away by the sheer amount of detail. However, today there is additional information that we must know.
As reported by MP1ST, the latest issue of EDGE magazine has revealed new details about Star Wars Outlaws related to gameplay, planet sizes, and more. One of the most important aspects is that Massive Entertainment has designed the title so that we can approach the fighting with complete freedom. They also point out that the reputation system will allow us to access exclusive missions, which will allow us to unlock blocked areas.
It is also detailed that if we refuse to be part of a faction, it will send bounty hunters after us. Clarified that players will not be able to fly above the planet, there will be landing and takeoff zones by default. Each planet is equivalent to two or three areas of the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey map, and all the locations are drawn by hand and not procedurally.
More Star Wars Outlaws details
It has also been confirmed that Nix, the creature that accompanies the protagonist, can attack, distract enemies and activate buttons. It’s a mix of Elizabeth from BioShock Infinite or BD-1 from Star Wars Jedi Survivor. The developers have created Vass’ Trailblazer ship taking inspiration from ’70s toys, and it was made to be “very simple”. Finally, emphasize that this title will arrive in 2024 for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X | S.
Star Wars all updates
We barely have details of most of these projects, some seem to still take several years to reach stores, but after all those years with hardly any quality Star Wars games, with cancellations and failed projects like Star Wars: 1313 of which we spoke recently, this new era is exciting. Below we tell you the eight Star Wars games announced to date.
Star Wars KOTOR Remake
Considered not only one of the best Star Wars video games but also one of the great RPGs of all time, the KOTOR remake is another exciting project with hardly any details. The story lineup was developed by the team at Aspyr Media, known for adapting classic games to current platforms, and promised to be “faithful to the original but unafraid of change”. However, the production changed hands and is now taken care of by Saber Interactive.
Star Wars Eclipse
The authors of Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human delve into the Star Wars universe with a project that still seems distant, very distant, but with which it is difficult not to get excited: a narrative action-adventure set in the times of the High Republic. The Jedi are legion, but they have countless enemies. The Quantic Dream game promises a great story with decisions and multiple protagonists.
Star Wars Outlaws
Star Wars Outlaws is an open-world action-adventure video game that challenges us to become the most wanted outlaw in the galaxy. From the authors of The Division, Star Wars Outlaws invites players to experience the Star Wars galaxy like never before, in an original story set between Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
A fast-paced open world, in which action prevails, exploration and in which there will be no lack of shootings, chases and space battles. Using the latest visual technology from the Snowdrop graphics engine, Ubisoft says it will be “an original Star Wars adventure, unlike anything that’s been done before.”
Star Wars: Hunters
Looking at Nintendo Switch and mobile phones we find Star Wars: Hunters, a proposal for a more multiplayer cut where intrepid bounty hunters, heroes of the Rebellion and imperial stormtroopers have to compete against each other in a team of four players. With Zynga behind it and a casual graphic section, Hunters can be a good gateway for new players.
Star Wars (Bit Reactor)
The name of the team in charge may not tell you much. They opened their doors in 2022. But behind it is a study made up of former Firaxis employees, creators of various strategy proposals such as XCOM. Not much is known about a project overseen by Respawn, but the studio’s heads have already made their ambition clear: they want to create something GOTY-eligible.
Star Wars FPS (Respawn)
Leading this Star Wars FPS is the executive producer of the classic Star Wars Battlefront. Does this mean that we are talking about Battlefront 3? Nothing is further from reality. Respawn is silent for now, so there are plenty of other options on the horizon: a Republic Commando-style tactical FPS? An action game like Titanfall? We will have to be patient with this game.
Star Wars by Amy Hennig
We close with Amy Hennig. The Uncharted screenwriter has already tried to work with the Lucasfilm saga in the past, but after her failed experience with Visceral Games and EA, she returns to the fray on her behalf, guaranteeing a richly cinematographic action and adventure title that will narrate an original story. Hennig is also joined by the talent of Dominic Robilliard, who already participated in the development of the promising (albeit ill-fated), Star Wars 1313. There is not much more to tell, but the promise of having a fervent follower of the Star Wars universe behind its development.
