Xbox Games Showcase 2023 had an unforgettable line-up for games across platforms. One of the most anticipated games came from Ubisoft and Microsoft's announcement: Star Wars: Outlaws. The official trailer showcases a riveting adventure filled with action-packed content and suspenseful combat.

Although there're many Star Wars games out there, ranging from older titles like Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader to newer ones like LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, none of them have been truly open world. Is latest addition an exception?

Is Star Wars Outlaws Open World?

Yes, Star Wars: Outlaws is official dubbed as the first open-world Star Wars game. More specifically, it's an action adventure that takes place between the Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

Players follow the story of Kay Vess, a scoundrel, who must fight for her freedom and escape the galaxy's crime syndicates. Nix, Kay's axolotl-like companion, and ND-5, a droid, accompany the outlaw on her quest to transform her life for the better.

The Star Wars Outlaws: Official Gameplay Walkthrough showcases how Kay navigates the unforgiving world. You'll have to stealth your way through some enemies and get yourself out of sticky situations by using your blaster and other weapons. Expect intense chases while riding your speeder, complex challenges, and vast environments as you explore different planets across the galaxy.

Although we're not sure about the game's price, we know that Star Wars: Outlaws is set to launch sometime in 2024 and will be playable on Xbox Series X and Series S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
