Officially unveiled by Ubisoft during Microsoft’s summer conference, Star Wars Outlaws is already eagerly awaited by fans, and the latest information shared should not slow the hype.
A gigantic world?
Aware of the enormous expectations of a large part of the community, the developers of Ubisoft Massive wanted to reveal many new details about their baby by contacting our colleagues from EDGE magazine. Thus, creative director Julian Gerighty notably mentioned the size of the planets and the different approaches that players will be able to take advantage of.
We thus learn that each planet will offer a substantial playground, the size of which will be roughly equivalent to “two or three zones” of the map of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, an absolutely gargantuan title. Whatever the region explored, the teams really wanted to highlight the “travel” aspect by including landscapes and particularly exotic situations. Moreover, regarding the creation of these areas, Gerighty also confirmed that each environment was created from scratch and that the studio did not use procedural generation for the sets.
In terms of gameplay, again, the developers wanted to offer “full freedom of approach” to players, whether for the main missions or side quests. On the other hand, you will not be able to act as you see fit at the controls of your Trailblazer ship since there will be many take-off and landing zones defined. Regarding Nix, the alien companion of the main heroine, players will be able to give him various orders so that he attacks enemies, activate mechanisms out of reach, cause distractions or even pick up equipment and weapons for you. report.
Finally, let’s finish with a point on the reputation system. We know that your actions throughout the adventure will have an impact on your relations with the different factions. Thus, certain quests, objects and areas will be locked until you have a good relationship with the group concerned. This one can even set up bounties on your head to put you out of harm’s way!
As a reminder, Star Wars Outlaws is expected for 2024 on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S only.
