As a seasoned gamer, I’ve explored countless virtual worlds, battled formidable foes, and embarked on epic quests. But nothing quite prepared me for the thrill of Star Wars Outlaws, Ubisoft’s ambitious open-world adventure set in that iconic galaxy we all know and love. Strap in, fellow gamers, because we’re about to dive into the heart of the underworld, where scoundrels thrive, blasters blaze, and secrets abound.

The Scoundrel’s Tale

Meet Kay Vess, our unlikely hero. She’s not a Jedi, nor does she wield the Force. Instead, she’s a scrappy survivor, a petty thief navigating the treacherous space between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Kay’s story is one of audacity, cunning, and unexpected alliances. As she seeks freedom and a fresh start, she’ll outwit crime syndicates, steal valuable goods, and even cross paths with the notorious Jabba the Hutt. But Kay isn’t alone—her trusty axolotl-like companion, Nix, adds a dash of charm and loyalty to her journey.

The Galaxy Beckons

Ubisoft has meticulously crafted a galaxy teeming with life. From bustling cities to sprawling outdoor landscapes, each location in Star Wars Outlaws offers unique challenges and rewards. Let’s explore some of the key planets:

Toshara: A New Moon

Inspired by East African savannas, Toshara is a thriving underworld with a capital city and wide-open plains. Hop on your speeder and explore the wilderness beyond the city gates. But beware—the galaxy’s most wanted lie in wait.

The Wreck: A Giant Starship

In this chapter, Kay delves into the husk of a colossal starship. Solve puzzles, climb grates, and make death-defying jumps as you power up the ship’s generator. And don’t forget Nix’s handy ability to highlight objectives when you’re lost.
