Ubisoft’s brand new open-world Star Wars game has been unveiled at the Xbox Games Showcase, and I think I can safely say that no one saw it coming.

Star Wars fans have truly been eating good lately, with Star Wars Jedi: Survivor gracing our screens earlier this year (I would die for Turgle), and the Disney+ series Ahsoka set to premiere later this summer. Now, we just got our first look at Star Wars Outlaws, and it looks truly incredible.

Take a look at the trailer below!

Star Wars Outlaws is set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, and will put players in the shoes of scoundrel Kay Vess.

“Risk it all as Kay Vess, an emerging scoundrel seeking freedom and the means to start a new life, along with her companion Nix,” the game's official synopsis reads. “Fight, steal, and outwit your way through the galaxy’s crime syndicates as you join the galaxy’s most wanted.”

Believe it or not, although we’ve seen dozens of Star Wars games release over the years, this is actually the franchise’s very first open-world adventure.

“When we first imagined the first open-world Star Wars game, we explored where and when it could take place, and quickly realised that we had all the right ingredients for the journey of a scoundrel,” creative director for Ubisoft, Julian Gerighty, said in a press release. “These outlaws live life under the thumb of the Galactic Empire, but can still thrive given the opportunities that the criminal underworld opens up for people looking to take advantage of the turmoil. The time is ripe for a new outlaw to make their name, and Kay Vess is written in the stars.”

Even more of Star Wars Outlaws will be shown off tomorrow (12 June) during the Ubisoft Forward showcase, so don’t miss that.

Star Wars Outlaws is set to launch in 2024.
