Is Star Wars Outlaws open world? The upcoming Star Wars game from The Division developer Massive Entertainment, and publisher Ubisoft, is bringing a new character to the Star Wars universe, Kay Vess, as well as a new story set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

While many of the latest Star Wars productions have had mixed responses (Star Wars fans just can’t be happy), we hope that this ends up being one of the best PS5 Star Wars games and best Xbox Star Wars games out there. But can you explore the galaxy, far, far away on your own in Star Wars Outlaws?

Is Star Wars Outlaws open world?

Yes, Star Wars Outlaws is the first open world Star Wars game, thanks to confirmation from the reveal trailer shown during the Xbox Game Showcase 2023. Outlaws is set to offer a variety of distinct planets to explore, both new and old for Star Wars fans.

Considering the fact that Ubisoft publishes plenty of open world titles, it’s no surprise that it would push for an open world Star Wars game. If anything, we’re quite surprised that it took this long for a Star Wars game to allow open exploration.

With The Division developer leading development on Star Wars Outlaws, and with the main character being a scoundrel, we imagine they’d be a lot of focus on being a shooter as opposed to a force-wielding Jedi.

Now you know that Star Wars Outlaws is open world, you just need to wait for the Star Wars Outlaws release date before you can play the game. Yeah, it’s going to be a long wait, so we recommend playing some of the best Xbox open world games and best PS5 open world games to spend some time in.
