Ubisoft has been one of the most popular video game publishers in the world for a long time now, thanks to its franchises like Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, For Honor, Just Dance, Prince of Persia, Rabbids, Rayman, Tom Clancy’s, and Watch Dogs. The studio has faced some criticism, particularly about their weak game narrative and problems with Ubisoft Connect, but nothing tops their hefty pricing.

This isn’t new as their 2020 video game, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, was also priced similarly, with the Ultimate Edition costing $129.99 for a physical copy. Even today, their 2018 video game, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey‘s Ultimate Edition is priced at $119.99. It appears like Ubisoft is trying to convince its fanbase to purchase Ubisoft+ Premium by pricing the games at these insane prices.

Ubisoft first announced in 2021 that they are working on a Star Wars game under license by Lucasfilm Games. A cinematic trailer was revealed during the Xbox Games Showcase in June 2023 and subsequently, ten minutes of gameplay footage was revealed to the fans. Since then, there has been a lot of excitement about the game.

Set during the period between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, Star Wars Outlaws features Kay Vess and her companion Nix as they “attempt one of the biggest heists the Outer Rim has ever seen.” The official story trailer was released on YouTube:

Star Wars Outlaws will be released for PlayStation 5, Windows, and Xbox Series X/S on 30th August 2024.
