Star Wars Outlaws PS5

Star Wars Outlaws has gone gold almost two months ahead of its PS5 release date of 30th August 2024, Ubisoft today confirmed. This means work on the 1.0 version of the open world title is now complete and can be pressed to physical discs while Massive Entertainment prepares a day one patch and post-launch DLC.

The official Star Wars Outlaws Twitter account added: "Our team can't wait for you to start exploring the Outer Rim and living the life of a scoundrel — August 30 can't come soon enough!" If you pre-order either the Gold Edition or Ultimate Edition, you'll be able to play three days early, from 27th August 2024.

The PS5 open world experience — set in between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi — has been the subject of mixed Preview articles after its Summer Game Fest showing. We said: "It's extremely hard to get a read on Star Wars Outlaws from the demo we were shown. The idea of exploring a galaxy far, far away is such an enticing prospect and instead we were presented with extremely linear Uncharted-inspired demos that weren't exactly big on player freedom."

Though, it was argued by the developer the demo represented just a small slice of what Star Wars Outlaws has to offer. Push Square readers remain excited by the prospect, voting it their second most anticipated game for the rest of 2024, just behind Astro Bot.
