Scum, Villainy and a Galaxy of Potential - Star Wars Outlaws Hands-O...
Sydney, New South Wales
Out at Ubisoft Forward in pre-show access during Summer Games Fest we had a chance to go behind closed doors for an intimate look at the freshly-announced (and well received) Star Wars Outlaws with developer, Massive Entertainment. We got some great insight into the game alongside an extended look at it that still hasn't been wholly shared.
Here's a snippet of our insight into the game:
Kay has her own ship called the Trailblazer, and when you fly it, you fly it in real-time. This means you leave the planet, break the atmosphere, enter space, dog-fight (if necessary), and then go into hyperspace to jump between sectors. Seamlessly. And I can’t stress that last point enough. One minute we were on the moon or Toshara, riding a speeder and escaping the baddies and the next it looked like we’d entered the Hoth system. And it all happened without any loading screens and certainly a bunch of Force magic… or something.
