Ubisoft has released a new trailer for Star Wars Outlaws, an open-world game from The Division developer Massive Entertainment. The trailer offers us the first details about the game's story.

Star Wars Outlaws’ August 30 release date was accidentally announced a few hours before the trailer went online, but the trailer reveals a lot more about the game’s story.

Star Wars Outlaws centers on new character Kay Vess, who, according to the trailer, is a relative newcomer to the underworld, but has been taking care of herself and the adorable Merqaal Nix since she was little. In the game we get to see how Kay navigates the universe when it is more dangerous than ever.

The game takes place between Episode 5 and Episode 6 of the Star Wars films, meaning the civil war between the Empire and the Rebellion is in full swing. Something that the underworld is only too happy to take advantage of. A new character in the franchise, Sliro, appears to take charge of the criminal factions, after which Kay tries to steal something from him.

How the story will ultimately turn out is of course still a surprise, but we can start working on this new story in August. Players who pre-order the Deluxe or Ultimate Edition will receive three days early access to Star Wars Outlaws, as well as a number of cosmetic rewards. The Ultimate Edition also includes the game’s Season Pass, which gives players two post-launch expansions.

Star Wars Outlaws will be released on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S and PC.
