Star Wars Outlaws August 30th Confirmed with 3 Days Early Access

Here's the official announcement for the report below, confirming that August 30th is the launch date for Star Wars: Outlaws for Windows, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC via Ubisoft Connect. This includes news that the new Forceful action/adventure will be playable three days before that on August 27th for purchasers of the pricier editions and Ubisoft+ Premium subscribers. The Product Section has details and links to preorder. Here's the new Official Story Trailer with the new date, and here's more on the game:
Ubisoft revealed more details about cunning scoundrel Kay Vess and her companion Nix’s search for an opportunity of a lifetime. During this era, the Empire’s rule is distracted by the rebellion that won’t quit, leading to a golden age for the underworld. As a skilled thief, Kay’s antics catch the attention of Sliro, the leader of a new, foreboding criminal syndicate Zerek Besh. After Sliro places a bounty on Kay’s head, Kay and Nix are offered their one shot at freedom - pull off one of the greatest heists of all time. Kay and Nix will need to navigate the underworld across the galaxy, building their reputation with legendary criminal organizations including the Pyke Syndicate, the Hutt Cartel, the Ashiga Clan** and Crimson Dawn to earn the support they need to finish the job.

Kay and Nix will travel across the galaxy to gain the right resources and crew for the ultimate heist. In their journey, they’ll travel across distinct locations, both iconic and new: Canto Bight, Kijimi, Tatooine, Akiva, and the windswept savannah of Toshara**. Along the way, Kay will explore bustling cities and cantinas, race across sprawling outdoor landscapes on her speeder, and pilot her ship the Trailblazer through the wilds of space. When things go awry, the Trailblazer will also help them chase, evade and attack to gain the upper hand in thrilling dogfights with the Empire and other foes.

No Black Sun syndicate in this? Haven't come across them since Shadows of the Empire but apparently they (along with Xizor) did get integrated into the current canon.
Disney only considers the films and The Clone Wars TV series from LucasFilm under George's ownership as cannon.

Sure but they're rather flexible with all that given that Thrawn (orig from EU books) has been in the tv shows now for awhile.

You know you don't have to be that guy. Besides, you knew perfectly well what type of CANON I was referring to.

Oh I completely agree. This isn't me saying if it's good enough I will eat it up. This is me saying I'm willing to give it a chance but, considering that it's in a property that has been decimated by morons and being made by a shameless company that cuts and pastes most of every one of their games so they have more time for abusing their employees, it had better do everything short of bringing me to transcendent orgasm before I buy it.

I hope I'm wrong. There have been some great SW games in the past for sure, but lately.....it's like everyone wants to squeeze the IP for all it's worth, and quality be damned.....

\If the reviews are great and its widely available then I'm up for it. If there is exclusivity or DRM bullshit then they can f*** off. Not like there aren't another million options.

The video makes it looks like the game might not be just another Disney abomination. But then again that would be easy to hide in a trailer. I still have love for the Star Wars universe despite how thoroughly Disney has destroyed it. I'm hoping beyond hope that the last remnants of a once-amazing universe haven't been swept away. Time will tell.

That said, they already have two narrative DLCs planned so maybe the Black Suns are going to be a part of the DLCs. Would be the typical lame Disney/Ubi shit to hold things back and cut things out for DLC.

But, as he said in what you quoted, Black Sun is in the current canon.
In fact, Black Sun is in like 50-ish canon properties, including the Clone Wars TV series.

Just didn't feel like Star Wars, and seemed forgettable. Didn't see a thing in the preview that got me excited. Then we have the fact it's Ubisoft, and that kills what little curiosity there was.

Much like The Italian Job they should have called this The Outer Rim Job.
