With Star Wars: Outlaws, Ubisoft announced a promising new sci-fi adventure that takes you to different planets. But how big is it actually? There is now a statement from the developers about it.
How big is the world of the newly announced Star Wars: Outlaws games, which are so promising? Obviously, you can’t expect an epic space adventure like Starfield, but how big is it compared to, say, the Assassin’s Creed games?
In an interview with Edge magazine, Creative Director Julian Gerighty commented on this topic and reiterated once again that Kay Vess’ journey will not be entirely procedurally – i.e. randomly – interplanetary. Instead, each planet will have large open spaces for you to explore.
Each planet should be the size of one or two regions, as was the case in Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey in ancient Greece. As a reminder, the historically themed saga included a total of seven regions and is considered a fairly extensive offshoot within the Assassin’s Creed series. So if Outlaws only had four playable planets, it would be bigger than Odyssey.
“It’s a rough analogy, but the size of a planet could be the equivalent of two regions in Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. It could be two to three regions,” said Gritti. At the same time, he maintains, one would not approach it as ambitious as, say, reproducing the whole of England, as in Valhalla—and this has sometimes been criticized for its gigantic scope even by fans. So they should take a deep breath that you won’t be on individual planets for long in Outlaws.
Ultimately, the big question is how many planets will there be in Star Wars: Outlaws; This will then determine the actual scope of the game. There are no official statements from Ubisoft in this regard.
Star Wars: Outlaws is scheduled for 2024 on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
