Star Wars: Outlaws: Will The West Follow South Korea’s Example?

The South Korean ratings board has rated Massive Entertainment’s and Ubisoft’s game, and it is possible that the ESRB (US) and PEGI (Europe) in the West will follow a similar path with Star Wars: Outlaws.


The South Koreans have given the game a 19+ rating, and presumably, it has been given this relatively mature rating because there is a poker-like mini-game in Star Wars: Outlaws. Ubisoft showed this in the first trailer video of the game. The review also mentions the terms “realistic simulation of speculative behavior” and “mini-game with in-game betting and payout content”. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor received a lower rating than this, as Respawn Entertainment’s game was rated 15+, and we will be curious to see how the ESRB and PEGI will rate it…

Massive Entertainment’s game can’t be too far away from release, as this is usually the time when titles are rated, and so we can expect Ubisoft to announce soon exactly when Star Wars: Outlaws will be available. On PC, the game will support Nvidia RTX Direct Illumination and RTGI. This is what the developers had to say about Nvidia’s support for the technology:

“Here at Massive Entertainment, world-building is part of our DNA, and what better way to showcase our craft than to create the first-ever open-world Star Wars game. Filled with diverse locations on the outer rim of the galaxy, both iconic and new, players will be able to experience the Star Wars underworld like never before. DLSS 3 gives us the performance headroom to bring our vision to life and support additional ray tracing features that will help players fully immerse themselves in the adventures of Kay Vess and Nix,” said Massive Entertainment.

Star Wars: Outlaws, which uses the Snowdrop engine, still only has an official release date of 2024, and will probably be released sometime in the fall for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC… or maybe Amazon Luna, knowing Ubisoft.
