Massive Entertainment Reveals Details About Star Wars Outlaws Open World
Traverse Unique Planets
Star Wars Outlaws, the highly anticipated game from developer Massive Entertainment, will feature a massive open world with a variety of explorable planets. Each planet will have its own quirks, terrains, and citizens, creating a truly immersive experience for players.
Pursuing a Manageable Approach
While the worlds in Star Wars Outlaws will be incredibly large, Massive Entertainment wanted to ensure they were still manageable for players. Creative Director Julian Gerighty explains that the size of each planet can be compared to two or three zones in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, providing a fair challenge and hiding rewards and secrets for players to discover.
No Procedural Generation
Unlike many open world games, Massive Entertainment is not relying heavily on procedural generation. Instead, they are handcrafting each planet to give them their own unique sense of identity. While the world will not be endlessly explorable, this approach guarantees that there will be more to discover on each individual planet.
A Balanced Approach
By creating segmented and unique planets, Star Wars Outlaws aims to strike a balance between freedom and achievable exploration-based goals. This departure from the trend of massive open worlds with scattered quests and collectibles allows players to have a more realistic and fulfilling experience.
Anticipated Release in 2024
Star Wars Outlaws is set to be released in 2024. As more information becomes available, we can expect to learn more about Massive Entertainment’s approach towards creating this exciting open world experience.
