The highly anticipated Star Wars Outlaws by Massive Entertainment is set to release on August 30th for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. However, the recent reveal of the Jabba's Gambit mission has sparked some heated discussions among gamers.

The Jabba's Gambit mission, which is playable at launch, is causing controversy as it is exclusive to those who own the Season Pass. This has led to backlash from the community, with many expressing their disappointment at having to pay $129.99 for the Ultimate Edition to access this content.

In response to these concerns, a Ubisoft representative clarified to PCGamer that Jabba the Hutt and the Hutt Cartel are integral parts of the Star Wars Outlaws experience for all players, regardless of the edition they purchase. The 'Jabba's Gambit' mission is an optional addition to the main storyline, following Kay and Nix's journey across the Outer Rim.

While the full extent of content in the game is still under wraps, it has been revealed that each planet in Star Wars Outlaws is the size of two to three zones from Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The cities, such as Mirogana, focus on density rather than vast scale, creating a more immersive and detailed environment for players to explore.

One refreshing change in Star Wars Outlaws is the absence of open-world towers that players need to uncover portions of the map, allowing for a more natural and organic exploration experience. With the game set to launch soon, fans can look forward to more details and gameplay in the upcoming months, especially with the Ubisoft Forward event scheduled for June 10.
