Played by Humberly González, Kay is a cunning scoundrel who’ll tussle with the criminal syndicates of the galaxy on her journey.
Hot on the heels of Star Wars Outlaw’s announcement at the recent Xbox Games Showcase, Ubisoft brought the Massive Entertainment-developed open world game to its Ubisoft Forward showcase and offered a much meatier look at the game with an extended gameplay walkthrough that showed off combat, stealth, space dogfights, and more. On top of that, Ubisoft has also released a new video that shines the spotlight of the game’s protagonist, Kay Vess.
Kay is described as a thief and a scoundrel, who, while trying to escape a bounty on her head, becomes embroiled in the galaxy’s criminal underworld- and develops a taste for it. She is accompanied by an adorable friend named Nix, who is pretty much the only one in her life she trusts.
The video sees Humberly González, the actor portraying Kay, and narrative director Navid Khavari speak about Kay, Nix, and their journey in Star Wars Outlaws, which is set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. In its crime-ridden setting, Outlaws will see Kay crossing paths with a number of criminal syndicates. Some will be familiar to Star Wars fans – like the Pykes and the Hutts – while some will be new introductions in the game.
The video also talks about Massive Entertainment’s collaboration with Lucasfilm and how the two worked together to craft the game’s story. Check it out below for more details.
Star Wars Outlaws is due out sometime in 2024 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
