Star Wars Outlaws missions locked to expensive versions receive criticism - Ubisoft responds



Everyone will meet Jabba the Hut, but a specific mission costs extra.

When Star Wars Outlaws was shown off and given a release date last week, it was clear that Ubisoft is trying to lure buyers to the more expensive versions with exclusive content.

The standard edition costs $69.99, but for an extra $40 for the Gold Edition or an extra $60 (as much as a full game) for the Ultimate Edition, you get to start playing three days before the real premiere, plus the season pass (and with the future dlc) and some cosmetic stuff. As well as a mission with Jabba the Hut missions that you can't play if you buy the regular game.

This move received stinging criticism from many, and now Ubisoft has commented on the matter. PC Gamer is told that Jabba the Hutt and his cartel are included in the game for all buyers. But for the specific assignment mentioned in the pre-booking information, you have to pay more.

"To clarify, Jabba the Hutt and the Hutt Cartel are one of the main syndicates in Star Wars Outlaws and will be part of the experience for everyone who purchases the game, regardless of edition. The 'Jabba’s Gambit' mission is an optional, additional mission with the Hutt Cartel along Kay and Nix's journey across the Outer Rim. This mission will be available to those who purchase the season pass or an edition of the game which includes the season pass."

Star Wars Outlaws is coded by in Sweden Malmo-based Massive Entertainment and thus published by Ubisoft. The release date is August 30, and it can be played on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series.
