Star Wars Outlaws was one of the more exciting gameplay trailers we saw during Summer Game Fest, specifically kicking off Ubisoft Forward. It looks like a mixture of Red Dead Redemption 2 and Star Wars, and I’m all here for it! But I have a question, as do many of you. How many planets are in Star Wars Outlaws?

How Many Planets Can We Explore in Star Wars Outlaws?

In all, Star Wars Outlaws features five planets for us to venture to and explore, with quests on each one to flesh out the main and side stories. The available planets include:

  • Akiva: Akiva is a jungle planet home to numerous droid factories and industrial complexes. Its large city welcomes outlaws.
  • Cantonica: A hub world full of wealthy criminals, where gambling is the go-to vice daily for many. There’s even a luxury resort, should you care to sneak in and lift a few items.
  • Kijimi: A frozen-over world, which we first saw in The Rise of the Skywalker, that fell to bandit attacks and became a haven for criminals.
  • Tatooine: An iconic Star Wars planet from the films—a seemingly endless desert expanse home to criminal organizations, such as the Hutts, but full of opportunity for an outlaw.
  • Toshara Moon: The Moon of Toshara, while not technically a planet, is a brand-new location explicitly built for the game. It features settlements, a sprawling city, and plenty of open land to race your speeder bike.

Does Star Wars Outlaws Feature Space Flight?

Star Wars Outlaws does feature space flight to some extent, though many liken it to Starfield’s mechanics. It appears you can fly around the immediate orbit of a planet or moon, but if you want to travel between two planets, you must use a hyperdrive to immediately zip through space.

If this is disappointing to you, consider the fact that Star Wars Outlaws isn’t a space simulator. It’s an on-the-ground story about an outlaw and her pals, and space flight is simply a means to an end for the group.

That said, here’s hoping it’s a little more fleshed-out and fun!
