Star Wars Outlaws director responds to negative previews

Published

With previews of Star Wars Outlaws now available on the internet, fans of the franchise have seen some negative reactions. The game’s creative director, Julian Gerighty, commented on them and defended his project by considering it a “very attractive game”.

The most “incisive” report outlined a gameplay comparison with Uncharted: Golden Abyss, released in 2011 for PS Vita. This side-by-side would have classified the gameplay of the new Star Wars as outdated.

Despite this, the director of Star Wars Outlaws does not consider this comparison as something negative. According to him, Uncharted is a “wonderful game” and Naughty Dog would have worked on “something brilliant”.

I mean, for me it wasn’t necessarily our reference point. It’s a wonderful game to compare yourself to, so if you are compared to anyone, it could very well be the best in the industry. Naughty Dog and what they do is absolutely brilliant, so I accept it, but it wasn’t the point of origin.

Star Wars Outlaws preview was not the “main course”

Ubisoft also added that the content offered for the preview is not the “main dish”. Only a short excerpt was made available to the press, but without guaranteeing a complete open world experience.

So we’re going to spend a lot more time on these things. This is a amuse bouche, a starter and not the main course of the game. I think we have a very compelling overall game and only a part of it is represented here.
