The two must infiltrate a secret location, use stealth, fight with a blaster, and steal valuable goods. Once you’ve watched the action play out, watch our gameplay walkthrough breakdown, where Star Wars Outlaws’ narrative director, creative director, and game director go into deeper detail on the characters, locations, gameplay mechanics, Kay’s ship the Trailblazer, and more.
