Star Wars Outlaws: After paywall criticism

Ubisoft has responded to allegations that a mission featuring Jabba the Hutt is hidden behind a paywall. However, players without a season pass are by no means denied access to the Hutte.

“Star Wars Outlaws” will be rotating in the console drives from August. Some players have already rotated in the past few days. Because the season pass for the Ubisoft adventure contains an exclusive mission that is related to Jabba the Hutt. How reported yesterday.


After the announcement of the additional mission and the connection to the season pass led to heated discussions, a statement from publisher Ubisoft followed.

Not the only Jabba appearance in Star Wars Outlaws

It was initially unclear what proportion the season pass mission would play in Jabba the Hut's entire appearance. Ubisoft provided clarity here. Accordingly, the well-known character from “Star Wars” is an important part of “Star Wars Outlaws” and represents one of the most important syndicates with the Hutt Cartel.

“To be clear, Jabba the Hutt and the Hutt Cartel are one of the most important syndicates in Star Wars Outlaws and will be part of the experience for everyone who purchases the game, regardless of edition,” a Ubisoft representative told us PC gamers.

“Jabba’s Move,” the name of the exclusive Season Pass challenge, is an “optional, additional mission with the Hutt Cartel” that Kay and Nix will encounter on their journey.


“This mission will be available to those who purchase the Season Pass or an edition of the game that includes the Season Pass,” Ubisoft explains.

So the fact remains: The expansion pass contains an exclusive mission with Jabba the Hutt. However, it is by no means the only appearance of the overweight Hutt. We have summarized below which other syndicates are waiting for you in “Star Wars Outlaws”:
