    What Does “Going Gold” Mean?

    For the uninitiated, “going gold” signifies a momentous milestone in game development. It essentially means the core game – version 1.0 – is complete and ready for mass production.

    Traditionally, this involved sending the game data for physical disc duplication. While digital distribution has become increasingly prominent, the term “going gold” has stuck.

    Here’s the exciting part: with Star Wars Outlaws hitting gold so early, it suggests a high level of polish and confidence from developer Ubisoft Massive.

    They’ve deemed the game content complete and stable enough to begin the duplication process well ahead of schedule. This doesn’t necessarily mean there won’t be a day-one patch to address any lingering bugs, but it’s a positive sign.


    Early Bird Gets the Lightsaber

    While Star Wars Outlaws doesn’t quite match the record-breaking three-month pre-launch gold status of Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XVI, it’s still an impressive feat. Most games typically only reach gold a few weeks before release. This extended lead time allows Ubisoft to focus on polishing the final product, potentially even including additional content in the day-one patch.

    Developed using the impressive Snowdrop engine, Star Wars Outlaws promises a seamless experience, transitioning smoothly between space exploration and planetary adventures. PC players can expect a visual and performance boost thanks to NVIDIA DLSS 3.5 technology, offering super resolution, frame generation, and ray tracing reconstruction.

    A Scoundrel’s Tale

    The era suggested by Lucasfilm sets the stage for an exciting tale as Star Wars Outlaws unfolds between the events of “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi,” with storytelling taking center stage.

    Players take on the role of Kay Vess, a burgeoning scoundrel navigating the lawless Outer Rim territories. Gear up for thrilling escapades, thrilling heists, and encounters with both familiar Star Wars faces and brand-new characters.
