First Star Wars Outlaws Rating Pops Up In South Korea


South Korea’s ratings board published the first Star Wars Outlaws rating ahead of the open-world game’s launch later in 2024, and it received an adults-only tag. Don't get too carried away by that, though. Ubisoft isn’t delving that deep into hives of scum and villainy (thanks, Eurogamer).

The South Korean Game Rating and Administration Committee added the adults-only tag for one thing: A gambling mini-game. None of the other tags that usually warrant 19+ ratings – sexual content, intense violence, and so on – were present.

The translated version of the description reads:

“Realistic simulation of speculative behavior. There is a mini-game with content of in-game betting and dividends. Therefore, Article 21 of the Game Industry Promotion Act and Article 7 of the Rating Regulations In accordance with Article 4, the rating was decided as ‘not for use by minors.”

We’d be more surprised if protagonist Kay Vess, on her mission to become the galaxy’s greatest scoundrel, didn’t get up to a bit of mischief and gambling somewhere along the way, really.

More interesting is the fact that the rating exists to begin with. Ubisoft hasn’t budged from its original “sometime in 2024” release window, but the company also hasn’t elaborated any further on when this year we can expect to see it. The South Korean board is usually the first to post a game’s rating, and its appearance often comes a few weeks before official announcements.

Then again, May 4th is just around the corner, so Ubisoft could wait to reveal a Star Wars Outlaws release date then. Either way, with any luck, we won’t have much longer to wait.
