Star Wars Outlaws Sparks Criticism Over Games With $100+ 'Ultimate' Editions

Ubisoft's Star Wars Outlaws was treated to a fantastic-looking Story Trailer yesterday along with an August 2024 release date, and although there's plenty of hype around this one, it's also getting a bit of criticism for its price tag.

The standard version is what it is - $70 as expected - but the Gold Edition is $110, and the Ultimate Edition is a whopping $130. The latter two contain three days' worth of early access, along with the Season Pass and various other benefits in the "Ultimate" version specifically.

As it turns out, that top-end edition has been drawing criticism online since yesterday's trailer and pricing info dropped. Some fans aren't particularly happy with how expensive the full-fat version of Star Wars Outlaws is, with the below tweet laying out each version and what's included.

Now, we will say that this pricing structure is very similar to last year's Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora — also from Ubisoft — alongside lots of other big AAA games these days. Others have also pointed out that this is a fairly standard pricing model now, and even Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Odyssey from 2018 still has a $120 version on the Xbox Store - more than five years after launch.

Anyway, we're more than happy to stick to the standard $70 release in this case, but fans do seem to be taking note of these ever-increasing, bumper-edition game prices these days. Of course, there's also the option of subscribing to Ubisoft+ here - at a rate of $17.99 / £14.99 a month.
