Double Damage Games has announced Rebel Galaxy Outlaw, a prequel to 2015’s Rebel Galaxy.
The upcoming entry is set 34 years before the events of the original game and is described as “a blue-collar space combat adventure packed with outlaws, explosions, gleefully unrealistic spaceflight, and a hell of a soundtrack.”
In Rebel Galaxy Outlaw, players will take on the role of Juno Markev, an outlaw and smuggler who went straight until an encounter at a shady watering hole goes bad and she is forced back into a life of crime.
“This has got to be the most ambitious game I’ve ever worked on,” Travis Baldree, Co-Founder of Double Damage Games, said. “We took what worked from the last title, and then went a little crazy. It’s got a stronger focus on story and place, a huge jump in detail, and while it still works great for folks with a HOTAS at home, I think we’ve managed to make space combat accessible and fun for everybody else in a way that nobody has managed before. We’ve got a lot more to share in the months ahead.”
Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is scheduled to launch in the first quarter of 2019 for PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
