Have you always wanted to know what people cook and eat in a galaxy far, far away? Well, it sounds like Star Wars Outlaws may give players the chance to discover that for themselves, according to a cryptic tease from Ubisoft Massive creative director Julian Gerighty.
In a panel covering the game today at San Diego Comic-Con, Gerighty participated in a discussion regarding details of Tatooine and the new location the team created, the moon Toshara. After chatting about speeders and geographic aesthetics, Gerighty concluded the panel with a tease of two potential surprises one might encounter on Toshara:
"There are a couple surprises I don’t want to spoil," he said. "There is a particular predator on Toshara that is mind-blowingly cool. So if you have a fear of frogs, this might not be the game for you. It’s okay, it’s very rare. The second thing is that food is incredibly important to the world of Star Wars. And if you enjoy food and discovering alien concoctions, this is going to be an exciting experience for you."
Did…Gerighty just confirm a cooking system? It's not certain. But so many games, including open world games, these days implement cooking systems it wouldn't be a shock. The Star Wars universe hasn't really seen an in-depth, interactive cooking scenario before (aside from a series of official cookbooks), so including one in Outlaws would be a major shift in allowing an audience to experience the unique cuisines present across the galaxy. Blue milk, anyone?
We also interviewed the team from Ubisoft Massive and Lucasfilm about some of these same topics for an even more in-depth look on Outlaws.
