Double Damage, the team behind Rebel Galaxy (and that awesome Star Wars pitch from 2016) have a new space shooter on the way. It’s a prequel called Rebel Galaxy Outlaw, and it looks very cool.

The original has a lot of fans and is loads of fun, but I was always a little put off by its stodgy ship design and overall aesthetic. Outlaw looks like an entirely different game set in an entirely different universe.

The cowboy influence from the first game has been jacked up past 11, and the fighter designs look fantastic. I’ve been wanting a new Privateer game for decades, and this definitely looks to be scratching the same itch.

There’s even an intro video by Titmouse (Korra, Venture Bros, etc):

It’s coming to PC, PS4 and Switch in early 2019.


  • Interesting. Rebel Galaxy was … strangely playable. It played more like a space version of ship combat AC Black Flag than a true space shooter – very much on a two-dimensional plane, blasting broadsides at enemy battleships. Which was fun, but a bit limited. If they can get the combat right, I’m in.

    • Damn right. The 1st was ace and this just upped the ante. Gonna have to give you an IOU on the sexy time tho, Nancy. The missus don’t like competition 😉
