Rebel Galaxy Outlaw made my Most Anticipated Games of 2019 list, with a bullet. After a year-long wait since its reveal, Developer Double Damage announced this morning that the space sim launches on August 13. That's less than a month away. My Wing Commander: Privateer feels are bringing a tear to my broken-down-Americana eye.
This video PSA comes from a squid-looking character named Sandar D'Truz, who's sort of become the face of the Rebel Galaxy series. The original Rebel Galaxy plus this prequel, Rebel Galaxy Outlaw, makes a series, right? Two in a row. Sorry, Sandar's sense of humor is a bit tryhard. That's kind of his thing. But any news about Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is good news. If you're wondering why this space sim gets me, here's a three-hour whiskey-tinged gameplay video to play on your second monitor at work.
Rebel Galaxy Outlaw launches on PC with a one-year exclusive on the Epic Game Store on August 13. Steam (and other PC storefronts) will get the game in August of next year.

Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is a prequel to 2015's Rebel Galaxy, this time dropping you right into the cockpit. You'll inhabit the role of Juno Markev, an outlaw and smuggler who went straight and settled down until events conspired to drag her back into the life. After an encounter in a shady watering hole goes bad, your ship is trashed, and you find yourself in debt to an old friend and casino owner who gives you a rustbucket and some words of advice. Packed with exciting combat, unique ships, and tons of great music, Rebel Galaxy Outlaw drops you into a retro future steeped in blue-collar Americana.
