Outrage as Ubisoft slaps $130 price tag on Star Wars Outlaws Ultimate Edition

Following Ubisoft's announcement, fans erupted on social media, calling out the hefty price of the game's ultimate edition. One X, formerly Twitter user wrote, "Defending a Game's overpriced editions just to enter a subscription model has to be the stupidest thing I've ever seen, crazy thing is some people will roll with it and say "oh just purchase Ubisoft+""

Another said, “Until games start launching in a proper state, I'm no longer paying for early access.” One more wrote, “The Ultima edition is $200 here. It's the first game to even touch that and is more than twice the price of the standard edition. Luckily Ubisoft games are normally discounted in a month or 2 so if anyone wants it they don't have to pay half the price of the series s for it.”
