Lobbies: Outlaws

Get Adobe Flash player


Outlaws is a first-person shooter released by LucasArts in 1997 using an enhanced version of the Jedi game engine, first seen in Star Wars: Dark Forces. It is one of the very few FPS games with a Wild West setting. CG animation sequences, with special filters to look hand drawn, play between each mission and set up the action in the next area. It's the first video game to feature sniper zoom.

Although not a huge financial success, it does have a strong cult-like following that is still strong more than a decade later.

In 1997, LucasArts released a patch (update 1.1) to add Glide and Aureal A3D and later in 2001, another patch to add Direct3D ability to the game, complementing the existing software rendering support.

The player can assume the role of 1 of 6 characters from the main game: Matt "Dr. Death" Jackson, "Bloody" Mary Nash, James Anderson, Chief Two-Feathers, "Gentleman" Bob Graham, and "Spittin'" Jack Sanchez. Each character has its own advantages and disadvantages in terms of speed/maneuverability, weapons selection, and resistance.

More than 1,500 custom multiplayer maps have been created since Outlaws was released. New maps continue to be released as of 2010.

On WarZone you can still play this FPS in a Wild Western style online with your friends in a dedicated Lobby!
