The release of the upcoming video game Star Wars Outlaws is already being slammed by fans due to a certain restriction on physical copies.

Later this year, the open-world video game Star Wars Outlaws is slated to be released for PS5, Windows, and Xbox Series X/S. It focuses on an outlaw scoundrel in a story that is set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

Recently, the story trailer and release date was finally revealed. While it has generated some hype, there are fans who are also not happy about a particular restriction.

A recent report revealed that fans are not happy that an Internet connection is still required to install Star Wars Outlaws in the physical copies of the game for PS5 or Xbox Series X/S.

While the concept of requiring an Internet connection to install the game on the disc is not new, fans are still calling it a bad practice.

"It unfortunately seems that Ubisoft has started putting that 'comfortable not owning your games' into effect," Reddit user u/Stealthinater1234 wrote in a comment.

"There's no good reason why a single player game can't have a fully playable build on the disc, it's an artificial block just like the Avatar game to make sure you can't play without the patch, just purely out of malice."

Fans have also expressed their frustration on X:

Some fans have also expressed their disinterest in purchasing the game after learning the restrictions, especially with the massive price that they have to pay for the physical copy.

So far, Ubisoft has not commented on the backlash and it is likely that they are retaining their current plans for its physical release despite some of the fan responses.

Star Wars Outlaws is scheduled to release on August 30.
