Hinted at briefly back in March, Star Wars Battlefront is getting a VR experience, its very own X-Wing mission. Though only shown off in a short trailer, players will take the pilot seat and lie out one of the ultimate Star Wars fantasies in Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission.
In development with Criterion, the studio behind the Burnout franchise, the game will come to exclusively to PSVR later this year.
“Virtual reality brings us one step closer to realizing this amazing dream of piloting an X-Wing in space. With this incredible new platform, you will be instantaneously transported from the comforts of your living room to an X-Wing cockpit in space. And with the artists at Criterion and DICE meticulously crafting every authentic detail, the experience feels more real than you can imagine,” Producer James Svensson promises fans in a post on the PlayStation Blog.
“Once you look outside your ship, you’ll start to take in and appreciate the sheer magnitude of the environment in which you’re sitting. Sure, you may think you know that a Blockade Runner or a Star Destroyer are big, but once you’re firing at Imperial forces alongside their hulls as you maneuver around their defenses, then you’ll truly comprehend the enormity of these starships.”
PSVR is releasing October 13, starting at $399. 50 different games will come to the platform before the end of the year.
