From the creators of VR titles like Vader Immortal comes another VR game titled Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge.
Lucasfilm’s award-winning immersive entertainment studio ILMxLab recently announced its recent title that they are developing currently. The new VR game is a new action-adventure virtual reality experience in collaboration with Oculus Studios. It will be coming later this year and will connect to Star Wars: Galaxy Edge lore.
ILM Executive-in-Charge Vicki Dobbs Beck has this to say:
We are so excited for fans to step into Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge later this year. his action-packed adventure not only speaks to the promise of connected and complementary experiences by extending the lore around Black Spire Outpost, it represents another meaningful step in ILMxLAB’s quest to transition from storytelling — one-way communication — to storyLIVING, where you’re inside a world making consequential choices that drive your experience forward.
The game will take place between Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and set on the outskirts of Battu’s Black Spire Outpost of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Players will get the chance to live their own adventure and explore part of a galaxy far, far away in virtual reality. It will have an original story and players will get to meet new and iconic characters from the franchise with multiple styles of gameplay and difficulty settings.
Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Executive Scott Trowbridge states:
The rich storytelling in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has redefined what a Disney park experience can be, and we are thrilled fans will have an opportunity to discover new stories, meet new characters and explore new regions of the planet Batuu in Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge. Now our guests can immerse themselves in these stories both inside and outside our parks.
