More details for Star Wars Battlefront‘s PlayStation 4 exclusive X-Wing VR mission have emerged today. Thanks to a new post on Sony’s PlayStation blog, we now know that Criterion Games – known for their work on the Burnout and Need For Speed series – will be helping to develop the bonus mission alongside DICE.
Speaking on the blog, producer at Criterion Games James Svensson said:
Piloting an X-Wing is an aspect of the Star Wars universe many of us have dreamed of experiencing. It’s something from the films we remember watching with awe, and even re-enacted throughout our lives.
Virtual reality brings us one step closer to realising 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.
All owners of Star Wars Battlefront on PlayStation 4 will get access to the X-Wing VR mission for free when it launches, but it’s unclear when that will be. PlayStation VR launches on October 13, but X-Wing VR wasn’t listed as one of the launch titles for the device.
More details will undoubtedly come out of E3 over the next few days, so stay tuned.
