If Star Trek: Bridge Crew appeased those Trekkies pining for a chance to live out their life-long Starfleet fantasies in virtual reality, Criterion Games and DICE are ensuring Star Wars fans aren’t left behind.
During Sony’s barnstorming E3 presser this evening, the studios lifted the lid on those X-Wing VR missions that will be coming exclusively to Star Wars Battlefront on PS4.
No exact timeline was given for the free add-on – other than the fact it’ll drop before the year’s end – though a post on PlayStation Blog offers some insight into what fans can look forward to.
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 reenacted throughout our lives.
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.
In all likelihood, the VR expansion will deploy in and around October 13, when PlayStation VR will begin rolling out for the masses. But are you anticipating the chance to dive into Star Wars Battlefront in virtual reality? Let us know by commenting below!
