Some amazing news this morning from a galaxy not so far away—ILMxLAB just announced Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, a new VR experience being developed in collaboration with Oculus Studios. The original story will include multiple styles of gameplay and difficulty settings to bring in a wide variety of players, and it’s coming out later this year.
Set between the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on the planet of Batuu, Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge takes place on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the epic new land at Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge will let Star Wars fans and VR gamers alike explore the Star Wars galaxy like never before through all-new, interactive adventures.
“We’re very happy to collaborate with ILMxLAB again on Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge,” says Facebook VP of Content, AR/VR Mike Verdu. “VR is an incredibly powerful storytelling medium; this experience will immerse fans in a deep and thrilling adventure within the Star Wars galaxy, as they are transported to impossible places through the power of virtual reality.”
