A new trailer for the upcoming Star Wars VR title, Tales From the Galaxy’s Edge was revealed, along with new details on the story and some familiar faces.
During today’s Facebook Connect event, game director Jose Perez III revealed some new key details for the upcoming VR game, Star Wars: Tales From the Galaxy’s Edge. These include some new casting information (Anthony Daniels is back as C-3P0), the story, as well as a quick teaser to enjoy:
“Along with the joy of working with the super-talented team at ILMxLAB, I am so thrilled to bring C-3PO to life again in this fascinating dimension,” said Anthony Daniels, C-3PO. “I love it that fans will actually be able to be a part of his perilous adventures, standing beside him, on the distant planet of Batuu. It may be virtual reality, but believe me, reality will quickly take over as players personally interact with C-3PO right in the middle of the action. I hope fans will be as amazed as I am.”
Perez also announced that fans will come face-to-face with Master Yoda in one of Seezelslak’s legendary tales, which will transport players to different eras in the Star Wars galaxy.
“At ILMxLAB, we have been hard at work, crafting tales, and expanding the world of Black Spire Outpost, which was created by our friends at Walt Disney Imagineering,” said Perez. “Fans will be able to explore the wilds of Batuu and live out a lighthearted Star Wars experience that will continue to evolve over time. There’s something really special about standing face to face with iconic characters like C-3PO and Yoda, and we can’t wait for our fans to step into Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge this holiday season.”
In Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, fans play a droid repair technician who crash lands on Batuu after a pirate attack. In typical Star Wars fashion, they’ll get swept up in a grand adventure on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost. Players can hang out with Seezelslak (Bobby Moynihan) in his cantina and experience his legendary tales. They will also receive important missions to complete in the wilds of Batuu, encountering new and iconic characters along the way, like the pirate Tara Rashin (Debra Wilson) and C-3PO (Anthony Daniels).
Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge will hit the Oculus this Holiday season.
