Super excited for Star Wars: Squadrons? Well don’t forget that Oculus and ILMxLAB are developing Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge with new details now confirmed to arrive next Tuesday, 28th July.
In an announcement today, fans will have to wait a week to get the first in-depth story details for Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge since the title’s first unveiling a couple of months ago.
A collaborative effort between Oculus and ILMxLAB, what we know so far is that Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge will be set between Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Featuring new and iconic characters from the franchise hopefully these will be some of the new details released.
The videogame takes place on the planet of Batuu at the Black Spire Outpost. Said to provide: “multiple styles of gameplay and difficulty settings to accommodate a wide variety of players,” it’s unclear what form this will take, a big open-world adventure or a more tightly controlled experience similar to Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series.
There’s no indication at the moment when Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge will be released this year and what headsets it’ll support; although it’s fair to assume Oculus Quest and Rift are a given.
As VRFocus reported for Star Wars day in May, the franchise has become one of the biggest supporters of VR with a range of content previously released. That’s set to continue in 2020, with Star Wars: Squadrons arriving on 2nd October supporting PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, Valve Index and HTC Vive headsets. As more Star Wars VR details are released, VRFocus will keep you updated.
