The Trails of Tatooine Star Wars VR Experience is coming to Steam on Monday

 

The Trails of Tatooine Star Wars VR Experience is coming to Steam on Monday, July 18th free of charge for users of the HTC Vive VR Headset. 

This game will utilise the HTC View's motion controls in order to provide the HTC Vive with its first official lightsaber game, where the player will deflect blaster bolts from Stormtroopers in order to allow your allies to escape. 

  The Trails of Tatooine Star Wars VR Experience is coming to Steam on Monday 

This VR experience was created by ILMxLAB, who was formed last year, combining the talents of Lucasfilm, Industrial Light & Magic and Skywalker Sound in order to create immersive entertainment and storytelling experiences with VR.  

 

Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) and parent company Lucasfilm, Ltd. announce the formation of ILM Experience Lab (ILMxLAB), a new division that will draw upon the talents of Lucasfilm, ILM and Skywalker Sound. ILMxLAB combines compelling storytelling, technological innovation and world-class production to create immersive entertainment experiences.

For several years, the company has been investing in real-time graphics – building a foundation that allows ILMxLAB to deliver interactive imagery at a fidelity never seen before. As this new dimension in storytelling unfolds, ILMxLAB will develop virtual reality, augmented reality, real-time cinema, theme park entertainment and narrative-based experiences for future platforms.

  

 

Below is a trailer for the upcoming Star Wars VR experience, which will showcase a battle scene on Tatooine where you will play a Jedi, who is claimed to be an Apprentice of Luke Skywalker, who is waiting on a delivery from Han Solo. 

This game will not just be a Jedi combat sim, but is an effort to try some in depth story telling in VR, making use of expert audio design and great voice acting on order to deliver a realistic experience that cannot be matched by a film. 

 

 

VR has a lot of potential in the future of entertainment, so much so that developers are only now starting to scratch the surface of what is possible on the VR platform.

Hopefully, we will be able to experience plenty of great VR stories and games in the years to come, but also that this technology can become cheap enough for mainstream users to adopt and for it to receive the full attention of the developer community.
