Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission is coming to PlayStation 4

No official videos have been posted yet, but here’s a version captured from the conference stream in the meantime.

The VR mission has been detailed further on the PlayStation Blog, where Criterion’s James Svensson explains the team’s vision for this experience.

“Piloting an X-Wing is an aspect of the Star Wars universe many of us have dreamed of experiencing”, he says. “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.”

The X-Wing VR Mission will launch later this year. PlayStation VR will release on October 13.
