Have you been looking for a reason to pony up for PlayStation VR this fall? Maybe today’s Gamescom 2016 announcement of Star Wars Battlefront Rogue One: X-Wing VR Mission will help make your mind up.
Star Wars Battlefront Rogue One: X-Wing VR Mission is a new expansion for owners of Star Wars Battlefront on PS4 and PlayStation VR that will cost absolutely nothing. As the name so clearly infers, players will get to sit in the cockpit of a Rebellion X-Wing fighter. Many dogfights against Imperial Tie Fighters are certain to ensue.
Criterion Games, the internal EA studio behind the Speeder Bikes in Star Wars Battlefront, headed up development on Star Wars Battlefront Rogue One: X-wing VR Mission. Per James Svensson, Producer at Criterion Games, the mission takes place near the belly of an Imperial Star Destroyer within the timeline of Star Wars: Rogue One.
The Star Wars Battlefront Rogue One: X-wing VR Mission release date falls sometime this holiday season.
Here’s the Star Wars: Rogue One trailer again which is full of X-Wing action.
