2016-07-25

Disney Corporation is not afraid of carrying out risky experiments – it produces more and more movies and games with the Star Wars universe. They will screen the adventures of Han Solo and EA will release a videogame. They moved beyond it and decided to invade virtual reality. 

 

 

 

The game Trials on Tatooine is already available for download. It needs powerful gaming platform and VR headset HTC Vive. It was developed by Lucasfilm’s ILMxLAB. The studio has earlier released a teaser “Lost Droids” for Magic Leap. 

The story starts with Han Solo asking to repair the legendary Millenium Falcon and a gamer has to fly away from Tatooine. The gamer is given a spacecraft and droid R2-D2 gives him a lightsaber which will let him fight against the Empire.

But the most interesting thing is that soon they are releasing a VR game with the worst hero ever – Darth Vader. A small teaser written by David Goyer was shown during the event devoted to the saga.
