Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission shown at E3, coming exclusively to PS VR

Criterion Games teams with DICE on brand new Battlefront VR experience

On behalf of everyone at Criterion Games and DICE, I’m really excited to be able to share the first details about Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission, coming exclusively to PlayStation VR later this year.

At Criterion, putting players directly into the heart of a vehicle gaming experience is one of our biggest passions. With games like our Burnout series, the Need for Speed games we’ve made, and even the speeder bike missions a lot of you played in Star Wars Battlefront, this focus has been deeply felt. And now we’re applying it to something new, something really special.

Piloting an X-Wing is an aspect of the Star Wars universe many of us have dreamed of experiencing. 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 realising 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.

Once you look outside your ship, you’ll start to take in and appreciate the sheer magnitude of the environment in which you’re sitting. Sure, you may think you know that a Blockade Runner or a Star Destroyer are big, but once you’re firing at Imperial forces alongside their hulls as you maneuver around their defenses, then you’ll truly comprehend the enormity of these starships.
It’s intensely exciting!

Best of all, this amazing offering will be free for all owners of Star Wars Battlefront on PS4. Millions of you have joined the Star Wars Battlefront community since the game’s launch in December and we couldn’t think of a better reward for that loyalty and take your experience to a completely new level.

We hope you enjoy playing it as much as we are enjoying making it.

Hi.

Will this also be offered to other PlayStation owners / PS VR owners at a cost? I own Battlefront and love it so no problem. Just checking for my news story :D

this is not good news at all. Exclusives should not even exist for VR at this point. VR systems cost people well into the thousands. You cannot expect people to adopt this new technology when they aren’t even sure which system is going to have the most games in their genre when each of these systems only has about 30 games at this point. it’s too damn early for exclusives. Stuff like this just keeps people from buying into VR. good job. I just decided to wait another 2 years. not a good plan at all. open up these games to all platforms until there is at least enough games for people to make an informed decision. no one in their right mind is going to buy all of the main 3 VR headsets with how much they cost especially people in countries where the exchange rate doubles how much these things cost.

We close the comments for posts after 30 days.
