It’s time to jump into hyperspace and back to Black Spire Output in Star Wars: Tales From The Galaxy’s Edge.
“We are so excited for fans to step into Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge later this year,” said Vicki Dobbs Beck, ILMxLAB Executive-in-Charge. “This action-packed adventure not only speaks to the promise of connected and complementary experiences by extending the lore around Black Spire Outpost, it represents another meaningful step in ILMxLAB’s quest to transition from storytelling – one-way communication – to storyLIVING, where you’re inside a world making consequential choices that drive your experience forward.”
Tales From The Galaxy’s Edge will let players live their own adventure and explore “a galaxy, far, far, away” in virtual reality. The title features an original story that takes place on Batuu and set between the events of The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker with new and iconic characters from the Star Wars universe.
“The rich storytelling in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has redefined what a Disney park experience can be, and we are thrilled fans will have an opportunity to discover new stories, meet new characters and explore new regions of the planet Batuu in Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge,” shared Scott Trowbridge, Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Executive. “Now our guests can immerse themselves in these stories both inside and outside our parks.”
It’ll also feature multiple styles of gameplay and difficulty settings to Star Wars fans of all ages.
Tales From The Galaxy’s Edge is being developed by Lucasfilm’s immersive entertainment studio, ILMxLAB, who also worked on Vader Immortal for Oculus Quest and Rift along with Oculus Studios.
“We’re very happy to collaborate with ILMxLAB again on Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge. VR is an incredibly powerful storytelling medium; this experience will immerse fans in a deep and thrilling adventure within the Star Wars galaxy, as they are transported to impossible places through the power of virtual reality,” said Mike Verdu, VP of Content, AR/VR at Facebook.
Star Wars: Tales From The Galaxy’s Edge will be released late this year. No platforms haven’t been announced.
