Watch a Teaser for EA's New PS4 Star Wars X-Wing Virtual Reality Experience
As we wrote yesterday, there's a ton of new games heading to the Star Wars franchise over the next few years, which is probably a good thing because most fans have a list as long as their arm when it comes to things they want from future Star Wars games. Star Wars Battlefront might have ticked off a few of those items, but most of us remain distinctly unsatisfied.

Arguably one of the most important things for Star Wars fan is a game that captures the magic of space battles, just as the likes of TIE Fighter and X-Wing vs TIE Fighter did back in the good old days. At E3 this week, EA showed that they've been listening to the moans and groans of fans by revealing footage of a new space battle based game....made exclusively for virtual reality.


The catchily named Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission does look awesome, after all, who doesn't want to feel like they're actually flying an X-Wing right into a dogfight in space? Unfortunately though, the names functional accuracy might actually mean that this VR game is more limited in scope. The press release for the game described the VR experience as an "all-new mission," which means this is likely just a brief tester for VR early-adopters, and not an expansive gaming experience. Still, this is just the latest in a long line of signs that suggest the future for Star Wars gaming is incredibly bright.

Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission will be free to all owners of Star Wars Battlefront on PS4.
