Trailers Released For New Star Wars, Batman VR Games
VR games are coming for all of us, or at least for all of our favorite properties. After the sweet new Star Trek VR game we showed you yesterday, two new games were unveiled today that might be even better: Batman Arkham VR and Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission

First up is the Batman game, whose trailer doesn't show any actual game footage but is narrated by Mark Hamill's Joker - so that's a major plus. According to the game's official synopsis:

Opening quote
"Batman: Arkham VR immerses you in the Dark Knight's Universe and redefines what it means to be the Batman. Experience Gotham City through the eyes of the World's Greatest Detective in an all new Arkham mystery. Think like Batman. Utilize his legendary gadgets in Virtual Reality to unravel a plot that threatens the lives of Batman's closest allies."
Closing quote


We've all wanted to be Batman at one time or another, and this looks like our best chance to do so.



Then there's the Star Wars game. Like the title suggests, you pilot an X-Wing in the game, which, just like being Batman, has always been on our bucket list. Here's the official description:

Opening quote
"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 realizing 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!"
Closing quote


The trailer features actual game footage, which looks amazing, and the game is even free for anyone who already owns Star Wars: Battlefront for Playstation 4. Sounds like a pretty good deal to us.
