Star Wars is big business, so it's really no surprise that the franchise will be looking into virtual reality to expand on the galaxy far, far away. And now we have a first glimpse with this early trailer for Trials on Tatooine.
Yep, this experience will let you step inside the Star Wars universe with a VR headset and use the wireless controllers to actually weild a lightsabre! It's a perfect implementation of the technology, with 1 to 1 controls and vibration allowing you to feel every blaster hit and 360 degree graphics enveloping you in the world.
The trailer refers to it as 'a cinematic virtual reality experiment' which strong suggests that this will mostly be an on the rails experience, with limited moments where you can actually block those shots with your trusty weapon. The background graphics look to be pre-rendered with some fairly basic 3D models moving over them. As this is an early trailer and an 'experiment' it likely wont look like this when it launches for the HTC Vive at some point in the future.
