Next month, Lucasfilm and ILMxLAB will be releasing the VR experience, Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge. In the game, you appear to play a smuggler type who helps Seezelslak (Bobby Moynihan), the Azumel bartender who guides you through the game.
The new trailer below shows off how some of the gameplay works and also shows Jedi Master Yoda voiced by Frank Oz making an appearance. Along with Yoda, it looks like players will be able to take on the role of a new Padawan character named Ady Sun’Zee and wield a lightsaber. This looks really fun!
In this action-adventure virtual reality experience, you’ll travel to the planet of Batuu and get caught up in your own unforgettable story. Fight alongside classic characters, and face intimidating villains, as you explore all-new regions and eras of the Star Wars galaxy. With multiple difficulty settings, Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge has been crafted for all types of players and fans.
The experience takes place on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the epic land at Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. You’ll play as a droid technician operating near Batuu, but when a group of Guavian Death Gang pirates attack you’ll be forced to jettison the ship’s mysterious cargo and head for an escape pod. After crashing on Batuu, you’ll explore the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost, and learn how the actions of one person can change the galaxy.
Tales from Galaxy’s Edge will be available on Oculus Quest starting November 19.
