Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission
Developer Criterion Games, DICE Publisher EA Format PSVR Release 2016
With every spare pair of hands within EA’s global network of studios now working on Star Wars, Criterion has abandoned the extreme-sports prototype shown at E3 two years ago to work on the most lucrative intellectual property in the galaxy. Yet, unlike EA’s other Star Wars offerings, it is unlikely to make any money, positioned as it is as a free download for Star Wars Battlefront.
Criterion’s few words on the subject suggest that this will be a VR experience, rather than a game. It says we will step into the cockpit of an X-Wing, and marvel at the galaxy around us. But there’s nothing about firing a gun, or even controlling the craft. Still, there are plenty of fully controllable VR space games out there, and if this has a Death Star trench run, you can stick your
EVE: Valkyrie up your thermal exhaust port.
