Star Wars Bat­tle­front: X-Wing VR Mis­sion

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.
