‘Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge’ Coming to Quest This Holiday Season, Trailer Here

11

Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge is ILMxLAB’s next pet VR project for Quest, and the studio today revealed a new glimpse of the action-adventure experience.

Update (September 16th, 2020): ILMxLAB has now confirmed that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is launching this holiday season on the Quest platform. Check out the game’s first teaser trailer below, however brief it may be.

Original Title (September 14th, 2020): The game’s reveal trailer (linked below) didn’t reveal very much when it was published in late July, but a side effect of this is there’s still plenty to uncover around the upcoming Star Wars game.

Here’s how ILMxLAB describes the game:

Your in-experience character is a droid repair technician. Following a crash landing on Batuu as a result of a pirate attack, you’ll quickly be swept up into a grand adventure on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost. Chatting with Seezelslak in his cantina, you’ll find yourself transported to other locations and times in the Star Wars galaxy, spurred on by his larger-than-life tales.

Additionally, it was revealed earlier this summer that Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live, Star Wars Resistance) is set to play Seezelslak, an Azumel bartender. Debra Wilson (Mad TV, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order) is voicing Tara Rashin, a Quarren pirate and leader of the local Guavian Death Gang working on Batuu.

In the story, it appears you’ll be jumping through various tales told by Seezelslak which surround a conflict brought on by the Death Gang.

Although we still don’t know exactly when the game is set to release, we’re certain to find out more on Wednesday, September 16th when Facebook Connect kicks off. We’ll be following along, so make sure to check back in for all things AR/VR to come from the livestreams.

    It sais: Quest exclusive…. for real… no PCVR?

    Yeah, Quest is king for movement but the graphics are subpar…. It is a completely different experience, i.e. playing Vader immortal on Quest vs PCVR. First is for movement freedom (i.e. lightsaver fights), second is for visual fidelity (i.e. the Awe experience).

    • TechPassion

      Refresh the main page about Quest 2.

      • Bryan Slygh

        That will help but it’s still nowhere near a pc and that’s before zen 3 rdna 2 or nvidia 3000 series.

    • Andrew Jakobs

      Yeah, it’s a shame, we still haven’t got the darth vader experience on PCVR, as it’s just released on PSVR I expect it to be released on PCVR in the near future..

      • Zerofool

        If you’re talking about the three Vader Immortal episodes, they were released on the Oculus store for Rift shortly after the Quest versions. If by PCVR you mean Steam… yeah, not happening.

        • Andrew Jakobs

          Yeah I meant Steam, but who knows, I think the other ILM x-lab experiences were at start also Oculus exclusives but in the end ended up on steam (like droid factory). But then again, I never even expected it to arrive on the PSVR either..

          • Zerofool

            I’m not sure those short (free) experiences were funded by Oculus. Trials on Tatooine was a room-scale experiment (one of the first ones by a studio of that caliber) that never made it to the Oculus store to my knowledge (back then, the Rift was a seated-only experience) – basically it’s a SteamVR exclusive, while the Droid Repair Bay experience was a glorified ad for ep. IIX (a great one, still). But yeah… who knows. I won’t be holding my breath for SteamVR versions of any of the Oculus-funded exclusives.

  • Bartholomew

    I hope it’s a real VR game and not another experience of about 45-50 minutes.

    • TechPassion

      Yes, but something AAA is better than nothing.

  • Wild Dog

    I hope eventually we get a star wars mmo in VR.

    Star Wars Galaxies VR would be the bees knees.

  • Totius

    The graphics look terrible.. i don’t expect anything decent from this game..it looks incredibly rushed. If it was something decent i guess it’d have been announced differently
