‘Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge’ Gets First Reveal Trailer, Coming to Quest in 2020

15

Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge is ILMxLAB’s next foray into VR gaming. It’s been under wraps since it was announced earlier this summer, but today we’re getting our first real info dump.

The video itself is heavy on concept imagery, unfinished scenes, and developer insight into the game’s setting and supporting characters.

Here’s how ILMxLAB describes the action:

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.

It was also revealed that Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live, Star Wars Resistance) is set to play Seezelslak, an Azumel bartender with “a knack for storytelling,” the studio says in an Oculus blog post.

Debra Wilson (Mad TV, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order) is voicing Tara Rashin, Quarren pirate and leader of the local Guavian Death Gang working on Batuu. The player is apparently going to be pitted against the Death Gang at some point, the video reveals.

The game is said to feature both new and “iconic characters” from the Star Wars universe, and just who that is we simply don’t know yet. Moynihan makes mention of the Millennium Falcon, so we may be able to draw some conclusions. Since the game also appears to let you inhabit several characters as the result of Seezelslak’s tales, we may even get a chance to step aboard the ship itself.

There’s still no word on when the game is set to release, as it’s still dated as “coming later this year.”

    Not really anything to see yet. Hope it delivers.

  • heatlesssun

    Anything about coming to the Rift?

    • Jonathan Winters III

      Hear, hear!

  • Adrian Meredith

    What a pointless reveal

  • DeenVR

    Behind the scenes video, not a reveal

    Which makes me think the game will look like crap if they’re so afraid to show it.

    • More than “it will be crap”, it is “it is crap now”. Probably they’re behind in the development and now they prefer to show something else. But I doubt that ILMxLAB makes a crappy thing

    • Andrew Jakobs

      But then again, the experiences ILMxLAB already have are beautiful and excellent, so I don’t think this will be really crap.

  • Roskilde Experience

    YEY !! I can’t wait until i can hang out with porgs !! :P

  • I don’t know what to think. What do you do? We have some characters, but why?

  • mfx

    Nice to see behind the scenes and focus on (a few) creators instead of a classic trailer.
    For now it seems the texture and lighting are too basic but it’s early stage. I wish they push the lookdev/lighting quite far like alyx (with Quest limitations of course).

  • Hivemind9000

    This is not the reveal you are looking for. You can go about your business. Move along!

  • Pretty excited for the title, but the reveal video is so boring

  • Bumpy

    Exclusives are a cancer of gaming.

    • Nick Wallace

      Eventually, not at the beginning.

  • Warscent

    More wokeness no doubt. Kill it with fire.
