Battle Stormtroopers with a Lightsaber in the new Star Wars VR experience

Lucasfilm’s latest creation should get Star Wars fans rushing to pick up an HTC Vive headset. The studio’s immersive media arm, ILMxLab, has released a new VR experience titled ‘Star Wars: Trials on Tatooine’.

Road to VR reports that it’s a 10-minute long experience that sees you meet up with Han Solo on the rocky planet Tatooine and protect the Millenium Falcon from attacks by Stormtroopers and TIE Fighters.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

And yes, you get to use a Lightsaber to slay your enemies.

The short trailer gives us but a taste of what to expect from the actual piece. If it plays half as good as it looks, we’ll probably need a lot more than 10 minutes with a Lightsaber in our hands.
