Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge is a new virtual reality video game experience from Lucasfilm, ILMxLAB, and Oculus that allows players to step into the world of Batuu, the planet where the Star Wars theme park expansions at Disneyland and Disney World exist in the franchise’s official canon. However, rather than creating an experience that just lets fans walk around a virtual version of Galaxy’s Edge, this is an action-packed video game shooter that allows you to explore areas surrounding Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, taking fans into more dangerous and wild territory where enemies are waiting at every turn and deadly creatures won’t hesitate to attack.
/Film was offered the opportunity to play through Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge on the Oculus Quest 2 headset before the game’s release on Oculus devices today.

Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge is a new virtual reality game for Oculus Quest that will allow fans to venture into the world of Batuu from Disney theme parks.

One of those stories will take us way back to the time of The High Republic, the setting for Lucasfilm’s new Star Wars publishing initiative that takes place 200 years before Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.
