Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge – Enhanced Edition was announced for PS VR2 during Sony’s State of Play in September. Galaxy’s Edge was originally released for the Oculus Quest in 2020. This VR-exclusive title was developed by ILMxLab and featured an in-game adventure based on Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort Ride. This port will be released sometime in 2023, exclusively for the PlayStation VR2.
Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge – Enhanced Edition will be revamped with several new features that promise to take advantage of PlayStation 5 and PSVR 2. Players control a droid repair technician who crash lands on the planet Batuu. From then on, you will explore a world and participate in missions directly inspired by Galaxy’s Edge Disney theme park experience.
Since this is a Star wars adventure, lots of characters from the movies come through the game. R2-D2, C-3PO, and the little green Jedi Master himself, Yoda, all make appearances. The Guavian Death Band are the main enemies you will have to deal with throughout the experience.
Characters from the theme park such as Mubo and the Ithorian merchant Dok-Ondar appear and will give players quests to uncover. Certain attractions from the theme park will also become environments for players to explore.
The enhanced edition will be designed to take advantage of the PSVR 2 headset-based controller and eye tracking to keep movements accurate and push the visuals above the original Oculus Quest release. It will also take advantage of the 3D audio and haptics provided by the PSVR 2 Sense controller and headset. New content was not mentioned as part of the announcement.
Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge – Enhanced Edition will be released as a complete experience and further details will be announced along with a firm release date at a later date.
