    <span> ILMxLAB has just announced that it is in development of a new virtual reality experience in collaboration with Oculus Studios, Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy's Edge, which will be released later this year. It will give players the chance to explore a new part of the Star Wars galaxy, as well as live their own adventure, and the original story will include new characters, but also feature ones they know and love.

    This new virtual reality experience will have several styles of gameplay, as well as several difficulty settings, to accommodate both VR gamers and Star Wars fans. This is what Vicki Dobbs Beck, ILMxLAB Executive-in-Charge had to say:

    The story will take place in Batuu, in between Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and will be set on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost from Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. It will extend the storytelling of the park like never before, and for the first time, at home. Scott Trowbridge, Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Executive, had this to say:

    Finally, Mike Verdu, VP of Content, AR/VR at Facebook, said:

    This looks like another great VR experience from the people that already gave us Vader Immortal, and will probably be the best alternative to the storytelling in Galaxy's Edge for the people that just can't go to the park.

    ILMxLAB is Lucasfilm’s immersive entertainment studio, pioneering a new era of interactive storytelling through virtual and mixed reality experiences. Working with acclaimed creators and designers, ILMxLAB creates living worlds, inviting you to step inside and become the hero of your own personal adventure.
