Originally shown off at this year’s Star Wars Celebration, Star Wars: Trials of Tatooine will be available for free starting on July 18.
Built as a VR experience for the HTC Vive, the short playable game allows players to take control of a young padawan, who must help Luke Skywalker to regroup and rebuild the Jedi Order, following the downfall of Darth Sidious and Darth Vadar. As detailed in a press release, Trials of Tatooine was developed in part with Lucasfilm executives:
“Developed under the guidance of Rob Bredow, Lucasfilm’s chief technology officer, and co-written by Bredow and Star Wars canon-keeper Pablo Hidalgo, Trials on Tatooine allows you to truly step into the Star Wars universe for the first time. Now anyone with a Vive can pick up a lightsaber and help defend a galaxy far, far away.”
