SAN FRANCISCO, February 15, 2023 — ILMxLAB, Lucasfilm’s award-winning immersive storytelling studio, today debuted the official trailer for Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge – Enhanced Edition, a PlayStation®VR2 (PS VR2) launch title releasing Wednesday, February 22. The trailer was shared exclusively on StarWars.com, and fans eager to play on day one are able to pre-order the experience from the PlayStation®Store here.
Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge – Enhanced Edition is an action-adventure virtual reality experience that follows the story of a droid repair technician who gets swept up into a grand adventure after crash landing on the planet Batuu. This kicks off a series of extraordinary events, proving that anyone in the galaxy can become a hero.
In the official trailer, fans learn of multiple, growing threats that lurk in the wilds of Batuu with villains like Guavian Death Gang cell leader Tara Rashin (Debra Wilson), tyrant Baron Attsmun (Mark Rolston), and First Order commanding officer Lt. Gauge (Daman Mills). With the help of new characters developed for the experience like Seezelslak (Bobby Moynihan) and Lens Kamo (Karla Crome), and fan-favorites including R2-D2, C-3PO (Anthony Daniels), Dok-Ondar (Cory Rouse), Hondo Ohnaka (Jim Cummings), and Mubo (Matthew Wood), players will save Batuu as they embark on their own Star Wars adventure.
The trailer also shares a glimpse of the three legendary Tales that players will be transported to while at Seezelslak’s Cantina. Spanning multiple eras and places in the Star Wars galaxy, fans will experience lightsaber and Force gameplay while living out the story of Padawan-turned-Jedi Ady Sun’Zee (Ellie Araiza) in “Temple of Darkness” and “The Sacred Garden.” In “The Bounty of Boggs Triff,” players will battle their way up an enemy-ridden skyscraper on Nar Shaddaa, as they try to recover a bounty for Neeva (Anika Noni Rose) while playing as the class four assassin droid IG-88 (Rhys Darby).
Exclusive to PS VR2, the Enhanced Edition has been rebuilt to take advantage of the hardware capabilities including eye tracking and foveated rendering, headset feedback, adaptive triggers and haptic feedback with PS VR2 Sense controllers, and dynamic 3D audio, among others. Combined together, the experience will bring fans to a galaxy far, far away in an even more immersive way as they live out their own action-packed Star Wars story.
