Today at PlayStation’s State of Play event, we announced that Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge – Enhanced Edition is coming exclusively to PlayStation VR2 in 2023. Highly requested by fans, the experience has been rebuilt to take advantage of many of the enhancements the hardware has to offer, making your next visit to the wilds of Batuu even better. Check out the Enhanced Edition on PS VR2 with our first-look trailer, just released today:
In Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge – Enhanced Edition, you’ll begin your story as a droid repair technician who gets swept up into a grand adventure when you crash land on the planet Batuu following an attack by the Guavian Death Gang. This kicks off a series of extraordinary events, proving that anyone in the galaxy can become a hero.
As you live out your own unforgettable Star Wars adventure, you will be joined by fan-favorite characters like R2-D2, C-3PO (Anthony Daniels), Jedi Master Yoda (Frank Oz), and Hondo Ohnaka (Jim Cummings). You’ll also come face-to-face with new characters like the boisterous barkeep Seezelslak (Bobby Moynihan), treasure hunter Lens Kamo (Karla Crome), and Guavian Death Gang leader Tara Rashin (Debra Wilson).
In the experience, you’ll get to spend a lot of time at Seezelslak’s Cantina with the Azumel bartender, who will take you to other places and times in the Star Wars galaxy through his legendary Tales. Through him, you’ll get to live out the story of the Padawan-turned-Jedi Ady Sun’Zee (Ellie Araiza) in “The Temple of Darkness” and “The Sacred Garden.” And, if you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be a droid, your questions will be answered when you take on a peculiar bounty as the class four assassin droid IG-88 (Rhys Darby) in “The Bounty of Boggs Triff.”
Centrally anchored in the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the immersive and epic lands at Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, the experience complements and explores beyond the physical boundaries of the Parks. You’ll run into familiar characters like the owner of Black Spire Outpost’s Droid Depot, Mubo (Matthew Wood), who will get you set up with equipment and items throughout your journey, and the fan-favorite Dok-Ondar (Cory Rouse).
Utilizing the tech that the PS VR2 has to offer, the game pushes what’s possible with VR to immerse you within the world of Star Wars like never before. The high-fidelity visual experience will include headset-based controller tracking and eye tracking ensuring that your movements and direction you look are reflected as you play.
The audio and haptics also play a major role in the experience, where you’ll be able to hear the soundscape surround you with rich 3D audio and feel even the smallest detail with the adaptive triggers and haptics built into the PS VR2 Sense controllers and headset. Combining the sensory features that the PS VR2 has to offer, the experience will make you feel as though you are living within the Star Wars galaxy.
Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge – Enhanced Edition will be released as the complete experience when it comes to PS VR2. Additional details will be announced soon, so be sure to follow us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube for the most up-to-date news.
