Are you the best Astro-Mechanic? Find out In this free Star Wars VR Game!
ILMxLAB, creators of Trials on Tatooine have revisited the Star Wars universe to bring us a new VR experience. Star Wars: Droid Repair Bay sees you in General Leia’s crew as their Astro-Mechanic. It is your job to repair the bb-8 units damaged by the First Order.
In the recent press release by Starwars.com, Daniel Aasheim (senior producer at ILMxLAB) was questioned about what players can expect from the droid’s they will be working on. “Each and every one of them is as full of personality – and attitude – as our friend BB-8. Being a part of the Lucasfilm companies allowed us to leverage amazing talent on the design, and work directly with the Story Group to bring true authenticity to each character, really bringing them to life in the Star Wars universe.”
I have yet to try the experience but looking at the video on Steam makes me very keen to boot up my vive the minute I get home. This looks to be a very well polished game from an established studio though I do expect it to be a fairly short experience.
If you do not own a VR device you can still get in on the action via a short 360 degree video ILMxLAB have uploaded to Youtube.
