Introducing Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission

James Svensson's Avatar Posted by Producer, Criterion Games

On behalf of everyone at Criterion Games and DICE, I’m really excited to be able to share the first details about Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission, coming exclusively to PlayStation VR later this year.

Star Wars Battlefront X-Wing for PS VR

At Criterion, putting players directly into the heart of a vehicle gaming experience is one of our biggest passions. With games like our Burnout series, the Need for Speed games we’ve made, and even the speeder bike missions a lot of you played in Star Wars Battlefront, this focus has been deeply felt. And now we’re applying it to something new, something really special.

Piloting an X-Wing is an aspect of the Star Wars universe many of us have dreamed of experiencing. It’s something from the films we remember watching with awe, and even reenacted throughout our lives.

Virtual reality brings us one step closer to realizing this amazing dream of piloting an X-wing in space. With this incredible new platform, you will be instantaneously transported from the comforts of your living room to an X-Wing cockpit in space. And with the artists at Criterion and DICE meticulously crafting every authentic detail, the experience feels more real than you can imagine.

Once you look outside your ship, you’ll start to take in and appreciate the sheer magnitude of the environment in which you’re sitting. Sure, you may think you know that a Blockade Runner or a Star Destroyer are big, but once you’re firing at Imperial forces alongside their hulls as you maneuver around their defenses, then you’ll truly comprehend the enormity of these starships. It’s intensely exciting!

Best of all, this amazing offering will be free for all owners of Star Wars Battlefront on PS4. Millions of you have joined the Star Wars Battlefront community since the game’s launch in December and we couldn’t think of a better reward for that loyalty and take your experience to a completely new level.

We hope you enjoy playing it as much as we are enjoying making it.

Is this a standalone title? I used to play Xwing & Tie Fighter on pc years ago and this might just push me over the edge to buy a VR…

    It’s nothing more than a gimmick, it will wear off quickly.

When I first saw this I was hoping that this means the return of the space battles from Star Wars Battlefront II on the PS2. But when I saw it was just something that requires the VR headset, I was a bit disappointed.

Free if we already own Battlefront! Awesome!

    That is because it is nothing more than a crappy gimmick.

    @tobipup must be nice to be delusional enough to believe you can see into the future

    Did you notice that it says mission not missions. which means ONE only.

@tobipup Did you notice that he said experience not experiences? Which means ONE only. Why do you have to try and crap on everyone else’s excitement?

    @tobipup it’s free, so what’s the issue? Yes you’ll need the PSVR to play it but if you’re buying it, you’re buying it for reasons other than this and not just for this mission. Hopefully it’s a proof of concept and a playable demo which leads onto bigger and better things for Battlefront 2.

    Stop being salty about this announcement. Anyone would think you were just a troll who couldn’t afford a PSVR…..

    @canonb8 of course he’s a troll. He can’t even afford PS+ – either that or he’s not a member of the Playstation family at all.

I already have Star Wars Battlefront so I am really looking forward to this new free content. I can’t wait to experience this and I hope it will expand to all of the flight modes in Star Wars Battlefront.
