Watch the Star Wars: Trials on Tatooine VR trailer in full

Are you Star Wars’d out yet? Nope, neither are we, especially with the launch of this immense looking trailer for the hotly-anticipated new virtual reality experience.

Following leaked screenshots over the weekend, the official release of the Star Wars: Trials on Tatooine preview has arrived at GDC 2016 (via RoadToVR).

The ‘Cinematic Virtual Reality Experiment’ has been exclusively designed for the HTC Vive headset by Industrial Magic and Light and Skywalker Sound (together known as the ILMxLab).

The trailer appears to show a Vive user pushing the throttle on the Millennium Falcon before cutting to a battle involving TIE Fighters, an Imperial Shuttle as R2D2, as well as Stormtroopers firing at whomever is behind the headset.

At its climax, the viewer appears to be handed a lightsaber by Artoo and begins defend against the incoming gunfire, again, presumably aided by the HTC Vive’s motion controllers.

The trailer is only 48 seconds long and there’s no word yet on when the experience will actually be released for HTC Vive testers and buyers.

The experiment comes months after we got our first taste of virtual reality Star Wars in the form of the Jakku Spy experiment for Google Cardboard headsets.

However, this looks to be far more advanced with user control and interactivity way beyond moving your head around the 360-degree environment.

Pretty soon it seems VR fans will literally feel as if the force is with them.
