PlayStation VR has a lot planned but one that should appeal to the kid in us all is an X-Wing VR expansion to Star Wars Battlefront. EA has just revealed that this expansion will tie into the upcoming Star Wars spinoff film, Rogue One. Here was the original trailer release, check it out.

In a post on EA’s blog, the expansion’s developer, Criterion, announced that it was renaming the project because of the connection to Rogue One. The game will now be called (get ready for a doozy) Star Wars Battlefront Rogue One: X-Wing VR Mission.

Producer James Svensson explained that renaming the game was an easy choice because of its setting. He stated,

Rogue One is in the same time period the base game covers, so to be relevant in the ever-evolving Star Wars universe we’ve since been able to work with Lucasfilm to make the connection here.”

He also goes on to talk about how players will get to take on a Star Destroyer from the cockpit of an X-Wing.

“[Star Destroyers] are huge and powerful with a belly full of TIE fighters. Being in a fight with a Star Destroyer is not a situation an X-wing pilot wants to find themselves in, but that’s where the player ends up.”

Star Wars Battlefront Rogue One: X-Wing VR Mission is currently planned for a holiday launch. It’ll be free to all Battlefront owners, but you’ll need a PS VR to play it.
