Strap in for an outer-space joyride aboard your trusty X-wing fighter in this preview peek at Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission, an exclusive PS4 virtual reallity add-on that will be free to all Star Wars Battlefront owners. EA and Dice Studios delivered this thrilling first look at E3 2016 this week in Los Angeles, and we can already sense an addictive disturbance in the Force as we agonize over the wait until its release.


Here's the official Sony synopsis:

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!

Have a look at this tempting reveal trailer and tell us if you'll be steering your X-wing starfighter into battle when Sony's new Playstation VR headset comes out later this year on Oct. 13, 2016.
