There’s no doubt about it: virtual reality is going to open up a lot of new and old gaming fantasies for the medium. One unavoidable fantasy? Star Wars.
Here we have a fan made trailer for a proposed Star Wars VR title running in Unreal Engine 4 and built for Oculus. I am nerding out so hard for it, even if the Hoth looks pretty bad.
Everything else? Man, it looks really awesome, complete with the “Enlist Today” poster slapped onto the dash of the X-Wing during the Death Star raid.
It’s still nothing but fantasy, I’m afraid. The video even includes this boiler plate stuff in its description:

Well, at least Star Wars Battlefront is coming soon. That game looks wonderful, and maybe it’ll gain Morpheus and Oculus support down the line. Look, it’s perfect for it.
