It’s just about a month until the world goes Star Wars crazy again and, sure enough, there’s going to be at least one new VR experience to look out for.
Star Wars: Droid Repair Bay is coming to Nissan dealerships in promotion of the next film in the series, The Last Jedi. Automotive News reports that this experience will be a 10-minute piece that is connected to the film (though we doubt you’ll see any major plot revelations in a tie-in app for a car). It’ll be running on the HTC Vive in some stores, and Gear VR in others.
That’s about all we know for now; it’s not clear if the app is interactive though we’d certainly hope it is. No word on if it could release on Steam or Oculus Home, either.
There’s also a Star Wars-themed AR app in the works that overlays information about Nissan cars when you hold your phone in front of them. Good to see VR and AR being used for the greater good, right?
In all seriousness, there is one other Star Wars VR experience we can’t wait to try out this holiday season from The Void. We’re also eagerly anticipating an update on ILMxLAB’s new VR story featuring Darth Vader.
