Sony took to GDC 2016 with a number of announcements, one of which was that Star Wars Battlefront will be available as a "cinematic gaming experience" on the PlayStation VR. Details on Battlefront's move to virtual reality have been scarce, but a recent interview with Sony has shed light on the project.
According to John Koller, the vice president of marketing at Sony Interactive Entertainment – in an interview with Fortune (via WCCF), Battlefront in VR will be an experience that defines what it 'means' to play a virtual reality game.
“We are working with EA, DICE, Lucasfilm, and Disney to try and make that experience something so special and so intrinsic to what’s in many people’s DNA, which is, ‘How can I be in that world of Star Wars?’ Battlefront is going to be one of those games that will really show gamers what it means to be in the world of VR. It’s very special. And just by the nature of it being designed as a VR experience, it’s going to be very different than the PlayStation 4 game.”
While Battlefront has released across various platforms, when it comes to VR the game will be exclusive to the Sony headset.
