Despite officially being released as an HTC Vive (and Gear VR for mobile) exclusive it has been confirmed that ILMxLAB’s Star Wars: Droid Repair Bay does in fact also work with Windows Mixed Reality VR HMDs via SteamVR! Star Wars: Droid Repair Bay is a VR mini-game similar to The Lab’s Aperture Robot Repair. It’s set aboard Leia’s ship and you have to repair BB-8 and other ball droids. Although it’s only around 15 minutes long it is completely free and can be downloaded HERE. If you don’t have a VR system and you’re in the USA you can also try it out at Nissan dealerships. You can watch a trailer for Star Wars: Droid Repair Bay above and read more about it in the following description from Steam:

ABOUT THIS GAME

The Resistance Needs You!

Star Wars™: Droid Repair Bay – Astro-Mechanic for the Resistance will be available for free download starting December 6 for the HTC Vive on Steam and Viveport and Samsung Gear on the Oculus store.
In Star Wars: Droid Repair Bay, Poe Dameron’s sidekick needs your help. Repair BB-8 and his astromech droid friends, each with their own unique personalities, so they can roll back into the fight against the First Order. Aboard General Leia’s ship in the depths of space, you’ll need to work quickly before battle breaks loose just outside the droid repair bay.

Star Wars: Droid Repair Bay, created by ILMxLAB, is the official virtual reality story connected to Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Trials On Tatooine

About This Game

Take Your First Step into a Larger World of Star Wars

The creative minds of Lucasfilm’s ILMxLAB present a virtual reality experiment set in a galaxy far, far away…Star Wars: Trials on Tatooine. For the first time ever, wield a lightsaber as you leap into action in the most immersive Star Wars virtual reality experience ever. Be transported to the desert world of Tatooine, repair the iconic Millennium Falcon, and defend the plucky droid hero R2-D2 from incoming stormtroopers in this captivating experience set after the events of Return of the Jedi.

Usage Notes

Trials on Tatooine uses a single controller. We support both 5.1 surround and headphone audio, pick the setting with the icon on the intro screen for your configuration.
Trials on Tatooine approaches photo-realistic quality and requires a powerful computer. The quality setting on the left of the introduction screen should default to the correct setting for your system. If you drop frames try setting the quality knob one lower. In general, a minimum spec computer will run on the lowest setting while a fast computer with an Nvidia Titan X GPU will run on the highest setting. Trials on Tatooine also supports SLI and will automatically render on two GPU’s if available.

 

 

I haven’t played Star Wars: Droid Repair Bay yet but I have played Trials On Tatooine and despite being very short it is quite fun. It’s awesome being actually inside Star Wars and briefly wielding a lightsaber! Have you played either game yet and if so then what did you think of them?
