Star Wars: Trials on Tatooine-Lucasfilm

Released May 2017 3.8★
Commence your Jedi training in this Star Wars™ virtual reality demo experience. Repair the Millennium Falcon, defend it from attack by Imperial Stormtroopers, and wield a Lightsaber™.

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.

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.

Short and Awesome, don’t listen to this guy about being sick, he must have eaten something bad before playing…

Zwar sehr kurz, aber da es kostenlos ist, auf jeden fall empfehlenswert!
Grafik ist sehr schön und das Spiel zeigt, was alles in VR möglich ist und wieviel Spaß das machen kann. Droid Repair Bay ist auch empfehlenswert an dieser Stelle.
Es wird dringend Zeit für ein wirklich gut programmiertes, langes Star Wars VR-Game mit einer guten Story und ausgereifter Spielmechanik.
Das würde bestimmt auch viele Leute überzeugen, sich ein VR-Headset zu kaufen, denn bei dem wenigen wirklich guten Content den es gibt, kann ich die leute verstehen, die vor dem hohen Preis für ein HMD und einen leistungsfähigen PC zurück schrecken.
Also bitte, bringt endlich ein richtiges echtes und gutes Star Wars VR-Spiel!!

Dommage qu’il soit uniquement en anglais, par contre il y a quelques surprise qui font leurs effets!
En espérant que Disney fasse un jeu complet en VR pour Star Wars, il y a énormément de potentiel et vu l’expérience de LucasArt, on attend beaucoup d’eux surtout dans le domaine de la VR.

The Millennium Falcon Almost Landed On Me And I Used A Lightsaber To Defend Against Attacking Stormtroopers. Voice Acting Brilliant / Graphics Fantastic I Want To Go Again,…. Again,…. Again ,….

Very bad is only a 2 minutes game/demo but is the best VR experience I’ve played. For free, is a mandatory download.

Muy mal que sea solo un juego/demo de 2 minutos, pero es la mejor experiencia de RV que he jugado. Gratis, es una descarga obligatoria.

Just Amazing mind blowing i hope this becomes a real game in VR id definatly buy it as a star wars fan. This just blew me away very immersive its a pity it was not longer

Ganz nett, aber im kleinsten HTC Vive Spielbereich passen die interaktiven Objekte nicht in den Spielbereich und sind damit unereichbar… Auch im Stehbereich geht nix, logisch aber das Spiel sollte dann entsprechend eine Meldung ausgeben, dass der Spielbereich nicht unterstützt wird.

Ca sera cool quand on aura un vrai jeu starwars.
En attendant, c est une experience à faire et c est gratuit. La première moitié n est pas des plus passionnantes par contre…

Awesome peek into Star Wars VR! Felt like I was literally standing next to the Millennium Falcon and could touch R2-D2. Of course wielding a light saber was fun as well. Can’t wait to see when Lucasfilm adds more.

The concept, idea and experience of a game like this – putting you in the world of Star Wars in the VR would bring all generations of Fans from the Original, the rebirth of Menace – and those of today’s last jedi era’s flooding to a great game.

It maybe short (5mins) – but really great at showing what we can expect in the future of VR gaming.

Another immersive experience I really liked. The most enjoyable part is when you get attacked by Imperial Stormtroopers, and wield a Lightsaber. Whole family had the most problems repairing the Millennium Falcon (handle, pushing buttons was easier). But GFX are stunning. I recommend this demo and hope there will be a game release with alot of light saber and space ship action.

It’s 5 stars of awesome, 4 stars because it’s so short. It’s a demo that makes you want MORE!!

If this wasn’t Star Wars it’d probably be disappointing… But it IS Star Wars in VR and you get to deflect blaster shots with a lightsaber! The long loading time, often unskippable intro text roll (I only got the skip to work once) and the tiny game length doesn’t really matter. It’s STAR WARS in VR and it’s free. You know you want it. When they finally do a full game like this minds will be blown.

I love Star Wars I’d like more content for the HTC Vive this experience was good but the Vive is too blurry to see the storm troopers in the distance to really blow me away. Still really enjoyed it but I wouldn’t put any friends on it because I wouldn’t wish to pan the HTC’s poor resolution.

Lightsaber!!! Totally worth it. How long before mutli-player lightsaber battles?

Aug 05, 2019
I don’t usually say this about VR games (Especially free ones) but the fact that this is a large company destroys what excuses I would normally accept, Graphics are terrible. Clean these up, it isn’t hard. Otherwise the only problem I had was the left handedness of my lightsaber; though I didn’t find a way to change my dominint hand.
Please fix, uninterested in buying because of that.

Les plus :
– Très beau graphiquement
– Le renvoi de laser est très bien fait
– Gratuit
Les moins :
– Trop trop court (et long à la fois), la session contre les stormtroopers est trop longue à arriver, et une fois engage on n’a pas le temps de profité.
– En anglais

if this is a preview or proof of concept then its great for future games but this isnt a “game” really just a pre-scripted interaction. if you are a star wars fan download it for the graphics,really nice. if you are expecting a playable game well, erm, itsnot. not really worth a second go. BUT, if it was a whole game, that would be different.

The graphics are nice, and the voice acting is spot-on even though it’s not Harrison Ford. However, there are serious problems:

There is no way to swap the active controller to the other hand other than physically. There should be a setting for this.

There are no settings other than on the main menu, where the only setting is graphics quality.

The main menu was outside my play area – only a few inches, fortunately where I could cross the boundary, otherwise it would have been unplayable.

The thing that drops out of the Millenium Falcon was mostly out-of-bounds. The buttons were all out of bounds & I could only reach one, the rest were inside a hard obstacle.

Without teleportation, the play area positioning problems can’t be overcome.

Deflected shots should be more aimable – the lightsaber should work like a cylindrical mirror or a baseball bat, and not just reflect randomly.

Pas mal car gratuit , tres tres court (à peine quelques minutes)

Sep 09, 2019
I like the concept and I hope that they do a bot more with this. The movement seems failrly glitchy. When turning or looking around it is not fluid like my other games. Also they could keep the AI running a bit longer and make it a simple swarm and defend dype game easily. It’s almost there – not 100% though

Unfortunately I’m a bit disappointed in this. Not a bad experience, but I was hoping for something more engaging being that this is Star Wars. Overall, it felt more like a passive experience even though there was some interaction. Here are some minor suggestions that might seem subtle that I would expect ILM to get the details right.

– Long waiting for text to scroll by without a way to skip it (especially for second viewing)
– Aliasing on text as it scrolls into distance so I can’t read it
– No feedback of being hurt when I’m shot by stormtroopers.
– No or little shadows in scene. Might be due to my GTX 970. I would hope for lesser detailed models for a lower graphics card instead of skipping shadows.

Disappointing! Being in VR standing under the Falcon was very cool…..that’s pretty much where the excitement ends. I had much higher expectations for this “Experience” from Lucas Films. It delivered with eye candy but there was really very little to do or places to move. It was over just as soon as it started and I don’t really understand all the Fantastick reviews. I think they may be reflecting on what they hope it will be or could have been, cuz I just didn’t get it?! For game mechanics, the Star Wars franchise need to set the bar MUCH higher.
