If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to fight as a Rebel pilot in the Star Wars universe, now you have a chance, reveals Comicbook.com. Lucasfilm, along with ILMxLAB, joined forces to produce this short, but intense video experience that puts you in the cockpit during a space battle. It’s got it all, light speed, tie fighters, Mon Mothma, and an absolutely terror-inducing glimpse at the Death Star. It’s actually very intense and gives you a feel on just how dark this new entry in our beloved saga might actually be. Read the official description and then jump in and check out for yourself below!
“Conflict, above all else, rules the galaxy. As an everyday X-wing pilot flying for the Rebellion, be immediately immersed in the vastness of space with only your R2 unit and wingman by your side. What starts as a routine mission for Mon Mothma takes a sharp turn as you stumble upon unexpected Imperial presence – and something they will do anything to keep hidden.”
