ILMxLAB, the studio behind Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series, has announced its next VR adventure in Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy's Edge. More details were given on StarWars.com, including that this new experience will arrive later in 2020, is built in collaboration with Oculus Studios, and connects to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. The official logo and concept art by Chris Voy were revealed, and can be seen below; Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy's Edge takes place between The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker and is set on the outskirts of Batuu's Black Spire Outpost of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. It will tell an original story and features both new and iconic Star Wars characters and "multiple style of gameplay and difficulty settings to accommodate a wide variety of players."

Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series, which is headed to PSVR this summer, was released last year and allowed you to come face-to-face with Darth Vader and use a combination of a lightsaber and force powers to make it through a new Star Wars Story.
