If you own a PlayStation VR headset and Star Wars Battlefront, stop what you're doing right now and go download the free Star Wars Rogue One X-Wing VR Mission.

The free standalone mission serves as a tie-in for the upcoming Rogue One film and has you piloting an X-Wing starship escorting a Rebel fleet, which of course descends into a dog fight with Tie Fighters. It lasts for around 20 minutes, but unlike the free Call of Duty Jackal Assault mission which didn't require Infinite Warfare to work, you need to own Battlefront to access the X-Wing VR Mission.

There are plenty of memorable fan-pleasing moments, from entering lightspeed to gasping in awe at the scale of a giant Star Destroyer looming above you. As a showcase of how VR can transform game experiences on console, this is about as good as it gets right now.

How is this related to racing games, you may ask? It was developed by none other than Criterion Games, the talented team behind the Burnout series and Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. Plus we're serious Star Wars fans at VVV, so we don't really need an excuse.
