Star Wars: A New Hope Trench Run Recreated for Oculus Rift

Star Wars A New Hope Trench Run Recreated for Oculus Rift

It was only a matter of time before someone gave us something awesome like this. Developer Boone Calhoun has recreated the trench run sequence from Star Wars: A New Hope using the Oculus Rift headset.

EGM Now brings us the story and the video so you can see for yourself.

As you can see from the video below, users can look around the cockpit of the X-Wing–complete with R2-D2 in the back. The demo uses an Xbox 360 controller for input.

You can check it out below.

Check it out and let us know what you think!
