Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Open Beta Deadline Extended
Fresh off the Star Wars: Battlefront 2 beta, the big thing on players' minds was the game's usage of loot boxes . Players will get a chance to see how quickly DICE and EA can respond to player feedback next month.
We don't know how much Secrets of the Empire will cost yet or exactly when in the holidays it will open, but it will be available at two brand-new Void Experience Centers: one at Downtown Disney at Disneyland Resort and Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort.
But if the thought of having to wait a whole two years to see it has you staring mournfully at a double sunset, there's good news Thursday from the world of virtual reality.

The experience will allow up to four players to go undercover as Stormtroopers and walk around freely on a stage that combines real walls and other physical objects with VR storytelling. Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire will send teams of four, under the orders of the budding rebellion, to the lava planet Mustafar.
The Void, if you're unfamiliar, is a full-body virtual reality experience that takes VR immersion to the next level with well-crafted sets that reflect the virtual spaces you explore in various experiences. You're accompanied by the droid K-2S0, made popular in the Star Wars anthology film Rogue One, and must navigate enemy territory in a Stormtrooper disguise. You'll grab your blaster, solve puzzles, and fight giant lava monsters in an effort to fulfill the rebellion's orders. It's location-based entertainment, that means you visit one of our locations, and you walk into real-time virtual reality that combines interactive sets, real-time effects and fantastic technology.
