Star Wars: Trials on Tatooine brings free VR lightsaber battles to Steam today

July the eighteenth be with you

This weekend was host to all things Star Wars thanks to Star Wars Celebration Europe. Movies? Sure, they’re coming—but that’s not really our focus here. We’re here to talk about video games. Specifically, Trials on Tatooine.

First debuted at GDC back in March, Trials on Tatooine is a brief Star Wars experience that pretty much does exactly what you’d expect, giving you a lightsaber to swing around. Then a few Stormtroopers show up, all hell (or some hell) breaks loose, and you spend a while trying to deflect lasers back at the baddies.

I didn’t know what would come of it—it’s more an ultra-slick demo than a full-fledged game. But Lucasfilm apparently has decided it’s polished enough to play in the comfort of your own home, which is great news. You can find it on Steam today, and it’s free (as long as you have a Vive, of course).

There’s more out of Star Wars Celebration Europe. The Old Republic is getting yet another expansion, Visceral’s game still exists, and Battlefront’s getting a Death Star expansion with honest-to-god space battles. Check out the teaser below:

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
