ILMxLAB and Lucasfilm have announced a new VR experience, Star Wars: Droid Repair Bay — Astro-Mechanic for the Resistance, in which participants must repair BB-8 and other astromechs.

Players take on the role of an astromech technician aboard General Leia’s ship as they interact with and repair BB-8 and his droid friends in the official VR experience connected to Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The experience will see the debut of brand new astromechs, complete with their own unique personalities and original designs.

Powered by Nissan, the VR experience is coming soon to select dealerships in the US, Mexico, and Canada, and is developed for HTC Vive and Samsung Gear.
