New Star Wars VR story invites you to step into Vader's castle

Vader Immortal VR Panel Resurrects the Sith Lord at Star Wars Celebration

Lucasfilm's ILMxLAB showed off a new trailer for Star Wars: Vader Immortal at Star Wars Celebration, giving the first real look at the gameplay and story for the long-awaited VR experience that the company is working on together with Oculus.

Vader Immortal should be a canon branch of the series, which will tell you more about the construction of the castle at Mustafar and about the new secrets of Darth Vader himself. During the Celebration panel Colum Slevin, Head of Media, AR/VR Experiences Group at Oculus, revealed that the series will also be coming to the companys groundbreaking Oculus Rift family of headsets, including the upcoming Rift S.

The three-episode series takes place between Revenge of the Sith and Rogue One in the Star Wars timeline. You're the lead character. Trials on Tatooine was a true blast - no pun intended - but Vader Immortal kicks things up a notch in a number of respects. "So to have him walk right up in VR - not only with his mechanical breathing, but talking to and addressing you directly - is something that I think is going to be meaningful for a lot of fans". "“Maya truly was the first person we thought of, right from the very beginning, and her contributions and sense of humor have guided ZOE3 every step of the way".

“Oculus Quest unlocks new ways to create. This coincides with the planned release of the Oculus Quest, which will be one of the main platforms that Vader Immortal is set to release on-the other being the Oculus Rift.

With the Star Wars world buzzing with the release of the finally titled Episode IX, which is officially called Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker, we bring some news that's unrelated to the upcoming film (for the most part anyway).

The creators have gone out of their way to emphasize that this isn't a "game", but you will get to fend off blaster fire with a lightsaber and fight a droid, so there's obviously some level of interaction.
