Vader Immortal Star Wars VR Series coming to Rift and Quest

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

Vader Immortal, the VR Star Wars series that Oculus and ILMxLAB are putting together with the help of Hellblade dev Ninja Theory, got a new trailer yesterday that teases its story and shows us our first proper glimpse of lightsaber combat. Vader Immortal isn't a VR movie that you passively watch.

ILMxLAB also announced that Maya Rudolph will be joining the cast of Vader Immortal, playing the main character's droid co-pilot named ZOE3, who'll accompany you along the way.

"Set between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series is an original narrative adventure that lets audiences step into the role of a smuggler operating near Mustafar, the volcanic world that Darth Vader calls home".

In Vader Immortal players will face off against Darth Vader and others as they explore his dark and mysterious fortress. "“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".

The storyline of Vader Immortal - Episode I runs about 45-60 minutes long, its creators said, depending on how a given audience member decides to tackle its many challenges. "You're the lead character", said director Ben Snow.

Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series - Episode I is scheduled for release this spring. "As a fan, I've always wanted to feel what it's like to be close to Darth Vader". The fact that the Oculus Quest rig is entirely untethered is key here.

Founded by Lucasfilm in 2015, ILMxLAB has made a name for itself by creating immersive and high-quality virtual reality experiences like Star Wars: Droid Repair Bay and Trials on Tatooine. There, you'll find a lightsaber and will have to use it to fight for your freedom. The game will see a release on all Oculus platforms, including the Rift, the all-in-one Quest, and the high resolution Rift S.
