Interactive Star Wars Series Titled Vader Immortal Coming To Oculus Quest In Collaboration With Ninja Theory
Oculus has announced a new interactive VR series for their new standalone headset, the Oculus Quest. Taking place in the Star Wars universe, Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Story puts the viewer/player in the role of a Darth Vader subordinate as you witness the tale unfolding around him.
Catch the trailer for Vader Immortal below.
The episodic series is created by ILMxLab, which creates interactive story experiences made with real-time graphics rather than CG or other kinds of pre-recorded video. ILMxLab is also working on an untitled Marvel project in 2019. The VR experience is also being developed in collaboration with Ninja Theory, developers of DmC: Devil May Cry and Hellblade, which is now a Microsoft first-party studio.
Of course, the trailer ends with the tease of a VR lightsaber battle, so hopefully they do what everyone wants. Vader Immortal is scheduled for release in 2019.
