First Gameplay Trailer for Star Wars: Vader Immortal is Here
Lucasfilm’s ILMxLAB showed off a new trailer for Star Wars: Vader Immortal at Star Wars Celebration, and it is the first gameplay and story for the long-awaited VR experience that the company is developing with Oculus.
Officially named Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series — Episode I, the VR title is the first of three episodes showing a new story written by David S. Goyer and it is based on the Vader. Players will take on the role of a smuggler picked out of hyperspace near Mustafar, where they come in battle with the Dark Lord of the Sith himself. And while the details of that fight aren’t quite clear yet, it seems that players will be able to use a lightsaber, and possibly even duel with the Vader along the way.
Vader Immortal — Episode I is set to release later in the year on both the upcoming Oculus Quest headset as well as the Oculus Rift line of devices. No exact price or release date has yet been announced.
