Today ILMxLAB announced that Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series – Episode III, the conclusion to the acclaimed virtual reality adventure, will be released on November 21st for the Oculus Quest and Rift family of headsets.
“From the very beginning, Vader Immortal was conceived of as one overarching story where you were the lead character,” said director Ben Snow. “From learning the Force from Darth Vader, to uncovering the ancient secrets of Mustafar, everything has been leading up to the culmination of the series. We can’t wait for fans to discover firsthand how their story ends.”
In the first two installments of the series, audiences learned how to use a lightsaber, were taught the ways of the Force by Darth Vader, and battled thrilling new Star Wars creatures while uncovering the secrets of Mustafar.
Episode III will allow you to lead an assault into Vader’s castle with the Force and an ancient lightsaber by your side. As you make your way through his fortress, you will confront stormtroopers, a vengeful Imperial officer, and Lord Vader himself in a heart-stopping lightsaber battle with the fate of Mustafar hanging in the balance.
In addition to a lightsaber and the Force, Episode III will also feature classic Star Wars weaponry, allowing you to wield an Imperial blaster and thermal detonators in battle.
“Vader Immortal lets us do things we, as fans, have always dreamed of,” said producer Alyssa Finley. “Not only can you fight with a lightsaber, now you can use the Force to grab a blaster and take down stormtroopers, all before confronting Darth Vader face to face. There’s nothing like being at the center of a proper Star Wars adventure.”
Created in close collaboration with the Lucasfilm Story Group, Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series is written by David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, Blade) and directed by Ben Snow (Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire). It features Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids, Big Mouth) as ZO-E3, and fan favorite Scott Lawrence as Darth Vader.
A canonical part of the Star Wars galaxy, Vader Immortal is connected to the events of Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire — also produced by ILMxLAB — and is set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.
The first two episodes are currently available for purchase on the Oculus Store.
