Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series coming to Oculus VR headset
ILMxLAB, Lucasfilm’s immersive entertainment division, officially unveiled the title of their highly anticipated virtual reality project, Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series, at Oculus Connect 5 in San Jose, CA. The first episode of the 3-part series is set to launch in 2019 on the newly announced Oculus Quest.
“As a lifelong Star Wars fan, working with ILMxLAB on an untold Vader story is a dream come true. The experience is designed to be ‘immersive first,’ meaning that from its inception, this 3-part series has been conceived and executed specifically for the VR medium,” said David S. Goyer, Writer and Executive Producer. “We’re breaking new ground with this project that places you, the user, at the center of the story.”
The series takes place between Star Wars – Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars – Episode IV: A New Hope, and is connected to ILMxLAB and The VOID’s location-based hyper-reality experience Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire.
Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series will launch on the Oculus Quest in 2019.
