The game, which is developed by Oculus and ILMxLAB (with some help from Ninja Theory [DmC: Devil May Cry, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice], who are now part of the Xbox Game Studios), was also mentioned during Star Wars Celebration in Chicago.
In Star Wars: Vader Immortal, we take up the role of a smuggler who’s working on Mustafar, Vader’s home planet. He has a space ship, called Windfall. At the beginning of the first episode (as there will be three total – they will be set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope), you get captured by Vader, and you get to discover his base with the help of your droid called ZOE3.
The episode will take about 45 to 60 minutes to complete, and you’ll grab a lightsaber at some point to defeat the stormtroopers. You’ll face Vader as well, who will give you a currently unknown task as well. Star Wars: Vader Immortal doesn’t seem like a game… it feels more like an interactive VR film, complete with a lightsaber dojo to improve your skills.
The first episode of Star Wars: Vader Immortal should be out by the end of Spring on Oculus Rift, Oculus Rift S, and Oculus Quest.
