Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series coming to PS VR this summer

What could be more memorable than fighting Darth Vader in VR?

Happy May the 4th everyone! We have yet another Star Wars announcement to brighten your day.

Listen to the latest episode of our Star Wars podcast, Talkin' Tauntauns!

Mark S. Miller, Executive Creative Producer at ILMxLAB announced on the PlayStation Blog today that Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series is coming to PlayStation VR (PSVR) this summer. The release will include the complete series of all three episodes and Lightsaber Dojos, which will be available for purchase together for the first time.

Developed by ILMxLAB and Ninja Theory, Vader Immortal is a canonical Star Wars game that up until now has been an Oculus Rift exclusive. The three-part series is a combination of immersive cinematic storytelling with dramatic interactive play that leads players into the heart of Darth Vader’s fortress where they learn how to use a lightsaber, develop a connection with the Force, and discover ancient secrets of the Sith and Jedi. Once you complete the story mode, you can visit three different Lightsaber Dojos to hone your skills with your blade.

“There are so many parts that grab you in the experience, but my favorite is still early in the first episode,” said Miller. “The moment when Darth Vader first approaches you is something that can’t really be explained (but I’ll try). It’s intense when his gaze follows you and he speaks directly to you. I’ve seen some people stand up taller and get in his face, and some shrink a bit or even step back, but his presence is intimidating, and unforgettable.”

There’s no word at this time on the exact release date for Vader Immortal, but Miller has told fans to expect more information in the coming months.

So while you PlayStation 4 users will have to wait a few months to meet Darth Vader in Vader Immortal, you can see his grandson swinging the lightsaber around today. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the conclusion to the sequel trilogy, started streaming on Disney+ today in celebration of May the 4th.
