Star Wars ‘Vader Immortal’ Trilogy Announced for Oculus Quest

The episodes will take viewers inside Vader’s fiery lava-ridden fortress

Following the standalone VR headset's reveal and its launch window of 2019 being announced, Industrial Light and Magic revealed one of the new games coming to the platform and it involves one of the biggest fictional properties on the planet - Star Wars.

Darth Vader: we know him as the galaxys most infamous villain whose mere breathing can spread terror across an entire universe. It's developed by Lucasfilm's in-house development studio, ILMxLAB, known for their work on Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire and Trials on Tatooine VR experiences. Viewers will be able to step into the dark world of Darth Vader, as the 3-part series explores the gap between Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope.

This should be particularly exciting for Star Wars mega fans, as this corner of Darth Vader's character has gone largely unexplored in the canon Star Wars fiction short of the castle's cameo in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

ILMxLABs has dropped huge news today, giving us a first look at their latest Star Wars VR project. "I think the goal, also, was that we might able to [witness] some other depths to his character that might be hard to experience in other mediums".

The first episode of Vader Immortal is set to hit the Oculus Quest in 2019. The result is something called "Vader Immortal", a new trilogy set in the Star Wars universe, entirely running on the Oculus Quest.

David S. Goyer's geek culture credentials are a who's-who list of comic book legends going back over 20 years, covering Spider-Man, Blade, Batman, Constantine (aka Hellraiser), and others.

The announcement was made during a keynote address at Facebook's annual VR developer conference, Oculus Connect.
