Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series Release Date Announced for PlayStation VR
Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series was shown off for the PlayStation VR during yesterday's State of Play.
During yesterday’s State of Play showcase from PlayStation, we got a look at Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series for PlayStation VR.
Vader Immortal has players Mustafar, the home of Darth Vader’s fortress. As you play the campaign, you’ll get to explore the planet, learn about it’s secrets, and explore Vader’s lair. The game is being developed by Lucasfilm’s ILMxLAB and developer Black Shamrock for PS VR.
The trailer shows off how you fight droids and other enemies, alongside some cutscenes and how force abilities work. Additionally, it shows players the chance to dual-wield lightsabers and use lightning powers.
“Vader Immortal holds a very special place in our hearts at ILMxLAB and we are very excited to be bringing this to PlayStation VR,” said ILMxLAB’s Harvey Whitney on the PlayStation Blog. “This allows even more fans to experience the first Star Wars story designed exclusively for virtual reality.”
Prior to being confirmed for PlayStation VR, Vader Immortal released on the Oculus Store last year. The story was broken up into three episodes which were $9.99 each. It isn’t the only notable Star Wars game we’ve gotten recently. Last November, EA and Respawn released Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Additionally, we’re getting Star Wars Squadrons from EA Motive on October 2.
Vader Immortal wasn’t the only game shown off during State of Play. We got a new look at Crash Bandicoot: It’s About Time, Hitman III, Bugnsnax, and more. Additionally, we got a look at upcoming PlayStation 5 games like Temtem, The Pathless, and Godfall. As we get closer to the holiday season, let’s hope PlayStation does another State of Play with a PS5 release date, price, and launch lineup.
Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series launches on PlayStation VR on August 25. If you missed out on PlayStation’s State of Play, you can watch it down below.
