Following Friday morning’s “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” presentation, yesterday afternoon’s Star Wars Celebration convention centered around “Vader Immortal,” a new three-part episodic VR game series.
A continuation of events set up in the VR experience “Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire,” the new series takes place on the lava planet Mustafar between ‘Revenge of the Sith’ and ‘A New Hope’ and is said to blend “immersive cinematic storytelling and dramatic interactive play”.
In the game, the user will go inside Vader’s fortress (as seen in “Rogue One”). David S. Goyer, who penned ‘Secrets’, returns for this as both writer and executive producer.
Award-winning developer Ninja Theory and Epic Games are also helping with development of the title which will arrive on Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift S sometime this year
