The Darth Vader Immortal VR game was first announced back in 2016 with David S. Goyer attached. No release date has been announced as of yet. The Oculus Quest becomes available this spring priced at $399 and is “the world’s first all-in-one gaming system built for virtual reality.”
Watch the first teaser trailer above.
The brand new story-based project centers around a particularly iconic Star Wars character: Darth Vader. Just like VR is a new frontier, so sounds this venture. “When we looked at all the characters, places, and worlds in the Star Wars universe available to us, we asked ourselves, ‘What haven’t we seen before? Who are we curious about?” Goyer said, “Darth Vader is the perfect ambassador to usher us into the Star Wars VR universe.”
ILMxLAB is also developing VR games for an untitled Marvel game and Wreck It Ralph.
