Today, ILMxLAB and Perp Games have announced a physical disc edition of 'Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series' for PlayStation VR, releasing this Spring.
The award-winning Star Wars virtual reality (VR) experience first made waves when it first launched in three individual episodes for the Oculus Quest and the Oculus Rift.
Today, ILMxLAB and Perp Games have announced a physical disc version of Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series releasing this Spring.
In a statement released yesterday, ILMxLAB's Harvey Whitney announced:
"We are excited to team up with Perp Games for the Special Retail Edition of Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series. It's great to be able to bring our award-winning immersive story about one of the most iconic villains of all time to even more Star Wars fans, with unique and fun extras to enjoy. We are all looking forward to seeing it in stores later this Spring."
When it finally launched last August for PlayStation VR, it was a long time coming. The award-winning Star Wars virtual reality (VR) experience first made waves when it first launched in three individual episodes for the Oculus Quest and the Oculus Rift.
Taking place after the events of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, you step into the shoes of a smuggler traversing the fiery hellscapes of Mustafar. Pick up a saber, learn the force, earn your stripes, and eventually face Darth Vader himself.
Vader Immortal is immensely story-driven, so as a result the game certainly plays more like a VR experience than a fleshed-out Star Wars RPG. Told in three hour-long episodes, it even plays out like a movie. But Vader Immortal wasn't trying to be some kind of immersive virtual reality RPG. At the time of its launch, ILMxLAB Creative Director Mark Miller stated that the company simply wanted to "tell a new and unique story about one of the most infamous villains in the galaxy."
Perp Games and ILMxLAB haven't officially announced when it'll launch, but stay tuned to VRFinal for further updates as soon as they become available.
