We’ve got a cool first look photo for you (above) of the third episode of the virtual reality adventure game, Vader Immortal. The game series launched in May this year, and the second episode was secretly released in September. ILMxLAB has now announced the concluding chapter with Vader Immortal: Episode III, which can be played on Oculus Quest and Rift headsets.
The game’s director, Ben Snow, released the following official statement:
“From the very beginning, Vader Immortal was conceived of as one overarching story where you were the lead character. From learning the Force from Darth Vader, to uncovering the ancient secrets of Mustafar, everything has been leading up to the culmination of the series. We can’t wait for fans to discover firsthand how their story ends.”
/Film also offered the following additional info:
Players control a Force-sensitive smuggler recruited by Darth Vader to help him with a mysterious task. As the story has unfolded, Darth Vader’s nefarious plan has been revealed, and it’s up to you to stop him. The third episode of the series will have you leading an assault on Darth Vader’s fortress on Mustafar with an ancient lightsaber by your side and the power of the Force flowing through you. And it’s all leading up to a face-off with Darth Vader himself.
In addition to what you’ve already learned from the first two episodes, this third installment will let you use an Imperial blaster and thermal detonators. As far as ground combat goes, that’s pretty much everything a Star Wars fan would want to do. It’s just a shame that we can’t fly a ship in virtual reality yet, but maybe that will come sometime down the road.
That sounds pretty amazing. I bet it would be so much fun to watch these adventures play out in VR. Have you been playing Vader Immortal? Are you stoked for Episode III?
Vader Immortal: Episode III becomes available on November 21.
