In addition to this new trailer for Vader Immortal: Episode II, StarWars.com has also posted an article covering the surprise release of this latest Star Wars VR experience from ILMxLAB.
Perfect your lightsaber skills against terrifying new enemies, master the Force, and discover the truth of an ancient mystery beneath the fiery surface of Mustafar as you continue your journey into the heart of Darth Vader’s fortress. From ILMxLAB, Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series – Episode II is available NOW for Oculus Quest and Rift headsets.
Here’s the press release from our friends at ILMxLAB: –
Supervisor, Creative Development and Experience Design Jose Perez III and Senior Producer Alyssa Finley announced the highly-anticipated release during the keynote presentation at Oculus Connect 6, Oculus’ sixth annual developer conference.
“At its core, Vader Immortal allows audiences to explore one central question: what would it be like for you to be a hero in a Star Wars adventure, and learn firsthand about Darth Vader’s mysterious plans?” said Finely during the keynote. “We can’t wait for audiences to continue their journey with Episode II.”
ILMxLAB also debuted the new trailer for the second episode, which is available here.
Vader Immortal is a three-part canonical Star Wars adventure that allows audiences to step into the role of a Force-sensitive smuggler recruited by Darth Vader himself. In Episode I, they learned how to use a lightsaber and explored the depths of Lord Vader’s castle.
In Episode II, audiences will learn the ways of the Force from the Sith Lord, and battle thrilling new Star Wars creatures while uncovering the secrets of Mustafar. They will also have the opportunity to hone their skills in Lightsaber Dojo II — a standalone training mode that combines lightsaber combat and Force powers for the first time in virtual reality.
“In Dojo II, you will be able to use the Force to stun, pick up, and fling your opponents across the arena,” said Perez. “You can even use the Force to throw your lightsaber.”
