Lead an all-out assault on Vader’s castle in the dramatic conclusion to ILMxLAB’s three-part series.
ILMxLAB, developer behind Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire and the Vader Immortal series, today confirmed that Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series – Episode III will be arriving on Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift/Rift headsets on November 21st, 2019, marking the third and final entry in the critically-acclaimed Vader Immortal series.
Here’s a brief recap of where we left off: After falling into the clutches of Darth Vader and being taught the ways of the Force in order to help him access an ancient weapon that could devastate the galaxy, our hero has now teamed up with the natives of Mustafar to turn the tables on the menacing Sith Lord and take back the mysterious artifact.
Using the lightsaber skills and Force-wielding abilities you’ve accumulated over the course of the first two episodes, as well as an army of ancient droids left behind by your legendary ancestor, Episode III will have you launching an all-out assault on Vader’s Mustafarean castle. Using your freshly-harnessed force abilities and an ancient lightsaber, you’ll make your way to the top of Vader’s massive facility, battling waves of stormtroopers and one pissed-off Imperial Officer before going toe-to-toe with Vader himself in one final duel.
“From the very beginning, Vader Immortal was conceived of as one overarching story where you were the lead character,” said director Ben Snow in an official release. “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.”
“Vader Immortal lets us do things we, as fans, have always dreamed of,” added producer Alyssa Finley. “Not only can you fight with a lightsaber, now you can use the Force to grab a blaster and takedown stormtroopers, all before confronting Darth Vader face to face. There’s nothing like being at the center of a proper Star Wars adventure.”
Along with our lightsaber and Force abilities, you’ll also have access to a slew of new weaponry, including a standard-issue Imperial Blaster as well as explosive Thermal Detonators. Hopefully, we’ll be able to combine these weapons with our Force abilities, similar to how you can throw and retract lightsabers in Episode II. I’d certainly relish the opportunity to disarm Stormtroopers from a distance or catch and return live Thermal Detonators in midair.
Based on the information provided in the release, it sounds as though this latest episode will be the most action-packed one yet. Concept images provided by ILMxLAB show large-scale battles across large, sprawling environments.
Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series – Episode III arrives on the Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift/Rift S November 21st, 2019. No word yet on an official price, though considering both Episodes I & II were priced at $9.99, it’s safe to say Episode III will more-than-likely cost the same.
