Darth Vader lives again with a brand new virtual reality experience from the creators at ILMxLAB titled, Vader Immortal. Set after the events of ILMxLAB’s recent VR experience, Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire, the series will return to the volcanic wasteland of Mustafar.
Users will get to explore the dark fortress of Lord Vader, first seen in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The three part Darth Vader series will debut for the Oculus Quest next year, bringing the cutting edge experience directly to the comfort of your own home and will also be an industry first. This reveal comes shortly after the announcement of a brand new VR experience centered around the new Wreck it Ralph sequel, Ralph Breaks the Internet, which will open in Disney Springs and Downtown Disney later this year.
“We always look for opportunities to explore the Star Wars universe in new ways,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “ILMxLAB is very excited to be working with David S. Goyer on a first-of-its-kind Star Wars experience which allows fans to travel to Darth Vader’s fiery, lava-ridden fortress and wield a lightsaber on his home turf.”
Prepare to embrace the power of the Dark Side and unravel the secrets of the dark lord of the Sith. Vader Immortal is coming to a galaxy near you in 2019.
