With the Star Wars world buzzing with the release of the finally titled Episode IX, which is officially called Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker, we bring some news that’s unrelated to the upcoming film (for the most part anyway).
Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series, a new virtual reality video game that has you in the employ of Vader himself, sent on a special mission for the Dark Lord of the Sith. An official synopsis follows below.
“Set between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series is an original narrative adventure that lets audiences step into the role of a smuggler operating near Mustafar, the volcanic world that Darth Vader calls home. In typical Star Wars fashion, they’ll soon find themselves in the middle of a grand adventure as they are unexpectedly pulled out of hyperspace — and eventually come face to face with the Sith Lord himself.”
This sounds incredibly fun, especially with it being a VR game, you’ll be right in the thick of it all, face to face with Darth Vader. All I know is, you don’t wanna fail him, we’ve all seen what happened to Admiral Ozzel.
Director Ben Snow:
“Vader Immortal lets you step inside a Star Wars story, so you’re not just observing what’s happening. You’re the lead character. As a fan, I’ve always wanted to feel what it’s like to be close to Darth Vader. So to have him walk right up in VR — not only with his mechanical breathing, but talking to and addressing you directly — is something that I think is going to be meaningful for a lot of fans.”
