Vader Immortal is a three-part VR series set within the Star Wars universe. Previously, Vader Immortal had been promoted as an Oculus Quest exclusive. Although the game's developers weren't too keen on offering fans any story details beyond what was revealed in the trailer, Lucasfilm executive Matt Martin did let slip that, thanks to corporate synergy, there are a few clues were to be found if you happen to like comic books and Star Wars (a tiny cross-section, we know).

After first debuting at Star Wars Celebration in London, a couple of years ago, the development team at ILMxLAB brought a new trailer for Vader Immortal to Star Wars Celebration 2019 and it is even more intense than the first!

Now that Darth Vader has found the player character, he's "in reach of enormous power", and the character must escape his fortress on Mustafar.

"Much in the way Alan Tudyk did with K-2SO, we needed somebody for this role that could create a unique character using their improvisation and performance skills", said David Goyer. "“Maya truly was the first person we thought of, right from the very beginning, and her contributions and sense of humor have guided ZOE3 every step of the way". "As a fan, I've always wanted to feel what it's like to be close to Darth Vader". The main storyline of Vader Immortal - Episode I is said to take between 45 minutes to an hour to play through, but the title will also include a standalone "Lightsaber Dojo" mode for more open-ended gameplay. The fact that the Oculus Quest rig is entirely untethered is key here. Youll see what I mean the moment you fire up a lightsaber and wield it in your hands.”.

ILMxLab announced Vader Immortal alongside the Oculus Quest back in September, but now the game will be coming to the Rift as well.

Scott Lawrence, who has voiced Darth Vader in the classic video games like Star Wars: Rebel Assault II and Star Wars: Dark Forces (just to name a couple), will be reprising the role for Vader Immortal.
