ILMxLAB, a Lucasfilm company working on Star Wars projects for VR, recently revealed their newest project on their YouTube channel. The official trailer shows us what will be a new “series” of VR stories, focused around the iconic character of Darth Vader. Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series – Episode I is being developed by Oculus Studios, and will take players into a new immersive experience in the Star Wars universe.

The trailer shows Darth Vader capturing players for unknown purposes, and features Vader’s fortress on the planet Mustafar – as seen in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. From this, we can speculate that you will be able to see more of the Sith Lord’s castle, as well as take part in a Vader-centric story in the Star Wars canon. Scheduled for release on the Oculus Quest; a new standalone VR headset; in 2019, Vader Immortal has the potential to be an exciting addition to the lore, while demonstrating how far ILMxLAB have managed to push their graphical technologies.
