New Star Wars: Vader Immortal Episode Surprise Launches Today
Battle "thrilling Star Wars creatures" with your new Force powers.
During today's Oculus Connect 6 presentation, developer ILMxLAB has announced that Vader Immortal: Episode II is out right now. In a press release, publisher Oculus Studios confirmed that the game is available on both Oculus Quest and Rift for $10 USD, with cross-buy between the two platforms enabled.
Episode II continues where Vader Immortal: Episode I left off, with you back in control Darth Vader's new recruit. In this episode, Vader will teach you the Force as you embark on a quest to uncover the secrets of Mustafar and "battle thrilling new Star Wars creatures." Episode II also features Lightsaber Dojo II, a standalone training mode where you can improve your proficiency with both the Force and your trusty lightsaber.
Senior producer Alyssa Finley spoke a bit about Vader Immortal during the presentation. "At its core, Vader Immortal allows audiences to explore one central question: what would it be like for you to be a hero in a Star Wars adventure, and learn firsthand about Darth Vader's mysterious plans?" she said. "We can't wait for audiences to continue their journey with Episode II."
Vader Immortal is a three-part canonical Star Wars story, sitting between the events of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. It's written by David S. Goyer, who wrote The Dark Knight trilogy and is also currently working on the Secrets of the Empire VR experience.
