May the 4th be with you!
To celebrate Star Wars Day, ILMxLAB has just announced that Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series will be coming to PlayStation® VR this Summer.
All three episodes will be available together as one individual purchase, bringing the complete VR trilogy together.
“We are very excited to be partnering with Sony to bring Vader Immortal to PlayStation VR,” said Mark Miller, Executive Creative Producer at ILMxLAB.
Vader Immortal, which debuted with Episode I on May 21, 2019, has been acclaimed by both press and fans. Fans have enjoyed stepping into the role of a Force-sensitive smuggler, and they have spent hours mastering the Lightsaber Dojo to unlock the lightsaber hilts of Darth Maul, Ahsoka Tano, Luke Skywalker, and Kylo Ren.
The series won Best VR/AR Game at the 2020 Game Developers’ Choice Awards, and Vader Immortal: Episode I won VR Experience of the Year at the 2019 VR Awards, took home the inaugural Innovation Award at the 2020 Producers Guild Awards, and was named a Finalist for Outstanding Innovation in Interactive Media at the 2019 Emmys.
“I never get tired of watching people react to Darth Vader approaching them, following them with his gaze and speaking directly to them,” said Miller. “We can’t wait to share this experience with a broader audience.”
