Facebook, Oculus and Lucasfilm have announced a new series of interactive stories that will be exclusive to Oculus Quest when it launches in 2019. The first of these interactive stories will focus mainly on the key villain of the franchise, Darth Vader. .
Although details are sparse, we know that the experience will be released along with Oculus Quest in Spring (or around Q2 / Q3) 2019 and will be titled "A Star Wars VR Series: Vader Immortal: Episode I." It is developed by the internal development studio of Lucasfilm, ILMxLAB, known for its work in Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire and Trials in Tatooine virtual reality experiences.
The prices and international availability of Vader Immortal have not yet been revealed.
It's time to see Darth Vader's excavations
This first episode of Lucasfilm's Star Wars VR series will focus, as already mentioned, on Darth Vader, but particularly where Darth Vader hangs his … creepy oxygen mask. People will be invited to explore Mustafar in this first episode, the planet from which Vader directs the Empire.
Specifically, you will enter the corridors of Darth Vader Castle which is located in Mustafar, on the site of his defeat by Obi Wan Kenobi in the events of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
This should be particularly exciting for the mega Star Wars fans, since this corner of Darth Vader's character has remained virtually unexplored in the canon of Star Wars fiction with the exception of the castle cameo in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Now, all we can do is wait, and see that progress about two hundred times until the middle of 2019.
