‘Star Wars’ VR series confirmed for PlayStation VR this summer

Players will need to channel the power of the Force as they journey through the Star Wars universe to fight Darth Vader in PlayStation VR.

ILMxLAB and Sony has announced on the PlayStation Blog that the Star Wars: Vader Immortal game will be released on PlayStation VR this summer. However, there is no specific date stated on when it will be released.

The Vader Immortal trilogy was first released on The Oculus VR and now is being transitioned to the PlayStation VR. All three episodes of the game will be released as one pack when it is ready for launch. This is a huge difference from how it was released on the PC and Oculus.

Impressive short game

The game introduces players as a crook who accidentally bumps into Darth Vader. Over the three episodes players will have the chance to play as a hesitant ally and eventually will lead to a big fight with the big bad while learning about his past.

The award-winning game was written along with the Lucasfilm Story Group and is considered to have happened between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. While the main campaign focuses more into the story, the Playstation VR release will include the famous Jedi Dojo mode.

The mode allows players to practice, play around with various lightsabers and use the power of the Force more freely than on the campaign mode. Whether a fan or not, the game will let players enjoy Vader Immortal’s intricate details in its environment and the satisfaction of wielding around a glowing sword is amazing.

The game does an exemplary job of setting up the Star Wars universe from Imperial penitentiaries to small smuggler space capsules. The game is filled with interactive things to play with partnered with breathtaking scenery.

In addition, there is nothing more terrifying than being stared down by Darth Vader himself. The price of the PlayStation VR is still unknown but the complete trilogy costs about $30 (47AUD) on the Oculus.
