You can’t keep a good bad guy down. Darth Vader is returning in a new game for the Oculus Quest VR headset.
Vader’s return was confirmed as part of announcements coming out of Facebook’s Oculus Connect 5 conference.
Vader Immortal: Episode I is the first installment of a new game trilogy, and was written and produced by David S. Goyer. It takes place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.
From Venture Beat…
The original VR series will have three parts and is part of the same effort that led to The Void’s Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire location-based VR experience. David S. Goyer, a Hollywood screenwriter on everything from The Dark Knight trilogy to Call of Duty: Black Ops, is the executive producer and writer of the Vader experience. He is working with Mohen Leo, ILMxLAB director of immersive content, and Colum Slevin, head of experiences at Oculus, to bring Darth Vader to life.
