Lucasfilm's ILMxLAB showed off a new trailer for Star Wars: Vader Immortal at Star Wars Celebration, giving the first real look at the gameplay and story for the long-awaited VR experience that the company is working on together with Oculus. You'll get to explore the base and you'll eventually find a lightsaber with which to do battle. Trials on Tatooine was a true blast - no pun intended - but Vader Immortal kicks things up a notch in a number of respects. It's flawless for VR.

Today at Star Wars Celebration Chicago the ILMxLAB team took a deep dive into what fans can expect from our latest narrative adventure, Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series - and there were a lot of details to share. With the help of a hovering droid named Zoey (voiced by Maya Rudolph, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part), your lowly smuggler must navigate the castle's halls, attempting to escape as Vader (voiced by Scott Lawrence, Star Wars Resistance) struggles with the darkness gripping his heart. The fact that the Oculus Quest rig is entirely untethered is key here. The upcoming all-in-one VR headset features six degrees of freedom and Touch controllers, and does not require a separate PC, wires, or any external sensors. Likewise, the system offers upgraded built-in audio with deeper bass. Finally, the included Touch Controllers let players interact naturally with the VR worlds around them.

We don't know yet exactly when the Oculus Quest and Vader Immortal will appear - but a "spring 2019" launch has repeatedly been mentioned, so it can't be far off. Similar to Trials on Tatooine the haptics of Vader Immortal on the Oculus Quest system are truly mind-blowing.
