Two years ago this week Star Wars fans got their first taste of Vader Immortal at Star Wars Celebration Chicago. Today, ILMxLAB have announced that a special edition of Star Wars’ first ever VR series will be coming to retail this Spring.
Earlier this morning the official Twitter account for ILMxLAB revealed that they are partnering with Perp Games to release a Special Retail Edition of the game for PlayStation VR. This new edition of Vader Immortal will include all three episodes of the VR series, a digital artbook, postcards, and more.

The VR series allows players to step into a galaxy far, far away as they find themselves captive to Darth Vader and imprisoned in his fortress on Mustafar. Whilst I’ve never played Vader Immortal I have experienced ILMxLAB’s Secrets of the Empire, which serves as a prequel to the VR series, and that was absolutely incredible. It truly felt like getting to be part of the story. Whilst Vader Immortal lacks some of the more physical elements of Secrets of the Empire, it adds a longer narrative, lets players wield a lightsaber, and brings you face to face with Vader himself as you explore his castle over three episodes of content.
“Step inside a galaxy far, far away with Vader Immortal. You are a smuggler operating near Mustafar, the fiery world Darth Vader calls home. When you are unexpectedly pulled out of hyperspace, you find yourself uncovering an ancient mystery at the behest of the Sith Lord himself.
With the help of your droid companion, ZO-E3, you’ll navigate the dangers of the fortress, hone your lightsaber skills, and meet new characters along the way as you discover what Vader is up to.”
Vader Immortal: Special Retail Edition will be available in stores this Spring.
