Vader Immortal Coming to PSVR on August 25
ILMxLAB’s three-part Star Wars VR story Vader Immortal which previously debuted on Oculus Rift and Oculus Quest is coming to PSVR on August 25, 2020.
It has been known the Star Wars hit is making its way to PSVR but during a State of Play presentation this week, it was revealed that it is actually coming to the platform much sooner, in late August. In Vader Immortal, the player breaches Darth Vader’s base and ultimately faces off with the Sith Lord.
Vader Immortal has a very immersive narrative experience. It is more of a “story living” than a VR game. It immerses you right in the middle of your very own Star Wars film.
Even if you are not interested in playing the game and have no problem with its spoilers, you can still immerse yourself in the storyline and watch the whole cinematic-style playthrough of the game from start to finish.
From this week’s reveal, it doesn’t appear like the PSVR version of Vader Immortal will feature any new content. Apart from the main campaign, the game also features lightsaber dojo training levels where you are pitted against droids swinging electrified batons which are shooting blasters at you from every direction.
On Oculus Quest, you can easily spin around and deflect or attack in Vader Immortal but PSVR being a 180-degree platform with only just one tracking camera, it will be interesting to see how the dojo training will translate in an environment with limited tracking capabilities.
This week, PlayStation also revealed that its Hitman 3 will also be coming to PSVR and the first two episodes in the trilogy will also be update with support.
