A very long time in the past in a press launch far, distant, ILMxLAB revealed that they had been engaged on a digital actuality journey starring Darth Vader. Well, immediately we bought our first take a look at Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series in the previous couple of years, and it is…one thing.
Based on what we see on this trailer, it seems that the plot of this sequence – or not less than this episode – will happen between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. It sees an unidentified particular person being drawn to Vader’s liquid scorching magma evil lair on Mustafar. It appears that Vader has introduced this particular person to Dr. Evil’s summer time house for a selected function. Unfortunately, he doesn’t reveal that function.
That’s about all we all know when it comes to concrete particulars, however there are different plot factors implied by this trailer. The undeniable fact that Vader is accompanied by an interrogation droid tends to counsel that he believes this unidentified particular person might know one thing particular/priceless. The undeniable fact that we see a lightsaber duel on the finish of the trailer additionally implies that both the person – or a mysterious outdoors get together – could also be one of many Jedi who survived Order 66.
All of that’s fascinating, however probably the most fascinating features of this challenge stay the issues we do not learn about it.
For occasion, are we wanting at the beginning of the plot of this whole sequence, or is that this some type of journey restricted to the primary episode? Is the explanation that we do not see the “hero” of the trailer so simple as the truth that the builders need you to really feel just like the protagonist, or are they attempting to hide the id of a beforehand established Star Wars character?
Most importantly, what, precisely, is that this challenge? It appears to be a narrative-driven VR journey with interactive components, however how interactive is Vader Immortal actually going to be? Our greatest guess is that is it is going to be a largely on-the-rails Star Wars story.
We’ll know for certain when Vader Immortal debuts in 2019.
