Admit it. You’ve been wanting to try out the Oculus exclusive series Star Wars Vader Immortal since it first came to Rift and Quest last year. Now ILMxLAB says it’s preparing to bring the award-winning narrative adventure series to PSVR.

Vader Immortal is coming to PSVR this summer, ILMxLAB Creative Executive Producer Mark S. Miller announced in a PS blog post. Unlike its trilogy-style, piecemeal roll-out on Rift and Quest, the PSVR version is coming out in a single package, Miller says.

Although it’s not a full-blown Star Wars VR game, leaning more towards the ‘cinematic experience’ spectrum, Vader Immortal offers some of the most immersive environments, character design, story, and atmosphere we’ve ever seen in VR. Yes, the story mode part of the game is entirely scripted, and doesn’t offer much in the way of a challenge to complete when it does throw action your way, but it’s still an absolute blast to wield a lightsaber and get face-to-face with the tall dark and not-so-handsome Sith lord himself.

And once you’re done with the story, you can hone your Jedi skills in one of three ‘lightsaber dojos’, which present some of the best, most challenging wave-based combat out there. You might think that’s not saying much, but it actually turned out to be a highlight of the adventure on our first go around on Quest.

In fact, we liked the first episode so much we gave it Road to VR’s 2019 Oculus Quest Game of the Year.

    Bring it to Steam you cowards.

      They are so dumb. Probably for the rest of the year both Valve and Oculus will sell Headsets faster than they can produce them. So the only way to make more money for Oculus is to sell more software. Which could be easily done if they brought their exclusives to SteamVR.

        no game for steam until valve bring half life alyx to oculus

          They’d need to convert it to use the Oculus SDK – the Oculus Store doesn’t allow any games with SteamVR driver support to be included. This would break Index controller compatibility, as the Touch controllers don’t have pressure sensor API support. On the contrary, Steam store has always allowed Oculus-only API titles to be sold(there’s a number of them marked Oculus support only).

          It also wouldn’t run on Valve’s own headset if bought from the Oculus Store, without using Revive and then it’d be limited by the Oculus API not having other features Valve’s hardware has.

          Any steamVR game works with an Oculus headset. All Oculus software actively prevents you from using any other headset.

    A while ago Oculus talked about being open to swap exclusives, I wonder if this coming to psvr might mean we get a psvr game…

    • DickDastardly

      Would kill for a PCVR/Quest port of Wipeout.

      • ivan

        Redout on PC pretty much the same with VR support and graphics is better

    • I had the same thought…. and I hope for Resident Evil on Rift!

      • ivan

        Resident Evil won’t come. It is no longer exclusive for PS VR, just developers don’t won’t to spend time on implementing VR support on PC
