Return to the Dark Side alongside Darth Vader
During last week’s Star Wars Celebration in the UK, screenwriter David Goyer released a teaser for an upcoming Darth Vader VR story experience. Mr. Goyer has been working alongside Industrial Light & Magic ILMxLab to develop a one of a kind VR experience.
David Goyer said this on behalf of the project: “When we looked at all the characters, places, and worlds in the Star Wars universe available to us, we asked ourselves, ‘What haven’t we seen before? Who are we curious about?’ Darth Vader is the perfect ambassador to usher us into theStar Wars VR universe. We’re doing these builds, these proof of concepts. And the difference between cinema, television, and VR especially at the fidelity that this team is doing it, is you really feel like you’re there. The sense of presence, and it’s not just a buzz-word, when you guys get to experience it you will feel like you’re there.”
As of now, no word on a release date, Mr. Goyer did tease that we won’t get the full experience in a year or so, but I’ll be sure to keep an eye on this story as time follows.
