Star Wars VR Experience Vader Immortal Is a Fully-Fledged Game

Published

Vader Immortal

Lucasfilm’s next Star Wars VR experiment will be much more ambitious than its previous ones, with Vader Immortal being a full—though episodic—game.

This project differs from the previous Trials on Tatooine and Secrets of the Empire experiments in key ways.

The former was a free, contained experience that had players repairing the Millennium Falcon and defending R2-D2 in a desert environment.

Meanwhile, Secrets of the Empire is a more complete experience hosted at selected locations.

Vader Immortal, though, will be available to all owners of Oculus Rift and Oculus Quest headsets. Environmental interaction, stealth, and lightsaber combat are some of the gameplay elements evident in the new trailer embedded below.

The game also seems to be heavily story-focused, beginning with players trapped in Darth Vader’s fortress on Mustafar, before enabling them to escape and uncover revelations about the Sith’s plans.

Set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, the game falls into the same time frame as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, though whether it is connected to either of those earlier narratives is as yet unknown.

Vader Immortal is set to release in three parts, with the first set to arrive in the northern hemisphere’s spring.

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine Adds Chinese-American Stories and Chinese Localization

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine will be receiving a new content update featuring Chinese-American stories, including full Chinese language support.

According to Steam, a new content update entitled “Gold Mountain” is available for anyone who owns the game. The update focuses on new tales focusing on Chinese Americans and their impact on American history and culture. The Steam update also explains the reasoning for including these stories:

“The Gold Mountain update was created to honor the millions of Chinese-Americans generally overlooked in American history. We hope that you enjoy the new original stories that are included in the update and look forward to reading all of your thoughts.”

Additionally, the ‘Gold Mountain’ update includes full Chinese language support for the game’s ‘Fireside Chats’, which is a free standalone experience that adds exclusive story content to the game’s 16 characters. The full Chinese version of the main game will release once the Chinese localization team, led by Ryan Zhang, finishes the new content.

OnlySP’s Derek Swinhart was left disappointed by the game when it released last year, stating that it promised “a long and exciting road-trip across unknown territory, but ends up only offering flat tires and postcards of better places.”
