Virtual reality has always been a promising technology and several generations into VR hardware, it’s now incredibly compelling. The latest release from virtual reality pioneer Oculus is the Oculus Quest, an all-in-one VR headset that eliminates the wires and the need for a PC. The biggest buzz in VR gaming is Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series. The award-winning game trilogy takes a deep dive into Darth Vader’s past, letting users get hands-on with iconic Star Wars weaponry and ultimately take on the Sith Lord himself in a duel. And the final episode lands today, November 21. Put these two together, and you have something really special. That’s right, it’s bundle time.
For a limited time, buy an Oculus Quest VR headset and you get all three episodes of Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series for free!
Episode 3 of Vader Immortal arrives today
November 21 is the launch date for the third and final instalment of the Vader Immortal series. Here’s what to expect:
“In Episode III, players will lead an attack on Vader’s castle with a contingent of friendly forces. Like in the first two episodes, fans will learn new skills and techniques to help them on their mission, like how to use an Imperial Blaster and thermal detonators, in addition to wielding an ancient lightsaber and Force powers. Players will need every advantage as they clash with stormtroopers, Imperial officers, and other enemies on a climactic push to reach the top of the castle where Vader, and the fate of Mustafar, await.”
Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series — Episode III arrives today for the Oculus Quest. And it’s included, along with the first two episodes, when you buy an Oculus Quest VR headset.

Oculus cut the cables when it released the Quest VR headset and made virtual reality accessible to a far wider audience.
You get a pair of second generation wireless Oculus Touch controllers that are tracked by four ultra wide angle sensors. Visuals are more immersive than ever with a two OLED displays, each with a resolution of 1440 x 1600 pixels, and a 72Hz refresh rate. The entire headset weighs just 571 grams, and has built-in speakers. And you don’t need a gaming PC—or any computer for that matter—to play.

VR looks kind of fun, but I have not yet had an opportunity to experience it. There is a large, and growing, list of games that I want to try out on VR and this might just have become one of them. Thanks for checking it out!
That looks really cool! I’m still a little timid about VR, but this might help me jump in!
