    Definitely interested to see where this goes. Besides Darth Maul, I haven't liked any other Star wars Antagonist other than Vader. Vader is just bad ass all around.

    I'm REALLY not getting my hopes up. Star Wars games have been disappointing for YEARS. And we don't even know if it's going to be a game, an experience or just news of this VOID thing at OC5. I'm keeping my expectations as just this VOID thing, and am telling myself that even if it's a game or experience it's going to be a pile of old pants. That way I'm not going to be disappointed AGAIN. :angry:

    ILMxLAB has confirmed that all of their Star Wars projects will involve Oculus as their primary partner. This is the same group who built the Star Wars experience for The Void.

    We will be getting a 3-part series centered on Darth Vader. EXCITING AS HELL!!

    Episode 1 of this series will debut as a Launch Title on Oculus Quest.

    I have heard amazing things regarding the Secret of the Empire Void experience.  Hoping it will still be there when I go to Disney in November.  With the success they have had in that area and the same person doing the story I will allow myself to be excited about this.

    Ditto on Secret. It's why I'm still looking at this game and waiting lol.

    I liked Vader in the original trilogy but I felt like they made him look a bit weak since Luke seemed pretty weak but overall it worked. Then when I started dipping into the lore behind Vader (Some of it not canon granted) about how Sidious made his suit basically torture him to control him...but the agony just fed Vader's hatred and made him stronger. All of it just makes for an amazing character. Anyway, I hope we can play as Vader and kill some Ewoks lol.J/K, well mostly.

    I'm just curious to see what kind of game this will end up being. If it's a story driven experience or just a shallow tour like experience or what. Have they stated that anywhere?

    I agree you. We haven't seen any gameplay. I doubt they'll make a good game. I bet it's Robo Recall with a Star Wars skin.  

    Why did we see a robot swinging a lightsaber? How many robots do we have to kill? Oculus' aversion to violence is actually hurting VR because it's the opposite of what gamers want.

    Yeah, I watched that "trailer" and have absolutely no clue what that star wars thing is supposed to be. Is it a game? Is it a video? Nothing is revealed.

    First, so you own the entire OOH sector now? Secondly, it's clearly shown to be Oculus Quest at the end of the trailer and they mentioned it as such during the presentation.

    Nope, this is what is launching with Oculus Quest (previously Santa Cruz) in Spring of 2019. It is from the same group that made The Void experience, but this is coming to consumers. That is "our sector"

    @kevinw729 remember in another thread when someone was asking if SC would be possibly capable of 1:1 environment tracking for OOH?

    Here is the thread: https://forums.oculusvr.com/community/discussion/comment/639227#Comment_639227

    Has your opinion changed at all since then?

    Also, turns out I was right, persistent environments with Oculus "Insight" is a thing :)

    Vader Immortal
    is an odd choice of title, considering what happened to him in Return Of The Jedi. :)

    Thanks for the question @LZoltowski - yes it looks like the demo at OC5 creates a great approximation of a 1:1 environment - and I congratulate the team at OVR for achieving this. However the limitations of the system were kinda obvious for those that played the Beta last month, and who are trying it now.

    You remember my comment was that this would be close, but more a prototyping tool than able to play The VOID - I still feel that. Without the fx and the haptics as well as able to create a detailed 1:1 representation, and most importantly the performance, you are only getting a tenth of what SPACES, Dreamscape and The VOID are achieving - but this is a great start.

    People are loving D&BA at OC5 - and has sparked a whole load of questions of how to get this system into the hands of the VR arcade sector  B)

    Yep, it seems that Facebook keeps certain software exclusive in order to properly distinguish the benefit and offerings of each Platform.

    Not sure if anyone is already aware, but the developer of Hellblade VR is going to be involved in the Vader Immortal VR experience for Quest. Exciting!!
