ILMxLAB and Perp Games are teaming up to take on the retail universe with a physical release of Vader Immortal on PSVR.
Developer ILMxLAB and publisher Perp Games have announced today that they’ll be releasing a physical edition of Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series for PSVR later this year, and it’ll come with a whole range of special goodies.
The Special Retailer Edition of Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series will include the game on a disc, physical postcards, and footage that has never been seen before. Presumably, these will be clips from behind the scenes of the game’s production, which is sure to be an interesting watch.

“Here at ILMxLAB we are excited to team up with Perp Games for the Special Retail Edition of Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series,” said Harvey Whitney, ILMxLAB Producer. “It’s great to be able to bring our award-winning immersive story about one of the most iconic villains of all time to even more Star Wars fans, with unique and fun extras to enjoy. We are all looking forward to seeing it in stores later this Spring.”
“ILMxLAB has done an incredible job in bringing the Star Wars universe to VR,” said Rob Edwards, Managing Director at Perp Games. “Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series is stunning. It is an honour to publish a very special physical product, and we can’t wait for both VR and Star Wars fans to experience the Physical Edition.”
Vader Immortal started out on Oculus Quest before being ported to PC and then to PSVR. No matter where it has been released, the game has been well-received for its awesome lightsaber gameplay, though criticised for its short running time. It’s still the best Star Wars VR game we have – and basically the only one on PSVR – so its shortcomings are easy to overlook. It’s good fun and if you haven’t already played it because you were holding out for a physical release, be sure to keep an eye out for this when it releases later this year. There’s no release date at this time, mind you, but we’ll let you know when it is announced.
