EDITORIAL

Soon on your own screen...

... “Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series – Episode I, alongside the standalone Oculus Quest headset, is playable—and impressive, too. Strapping the Quest to my head, I was transported to a dark holding cell, where an Imperial officer with a half-metallic face warned me of the trouble I was sure to face when Darth Vader entered. And when the Sith Lord did indeed appear, he struck a very imposing figure—looking up at his iconic helmet is the kind of moment that takes on an extra edge in a VR setting. The second part of the demo was all about lightsaber-swinging shenanigans in the Lightsaber Dojo, as I swatted freely with the Quest’s motion controllers to slice through saber-wielding droids and reflect laser blasts from hovering drones. As the Quest is fully self-contained and not tethered to a computer or game console, I could easily spin to meet my foes from all angles, with the headset’s outward-facing cameras keeping tabs on the real-world play space and warning me if I came too close to a wall...
