  • Star Wars: Vader Immortal Tease May Hint At New Villain
    Star Wars: Vader Immortal Tease May Hint At New Villain

    Yesterday’s Oculus Quest sizzle reel held lots of surprises. We saw the reveal of new games like Creed: Rise to Glory and Vacation Simulator. Perhaps most excitingly, though, we got our first in-game look at Star Wars: Vader Immortal. The story-driven experience will debut on Quest later this year and will get a full reveal at Star Wars Celebration next month. But eagle-eyed Star Wars fans think even this tiny glimpse provides some story clues.

    In the snippet, we see Darth Vader himself marching towards us. But, behind him, there’s what looks like an Imperial Officer standing guard. He seems to be sporting the same green uniform and cap seen in the movies. But, more notably, he also sports a robotic arm and, when he turns towards the camera, we see around three-quarters of his face appears to be metallic too. Clearly this character has a bigger role to play than just an identi-kit guard?

    There could already be an explanation for what’s going on here. As one fan pointed out on Twitter, this guard could be a character from the series’ expanded universe known as Vidian. Vidian makes his first appearance in the 2014 book, A New Dawn, written by John Jackson Miller. It’s a prequel to the Star Wars: Rebels animated series, which itself is set between the events of the Revenge of the Sith and Rogue One movies. Vader Immortal also takes place in this broad window.

    In the book, Vidian is working for the Empire when he contracts a rare disease called Shilmer’s syndrome. It’s a degenerative disorder that consumes the victim’s limbs and vocal cords. Like Vader himself, Vidian survives by rebuilding parts of himself mechanically.

    It’s quite possible that we’re looking at Vidian here, then. Or, at the very least, it could be another character that also contracts Shilmer’s syndrome. Back at the start of the year, ILMxLAB teased Vader Immortal as a ‘new opportunity to cheat death’. Rebuilding yourself to avoid falling to a fatal disease certainly seems to fit in with that phrasing.

    It’s all just speculation at this point, but it’s an interesting theory. We’ll no doubt find out more when Vader Immortal gets its full reveal on April 12th.

  • Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot Gets July Release, Rift Support Confirmed
    Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot Gets July Release, Rift Support Confirmed

    Put another big VR game down on your release calendar. Betheda’s Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot just got a release date, and it’s a few months away.

    The series’ first VR spin-off will arrive on July 26th 2019. Word comes by way of a new Steam listing that also confirms it will support HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. The latter hadn’t previously been confirmed, no doubt due to Oculus and Bethesda owner ZeniMax getting into a recently-settled legal scuffle.

    There’s also a PlayStation Store listing that confirms the PSVR launch will be on the same day. That’s also the same day as the new co-op shooter, Wolfenstein: Youngblood arrives. That means we’ll probably get another look at it during Bethesda’s upcoming E3 2019 press conference in June.

    Cyberpilot is a very different beast to Youngblood, taking you to 1980’s Paris. This time you hack into Nazi war machines and charge through the city streets causing as much havoc as possible. We tried the game when it was announced at E3 last year but we weren’t too taken with it. Whilst it has more polish than a lot of other VR games out there, the lack of threat and variety made it pretty dull to play. Hopefully that’s been changed up for the final release.

    The game’s being developed by both series developer Machine Games and Dishonored creator Arkane Studios. What we don’t know is just how much content the full experience will offer. Will we be getting a full campaign or is this more of an experience?

    Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot will cost $19.99. If you want to get the full Wolfenstein experience in VR, though, might we recommend this brilliant mod for the original classic?

    Another VR favorite is on its way to the standalone Oculus Quest headset. Schell Games just confirmed that I Expect You To Die will release on the platform.

    Word comes by way of a tweet from the company seen below. There aren’t any other details but we’d hope for a full port of the original game to Quest.

    As the name implies, I Expect You To Die is a secret agent-themed VR game. You take on a number of challenging levels in which you must solve puzzles and dodge obstacles in order to achieve your objective and escape with your life. It’s a recipe for trial and error chaos; one wrong move and bombs explode in your face and lasers slice right through you. More importantly, though, it’s a heck of a lot of fun to poke around in.

    Earlier this year Schell Games confirmed to UploadVR that new content was in the works for I Expect You To Die. At the same time, the studio’s Jesse Schell predicted Oculus Quest would sell a million units this year.

    Again, it’s not clear if these new levels will be included in the Quest version of the game or if they might arrive later on, if at all. Currently, Schell is working on a VR sword fighter named Until You Fall.

    Oculus Quest hits this spring with a 64GB model for $399. A $499 128GB model will also launch at the same time.

  • VRChat Confirms Spring Launch Plans For Oculus Quest
    vrchat quest oculus spring

    A number of VR studios planning Oculus Quest titles confirmed development for the standalone VR console today. Among them — VRChat announced plans to come to Oculus Quest in Spring 2019.

    VRChat is a social networking service that started in VR but extended to flat screens for periods of explosive growth. We’ve reached out to VRChat representatives to understand the nature of the Oculus Quest integration. Some of the worlds people can visit in the title can be pretty resource-intensive, even for a VR-ready PC, so we will be curious to see how the company is able to extend its community to Quest.

    We’ve got a huge announcement. #VRChat is coming Spring 2019 to Oculus Quest! @OculusGaming #oculusquest pic.twitter.com/QbuupfDfXg

    Rec Room also announced plans for a Quest version and we’ve confirmed cross-play support is planned for that game. Last week, we played Beat Saber on Oculus Quest and enjoyed it considerably. Along with other high-selling VR games like Job Simulator and I Expect You To Die, Facebook appears to have arranged quite the lineup of titles for Oculus Quest in 2019.

    Oculus Quest launches this spring for around $400 and 64 GB of storage. It features two hand controllers, is completely wireless and doesn’t need a PC or phone to operate. Another version with 128 GB of storage will sell for $500. Facebook is taking a more curated approach to allowing content onto Quest than we’ve seen with its PC-based Rift. The company, however, promised more than 50 titles for the launch of the headset with more planned throughout the year.

    Stay tuned as we gather more updates about VRChat and Oculus Quest in 2019.

    Apex Construct Is Coming To Oculus Quest Soon From Fast Travel Games

    Another Oculus Quest reveal for you; Fast Travel Game’s Apex Construct is on the way soon.

    Fast Travel itself confirmed as much in the below tweet. Details are thin right now but it’s not hard to imagine a full port of the original game appearing on Oculus’ upcoming standalone headset.

    Our award-winning, single player action/adventure @ApexConstructVR is coming to @Oculus Quest! More details to follow in the near (and very robot-filled) future… #OculusQuest #ApexConstruct #VR pic.twitter.com/t7ir6XfJ8j

    — Fast Travel Games (@fasttravelgames) March 27, 2019

    Apex Construct is a first-person action game. It lets players explore a post-apocalyptic world caught in a war between two AIs. You wield a bow and arrow and trek through a full campaign, fighting off drone enemies, solving puzzles and more.

    We were quite fond of the game when it originally launched on PSVR and PC VR last year. It had a few rough edges but pretty closely resembled the kind of ‘full’ VR experience many fans are asking for. At GDC last year Fast Travel showcased the game running on mobile VR hardware, so we’d always expected a Quest port sooner or later.

    Quest is a standalone VR headset, which means it doesn’t need a phone or PC to power it. Experiences won’t be able to hit the same visual fidelity as those on Rift, then, but the six degrees of freedom (6DOF) tracking on an untethered headset will hopefully make for a worthy trade-off.

    More information on the Quest port will be revealed soon. Quest itself is launching this spring. A 64GB model will be available for $399 and a 128GB model will cost $499.
