"At its core, Vader Immortal allows audiences to explore one central question: what would it be like for you to be a hero in a Star Wars adventure, and learn firsthand about Darth Vader's mysterious plans?" said Finely during the keynote. "We can't wait for audiences to continue their journey with Episode II."

In Episode II, audiences will learn the ways of the Force from the Sith Lord, and battle thrilling new Star Wars creatures while uncovering the secrets of Mustafar. They will also have the opportunity to hone their skills in Lightsaber Dojo II — a standalone training mode that combines lightsaber combat and Force powers for the first time in virtual reality.

"In Dojo II, you will be able to use the Force to stun, pick up, and fling your opponents across the arena," said Perez. "You can even use the Force to throw your lightsaber."
