Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series is coming to an end with its third episode soon, which ILMxLab says is set to arrive on November 21st on both Rift and Quest platforms.

Over the course of its two previous episodes, ILMxLab & Oculus’ co-venture into cinematic VR storytelling has not only offered up an astonishingly well-realized VR experience, featuring the cinematic world of Star Wars in a way we’ve frankly never experienced before, but has also brought some pretty surprising replay value to the table with its Lightsaber Dojos.

We’re more than a little sad that it has to come to an end so soon, but also earnestly excited to see the conclusion of what has proved to be a high point in the VR medium.

The studio reveals in an Oculus blog post that in Episode III we’re again taken to the fiery world of Mustafar. The studio teases that you’ll “need to use everything they’ve learned so far—both in and out of the Lightsaber Dojo—if they hope to battle their way to the epic conclusion.”

If you’ve played both previous episodes, than you know you’re not only in for lightsaber melee, but also a few force powers such as force push, force grab, and a few other force-related fighting techniques that combine the two.

The blog post also included what appears to be concept art featuring some large-scale battles between Imperial forces and rebels. Take a gander below:
