Disney Interactive have announced that Star Wars will join the Disney Infinity series bringing all your favourite characters into a sci-fi world. Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition will feature three play sets; Twilight of the Republic set during episodes I-III, Rise Against the Empire based on the original trilogy and one influenced by Star Wars: The Force Awakens which will be available at the end of the year.
Each of the Star Wars Play Sets offers distinct experiences with varied gameplay, environments and characters. The Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic Play Set takes place in the height of the Jedi’s powers where players will use the Force and Lightsabers in epic battles and master their combat skills alongside Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda and Darth Maul. The Star Wars: Rise Against the Empire Play Set will take players on galaxy spanning missions with Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, Han Solo, Chewbacca and Darth Vader, piloting X-wing fighters or the Millennium Falcon to fight stormtroopers, or exploring and partaking in land based missions on planets like Tatooine, Hoth, and Endor. Additionally fans will have the unique opportunity to play with all of the Star Wars characters in all of the Star Wars Play Sets.
Disney Infinity 3.0 will also include a Play Set based on Inside Out, a new Disney Pixar film, and there will be a new Marvel Play Set featuring characters from the latest Marvel film. More figures of fan favorite characters from across The Walt Disney Company, like Mickey and Minnie, Sam Flynn and Quorra from Tron: Legacy, Mulan and Olaf, among many others will be coming to Disney Infinity 3.0.
Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition will also introduce an all new 3D Toy Box Hub that will make it easier for players to choose from a wider selection of gameplay experiences including platform, racing, and farming simulation games. Two new multiplayer Toy Box Expansion Games will bring action-adventure gameplay in Toy Box Takeover and kart racing in Toy Box Speedway, where kids and families can play with popular Disney, Disney Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars characters together in a structured setting.
All figures and Power Discs from the 1.0 and 2.0 editions of Disney Infinity will be compatible with Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition in the enhanced Toy Box and for the first time Power Discs will be sold in labeled franchise specific packs of four. The Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Starter Pack will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Wii U, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC this fall at a suggested retail price of US$64.99.
