Disney announced today the arrival of the Star Wars Universe in the upcoming game Disney Infinity 3.0, the follow-up to the action-adventure sandbox game franchise made by Avalanche Software and published by Disney Interactive. While last year’s 2.0 was all about Marvel characters, this year’s Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Starter Pack (priced at $64.99), will feature, according to the company:
• Three Star Wars Play Sets, one set in the timeline of Episodes I-III, the second set during the original trilogy, Episodes IV-VI, and the third available this winter based on Star Wars™: The Force Awakens™
• Additional Play Sets offering distinct gameplay and environments, including a Disney•Pixar Play Set based on the upcoming film Inside Out, and a Marvel Play Set featuring Hulkbuster Iron Man, Ultron, and other Marvel characters
• A fully enhanced Toy Box with two new multiplayer Toy Box Expansion Games, Toy Box Speedway (kart racing) and Toy Box Takeover (action-adventure)
• 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
“Disney Infinity is the only game where fans can play with Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars characters together in one experience,” said James Pitaro, President at Disney Interactive. “We worked closely with Lucasfilm to deliver an authentic Star Wars game experience, featuring some of the most iconic stories and characters from the past, present and future.”
Among the Star Wars play sets the fans will be seeing are: Rise Against the Empire (with Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, Han Solo, Chewbacca and Darth Vader), Twilight of the Republic (Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda and Darth Maul), and The Force Awakens (which will come later this winter).
Disney Infinity 3.0 will be available to PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One, iOS and Android. No release date has been mentioned yet.
