Disney Interactive is completing today’s Disney Infinity 3.0 news cycle with an official announcement.
First, here’s a brief overview as to what’s new in the upcoming version:
- 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
And here’s an overview of the different Star Wars Play Sets:
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.
Aside from the likes of Star Wars Play Sets, Disney Infinity 3.0 also introduces the new 3D Toy Box Hub, which allows players to more easily choose from a wider selection of gameplay experiences. The different types include platform, racing, and farming simulation games. Toy Box Takeover (action-adventure gameplay) and Toy Box Speedway (kart racing) will be added as Toy Box Expansion Games.
Disney Infinity 3.0 will support all figures and Power Discs from the original 1.0 and 2.0 editions. These items will work in the game’s enhanced Toy Box. Power Discs will now be sold in labeled franchise-specific packs of four. We’ll be hearing about more Disney, Disney•Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars figures and Play Sets “in the coming months.”
Disney Infinity 3.0 launches this fall. The Starter Pack is priced at $64.99, and includes the Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Base and software, the Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic Play Set, Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker character figures, and a web code card that unlocks content for PC and mobile devices.
