Ever since Disney Infinity 2.0 introduced the worlds of Marvel Comics to the sandbox, fans have been anxiously awaiting confirmation that we’ll also see characters from a galaxy far, far away. Today, Disney Interactive Studios’ not entirely well-kept secret is finally out: Disney Infinity 3.0 will introduce Star Wars characters! In the player below, you can check out a first look video from Game Informer and, in the gallery viewer at the bottom of this page, check out the cover of their upcoming issue featuring several of the playable heroes and villains coming to the game this winter.
The Star Wars characters will launch with two different pack-in playsets, “Twilight of the Republic” and “Rise Against the Empire.” The former, from developer Ninja Theory, is set after Attack of the Clones and will see Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka take on a new droid army. The latter, then, hails from Studio Gobo and has Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia taking on Darth Vader with levels set on Hoth and Tatooine and during the Battle of Yavin.
Available separately are figurines of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Darth Maul, Darth Vader, Han Solo and Chewbacca. All Star Wars figurines will be playable in any Star Wars environment.
Outside of the Star Wars galaxy, Disney Infinity 3.0 will also introduce new figurines from the recent Avengers: Age of Ultron (including Hulkbuster), the upcoming Disney•Pixar animated feature Inside Out and even TRON: Legacy!
Disney Infinity 3.0 hits PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, iOS, and Android this fall.
UPDATE: Disney has now released an official trailer and screenshots! Check out the trailer directly below and the screenshots in the gallery viewer at the bottom of this page.
