Star Wars joins Disney Infinity 3.0


Andy
  • Star Wars has been confirmed as the latest franchise to join Disney Infinity, the best-selling hybrid toy and video game series.

Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition will add Star Wars favourites to the Infinity line-up, alongside Disney, Marvel, and Pixar characters that have already joined the video game series, with James Pitario, president of Disney Interactive saying the team have, "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."

Star Wars will debut on the platform with three playsets, one based on the prequel trilogy timeline, one based on the classic trilogy timeline, and the third to be released later this year based on The Force Awakens.

The announcement came shortly after leaked images appeared to show Star Wars characters alongside the familiar Disney Infinity branded packaging, and an official trailer has since been released:

 

 

Disney Infinity 3.0 is being developed for PlayStation4, PlayStation3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, iOS and Android.

    • Plug pulled on Disney Infinity

      Disney have announced that it's toys-to-life game platform Disney Infinity will be retired this year. The move is somewhat shocking given the platform's popularity with collectors and it's potential for expansion, with several projects being canned as a result.
      Disney Infinity 3.0 introduced Star Wars to the family of characters already available, and developers were reportedly working on content to be introduced alongside upcoming spin-off movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story as well as new 12-inch premium figures that would have extra in-game features as well as new physical attributes such as built-in lighting.
      The toys-to-life market has been growing crowded recently, with Activision's Skylander's remaining popular and relative newcomer Lego Dimensions also filling up toy store shelves. 
      The last figures to be released for the system will be three characters from Alice Through the Looking Glass and a Finding Dory playset coming in June 2016, so sadly there will be no new Star Wars additions to come.

      DICE's Star Wars Battlefront has opened the floodgates for gamers to sign up for the closed alpha testing of this eagerly anticipated game.
      One of the most eagerly awaited Star Wars video games in years, the long awaited reboot of the Star Wars Battlefront franchise has now launched the closed alpha sign-up process. The alpha is only for PC users, and does require an Origin account to join.

      Launching the game is disabled for now but will be available to install from 1st July, ready for alpha testing to begin.

    • Star Wars: Uprising follows on from Return of the Jedi

      Star Wars: Uprising, due later this year, will show us the state of the galaxy in the aftermath of Return of the Jedi.
      Developed by Kabam, Star Wars: Uprising is a new mobile game set after the events of the Battle of Endor in Return of the Jedi, where we finally saw the victory of the Rebel Alliance and the death of the Emperor. This new game which forms part of the official Star Wars canon storyline will give a glimpse of the aftermath of those events.
      We already know that things aren't going to be rosy in that galaxy far far away by the time The Force Awakens rolls around, but what we don't know is how the Rebel victory fell short of achieving it's goal to restore the Republic. The trailer for Uprising suggests that new enemies are rising to fill the power vacuum left by the Emperor, and you'll get the chance to take them on.
       
       
      Star Wars: Uprising is scheduled to release later this year for Android and iOS, with beta testing due this summer. Don't forget to check out the official Star Wars: Uprising site and sign up for updates.
