Recommended Posts

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.

    • Star Wars gaming on Xbox One

      Microsoft have announced that a new slew of classic Xbox titles will become compatible with their Xbox One console, including an impressive collection of Star Wars games which will join other titles in the Games On Demand section of the Xbox marketplace on 26 April 2018.
      The original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was previously added when the backwards compatible section was launched last year.
      You can find the full list of Star Wars games that will be available on Xbox Games On Demand below:
      Star Wars: Battlefront Star Wars: Battlefront II Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords Star Wars: Republic Commando  
      Additionally, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is available under the Xbox One X Enhanced series with updated graphics and visual effects.
      If you're looking for something a bit more recent, Xbox One titles Star Wars: Battlefront and Star Wars: Battlefront II are also available now.
    • Jedi: Fallen Order to be shown at Celebration

      Some long-awaited information about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be revealed at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago this April.
      New details, and gameplay footage are expected to be shown during a panel at the fan convention. Jedi: Fallen Order is developed by Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind Apex Legends, and will be the first major single-player game focused on lightsaber combat and Force powers since 2010's The Force Unleashed II.
      All that we know so far is that the game will put players in the shoes of a Jedi padawan who survived Order 66, although it has not been specified how long after the fall of the Jedi Order the game takes place. 
      Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is set for release in Fall 2019.
    • Jedi: Fallen Order to release this autumn

      EA have revealed during their recent financial statement that Respawn Entertainment's Star Wars video game, Jedi: Fallen Order, will release in autumn 2019.
      Despite being highly anticipated by fans there is little information available about Jedi: Fallen Order, and no screenshots or footage has been revealed. The game is set in the period between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, and is said to follow a Jedi being hunted down by agents of the Galactic Empire.
      Respawn's founder Vince Zampella has said that the game will be a single player action adventure game, that will (unsurprisingly) feature lightsaber combat. Development of the game is being lead by Stig Asmussen who was previously the creative lead on God of War III. In a 2016 blog post, Asmussen stated that Respawn "promise to pay respect to the Star Wars legacy at all times, a fact that will be constantly reinforced and honored as a central game design tenet."
      We impatiently await further details.
    • 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.
