Disney Infinity 3.0 ‘Star Wars: Rise Against the Empire’ Takes You to Hoth, Tattooine and the Death Star
Avalanche Software has released some new screenshots and gameplay details about the Star Wars: Rise Against the Empire portion of Disney Infinity 3.0, Destructoid reports. While the Twilight of the Republic playset of Disney Infinity depicted the Clone Wars era, Rise Against the Empire will take place during the sacred trilogy and recreate some of Luke, Leia and Han's most epic adventures. As Twilight's visuals were based off of the Clone Wars animated series, we were used to seeing Anakin, Yoda and Obi-Wan rendered in this visual style. Now, we get to see Chewie, Han, Vader, Leia, Luke, Jabba, the Stormtroopers and everyone else rendered in the same style for the first time, which is awesome.
A major feature in Disney Infinity 3.0 will be the inclusion of vehicles you can control. As we all know, the Snowspeeder, X-Wing, Millennium Falcon and Star Wars' other iconic rides are pivotal parts of the series' mythos, and you'll be able to control these vehicles in Rise Against the Empire. You can shoot down TIE Fighters outside the Death Star, tie-up AT-ATs on Hoth and even ride the back of a Tauntaun in search of Luke. During the Hoth sequences, you're not limited to using the Snowspeeder, so if you want to destroy an AT-AT on foot like Luke did, feel free. In terms of figures, Disney Infinity 3.0's Star Wars: Rise Against the Empire playset will feature Darth Vader, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Chewbacca and more.
Star Wars: Rise Against the Empire will be sold as a separate playset from Disney Infinity 3.0. An upcoming playset based on Star Wars: The Force Awakens is in the works as well. Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic will be included in Disney Infinity 3.0's Starter Pack, which will cost $64.99 when it launches this fall for Wii U, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The Starter Pack will contain the Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano figurines as well as the Infinity base. Players should know that the series is forward compatible. This means that older figures from Disney Infinity 1-2 will work with 3.0, but the new figurines will not work with the previous versions of the game.
