Disney Infinity 3.0 to Feature Star Wars and Age of Ultron
The house of Mickey has finally done it: Disney Infinity 3.0 will unite Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars characters under one roof for some massive adventures.
Disney has confirmed with Game Informer that Star Wars is coming to Disney Infinity 3.0, adding our favorite faces from a galaxy far, far away to the series. Avalanche Software will be making figures and in-game adventures spanning both the original and prequel trilogies. The studio will also be signing on other developers to work on Disney Infinity 3.0's various toy packs and multi-console releases. For example, the DmC: Devil May Cry team at Ninja Theory will be making the Twilight of the Republic playset, which will star Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka in a story set between Episodes II and III. Able to interact with this set will be the Darth Maul, Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi figures (each sold separately).
The third-person action gurus at Ninja Theory will also be designing the game's melee combat system, which we're sure everyone will love due to the addition of lightsabers to the game. Sumo Digital will be adding kart races to the list of Toy Box games. Studio Gobo will be crafting the Rise Against the Empire set, which will highlight most of the original Star Wars trilogy. While you'll be able to use the Chewie, Han, Vader, Leia, and Luke figures with this set, you can also use prequel characters to make things paradoxical but fun. As you would expect, new playsets are being developed based on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Inside Out and The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
We know what you're here for: a list of the new figures, right? Here are just a few of the new toys coming to Disney Infinity 3.0: Hulkbuster Iron Man, Ultron, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, Sam Flynn, Quorra (Tron: Legacy), Mulan, Olaf, Joy, Disgust, Anger, Fear, Sadness (Inside Out), Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Ahsoka, Anakin Skywalker, Darth Maul, Obi-Wan Kenobi, C-3PO, R2-D2 and many others.
Disney Infinity 3.0 will launch this fall for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and mobile formats. Its Starter Pack will cost $64.99 and will likely have three figurines included. With Disney Infinity 2.0, PlayStation owners were able to buy an exclusive Collector's Edition of the game, which included Captain America, Hawkeye and the Hulk as bonus figures atop the Starter Pack's standard set of Thor, Iron Man and Black Widow. Based on the popularity of the Infinity series, we have a feeling Avalanche Software has another Premium/Collector's Edition in the works. We should note that the Disney Infinity series is forward compatible, meaning that older figures will work with Disney Infinity 3.0, but new ones will not work with Disney Infinity 2.0 or the first version of the game.
