Star Wars fans and first timers to the Disney Infinity series are in luck, because Twilight of the Republic is included in the starter set for the new 3.0. 

On the release date, two playsets will be available with more to come. The starter pack will include Anakin and Asoka, although Obi-Wan and Yoda may be purchased separately. Unfortunately, Darth Maul won't be available until November. Other characters, such as Luke and Boba Fett, based on the upcoming The Force Awakens, are only available as console exclusives and will be available this winter.

Twilight of the Republic will allow players to visit open worlds such as Tatooine, Coruisant, and Geonosis. As players fight the Separatists, they will do so alongside Anakin and Asoka, as well as any other characters from the playsets. Each character (and Power Discs and play set pieces) will unlock additional content if placed on the Infinity Base.

Disney will release more content such as Marvel Battlegrounds later on and Tron characters upon release. Versions 1.0 and 2.0 will be able to play along with all 3.0 characters in the Toy Box.

Disney Infinity 3.0 drops tomorrow and is available on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Wii U. You will also be able to download it for free on your iPad, iPhone, Android device, Windows 10 device, and PC. The starter set is also at the reduced cost of $64.99.

Disney Infinity 3.0 release date is official https://www.gameskinny.com/4zimm/disney-infinity-30-release-date-is-official https://www.gameskinny.com/4zimm/disney-infinity-30-release-date-is-official Thu, 09 Jul 2015 07:30:26 -0400 Curtis Dillon

The third iteration of Disney's mega-popular, mega-anticipated Disney Infinity 3.0  will release on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Wii U on August 30.

Disney Infinity 3.0 is the latest playset to release in the series, and this one is all about Star Wars. The starter pack launches with the game, two figurines and the chip reader base needed to put said figurines into the game. The two figurines available with the starter pack, Twilight of the Republic, are Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker.

Should fans pre-order the game at select retailers they can get their hands on a new Toy Box Takeover game piece for free. Toy Box Takeover is a new game mode in the Infinity Toy Box in which the villains do just that: takeover.

Additionally, if fans want a pretty awesome Boba Fett figure at launch, as well as another playset, they will only be able to do so via special editions of the game on Sony platforms. Keep in mind the figure and playset will be available on other platforms later; this is a timed exclusive.


There's no denying how awesome that is

More figures will be released post-launch and you can expect to see Obi-Wan Kanobi, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Darth Maul, and others. But Star Wars isn't the only new addition to the Toy Box with 3.0, Disney Pixar's new movie, Inside Out, will be getting 5 figures, and Avengers: Age of Ultron will get some love too.

Disney Infinity 3.0 adds a host of new features into the series, as well as addresses the problems fans had with 2.0. For everything on Disney Infinity 3.0 you can check out our huge rundown right here. And for all future news on Disney, Star Wars and all things gaming, keep it here on GameSkinny.

The Force Awakens in Disney Infinity 3.0 https://www.gameskinny.com/yhqy5/the-force-awakens-in-disney-infinity-30 https://www.gameskinny.com/yhqy5/the-force-awakens-in-disney-infinity-30 Wed, 06 May 2015 00:30:01 -0400 amaadify

Today, Disney Interactive announced the latest installment into their famous toys-to-life game, Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition. Many new characters are coming to the title, including the greatly anticipated representatives of the Star Wars series.

After Marvel superheroes were introduced in Disney Infinity 2.0, many fans were clamoring for their favorite force-powered fighters to join in the fun.

James Pitaro, president of Disney Interactive said: 

Disney Infinity is the only game where fans can play with Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars characters together in one experience. We 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.”

Several new Play Sets are coming in 3.0, including one from Marvel featuring Hulkbuster Iron Man and Ultron, and a few based on Disney & Pixar properties such as the upcoming film Inside Out. And, of course we'll be seeing the addition of new figures including but not limited to a new Mickey and Minnie, Sam Flynn and Quorra from Tron: Legacy, Mulan and Olaf. 

As for the galaxy far far away, we'll be getting three new Play Sets: Star Wars Twilight of the Republic, which features Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and Darth Maul, Star Wars: Rise Against the Empire, which features Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Darth Vader, and lastly, an unnamed Play Set coming this winter based on the upcoming film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Arguably the biggest addition to Disney Infinity 3.0, however, is the all-new 3-D Toy Box Hub, which according the announcment, "makes it easeir for players to choose from a wider selection of gameplay experiences--including platform, racing, and farming simulation games."

The Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Starter Pack will be available for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Wii U this fall at a suggested retail price of $64.99.
