Disney interactive has officially unveiled Disney Infinity 3.0: Star Wars, the next installment of the developer’s popular cross-franchise toys-to-life video game series developed by Avalanche Software.
The game covers the next issue of Game Informer magazine, as seen below:
A behind-the-scenes trailer was also released, revealing what’s going into the production of the new game. If you look closely you can also see some new Disney and Marvel figures, including a Hulkbuster Iron Man.
The game will try to cater to all Star Wars fans by offering a variety of content packs, featuring a variety of character going on different adventures telling stories set in different eras of the Star Wars saga. Separate packs will be developed by different teams in order to showcase what each individual studio does best within the Star Wars universe.
Ninja Theory’s “Twilight of the Republic” will follow Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano as they investigate who is behind a newly built droid army. The story is set after Attack of the Clones, and features a lot of melee combat. Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and Darth Maul can be added to the adventure via separately sold figures.
Studio Gobo’s “Rise Against the Empire” allows players to play though classic moments from the original Star Wars Trilogy, including the Battle of Yavin, and spend some time on Hoth and Tatooine. The story primarily features Luke and Leia going up against Darth Vader, but Chewbacca, Han Solo, and a playable Darth Vader can be added through figures sold separately.
A third playset, based on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is planned for release this winter.
Disney Infinity 3.0 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, iOS, and Android this fall.
