As we approach the halfway mark of the year, 2015 is looking like a fantastic year for media, with the best titles yet to come. When it comes to games, one of the biggest on my most-anticipated list is the Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition… aka the STAR WARS edition. Today comes a fresh look at one of the three STAR WARS Play Sets to be released for the game this year, STAR WARS: TWILIGHT OF THE REPUBLIC. Developed by Ninja Theory, in partnership with Avalanche Software, the game is set to deliver “an authentic family-friendly STAR WARS game experience with an enhanced combat system.”
About the Play Set: Set during the latter years of the Clone Wars, players will travel to four locations and explore open worlds of Tatooine and Coruscant, battle droids in Geonosis and partake in an epic boss battle in Naboo. Along the way, players will use the Force™and master their Lightsaber™ skills as they fight alongside Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda to save the Republic and defeat the Separatists.
Each Jedi character is given specialized Force combat abilities and Force finishing moves, as well as unique Lightsaber forms with powerful combo attacks. As Jedi Master Yoda, for example, players will leap into action with his agile and acrobatic prowess. Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano uses her lightning-fast dual Lightsabers to carve up Battledroids, while Darth Maul uses his double-bladed Lightsaber and power in the dark side of the Force in a death-defying duel against the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The STAR WARS: TWILIGHT OF THE REPUBLIC Play Set is included in the Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Starter Pack available this fall for $64.99, which also includes the Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Base, Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker character figures, and a web code card that unlocks content for PC and mobile devices. The game is rated E10+ by the ESRB and will be available this fall.
Two additional STAR WARS Play Sets will be available for Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition this holiday, including STAR WARS: RISE AGAINST THE EMPIRE and STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. In addition, players will be able to unlock the ability for all STAR WARS characters to play inside all of the Star Wars Play Sets, as well as in the newly enhanced Toy Box, along with all characters previously released for Disney Infinity.
