Disney Infinity is all about Star Wars with version 3.0 and although fans will have a short wait to get their hands on the Rise Against The Empire playset, we think it’ll be worth it. Of course if you’re lucky enough to be able to pick up the Special Edition Playstation version, you’ll be able to play this from launch and merrily gloat at the the rest of us.
As you can see from the video, each level provides a wide variety of missions, some of which include the use of vehicles. As we’re on Endor, the preferred mode of transport is the Speeder Bike, which we get to tear around the forest in as we look to pass through a number of gates dotted around the map. It hearkens back to Return of the Jedi and it’s hard not to feel nostalgic.
We have a look at the new Marvel figures for Disney Infinity 3.0, Hulkbuster and Ultron. In the toy box we see a full set of their moves with all upgrades applied.
We also hear about the Marvel play set for Disney Infinity 3.0, rumoured to be Ant Man centric. While Disney confirm its existence they didn’t elaborate on content.
With less than a month until the release of Disney Infinity 3.0. The game has been doing the rounds at Gamescom and we’ve been fortunate enough to get hands on with the Rise Against The Empire playset. In our previous videos from E3, you’ll have seen us explore Hoth, but this time, we get to take a look around the forest world of Endor, primary setting for Return Of The Jedi.
In this first video from the show floor, we’re sent on a mission by Lando Calrissian to try and locate a Speeder Bike. It looks like it’s being guarded by some of the empire’s forces, including a few Stormtroopers, so we’ll have to have our wits about us and use the force to get through…although our Lightsaber should come in handy too.
We take a look at the different route to owning Disney Infinity 3.0.
At launch you can only play the classic Episodes IV-VI (Rise Against the Empire Play Set) adventures if you purchase the $114.99 Star Wars Saga Bundle exclusively on PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4. Also this is the only route to access the Boba Fett figurine and character.
In the UK players with a Disney Infinity 1.0 or 2.0 Starter Pack can purchase just the Disney Infinity 3.0 Video Game disc, and then add either the Twilight of the Republic Play Set or Inside Out Play Set separately and use the base they already own.
In the US there is a Digital Download version of the game that will be available at launch, as confirmed by VP of Production on Disney Infinity John Vignocchi on Twitter. It’s worth noting this because currently it is not listed on Console online stores. Also, as there is no physical version in the US it’s not visible at retail.
The official Disney Infinity page for the UK makes sure that families are aware of the game-only option, stating “Do you already own a previous Disney Infinity Starter Pack? Then the 3.0 Video Game Software Disc with Twilight of the Republic Play set Bundle might be an option for you.” However the page in the US has no mention of a game-only option.
Disney Infinity 3.0 offers great value for families this year, not least with a lower overall price point, no more blind packs and better cross-over features on the Star Wars characters. A bit of research around the points I outline here is still important to identify the right route to purchase.
We have a look at the different sculpts on show at E3 this as the game producer talks us through the process.
Along the way we see the preliminary and final design for Hulkbuster.

We have a look at the new Marvel characters for Disney Infinity from the Age of Ultron movie. Hulk Buster and Ultron. In fact these are so new that the E3 samples were 3D printed still.
We take a run through of all the power discs available for Star Wars play-sets in Disney Infinity 3.0. Along with the terrain and sky-dome themes we home in on costume swap for Luke and Leia.
Available on the Disney Infinity booth were a set of Star Wars power discs that apply themes and textures to toy box creations. Most interesting here are some costume swap discs that change the appearance of specific characters. Luke gets his X-Wing Pilot’s Suit costume while Leia gets her bounty hunter disguise.
We visit the Disney Infinity booth at E3. The Twilight of the Republic level on show let you play as Boba Fett fighting your way through a Droid factory. This offer the opportunity to try out both shooting and light saber combat — each of which benefit from Ninja Theory’s input into the game this year. Here we also get a chance to tour the new Upgrade Trees which have a fresh layout for easier navigation between ability types.
