'Star Wars': Visit Jakku 'Disney Infinity' Style With New Concept Art (Exclusive)
This Friday, the Force won't only awaken in theaters — Disney Infinity users will also get to travel further into a galaxy far, far away with the release of a Star Wars: The Force Awakens playset adding characters and locations from the new movie to the multi-franchise game.
Ahead of the new playset's release, The Hollywood Reporter has an exclusive look at concept art and the finished design for Jakku, one of the new locations that will be available in the game.
The desert planet that acts as home to The Force Awakens' Rey — and was also the site of a massive battle between Imperial and Rebel forces following Return of the Jedi — the official Infinity description of Jakku adds that, "the local economy is based on salvaging old parts from derelict ships. The players will spend their time on Jakku salvaging in order to gain credits and help the locals fix up the area. All along the way, the players will unlock new vehicles and toys for the Toy Box."
Rey is one of a number of newly playable characters in The Force Awakens playset, alongside Finn, Poe Dameron and Kylo Ren. (The latter two will only be available via purchase of separate figures; Rey and Finn will be packaged with the playset.)
The Star Wars: The Force Awakens playset will be available at a SRP of $34.99 on Dec. 18.
