'Disney Infinity 3.0': 'Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic' Images, Details Released
Disney has released details about Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic, the first Star Wars addition to its Disney Infinity video game series, teasing fans with the chance to enter the world of the prequel trilogy and Clone Wars television series.
Twilight, which takes place during the latter part of the Clone Wars, features the twin settings of Tatooine and Coruscant, with players being given the chance to play as Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda and Star Wars: The Clone Wars (and Star Wars: Rebels) character Ahsoka Tano, each with their own distinctive moves. (Darth Maul, the distinctive Sith from Star Wars: Episode I, will also be a playable character.)
Other locations available in the game include Geonosis — home of factories producing the many droid warriors of the Separatists — and Naboo, which will play host to what Disney is describing as "an epic boss battle."
The Twilight of the Republic play set included in the Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Starter Pack will include Ahsoka and Anakin figures, in addition to a web code card to unlock content for PC and mobile devices. Other figures will be available separately. Twilight is one of three announced Star Wars play sets, with the others being Star Wars: Rise Against the Empire, set during the original trilogy, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which, as the name suggests, takes place during this holiday season's new movie.
Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic and Star Wars: Rise Against the Empire will both be released this fall.
