We're really excited for the upcoming Disney Infinity 3.0 release with the focus on the Star Wars universe. The gameplay and figures will feature both trilogies and the new movie with three Star Wars playsets.

The first, Twilight of the Republic, will center on the Clone Wars era. We'll get to explore Tatooine and Coruscant, fight droids on Geonosis, and have a big boss battle on Naboo.

Here's the press release with the new information.

Developed by Ninja Theory, in partnership with Avalanche Software, the game is set to deliver an authentic family-friendly Star Wars game experience with enhanced combat system.

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.

Was actually thinking about picking up the 2.0 marvel starter pack this weekend. Can you play coop on all of the story modes?

@xtremeguardian: Thanks. Would you recommend buying 2.0? I have Batman Lego 3 and Marvel Lego and enjoyed them

@asjmooney: I highly recommend it. We've posted a few different write ups on the different figures. Some of the gameplay gets repetitive but it's cool having the variety of characters. My daughter and I have played for hours. You can create your own levels as well or download minigames created by the community. So once you finish the actual game levels, you can still find more to do and areas you can mix the Marvel and Disney characters together.

@g_man: Awesome. I'm sold. Going to get the Marvel starter set and GotG playset on Friday.

I've heard you talking about it loads on the podcast and that's what initially peaked my interest.

Now to decide what additional characters to buy...

@asjmooney: I would definitely recommend also getting the Spider-man play set. Easily my favorite playset out of all of them. Even if you're not a spidey fan they nailed the web swinging from rooftops.

If only they could up this game to local 4 player co-op. It's a little bit of a stinker switching out every 20 or so minute with my boys. Would be nice to all play at once.

I'm mostly excited for the original trilogy stuff, but I'm still going to be getting all of these Star Wars figures.
