WOO HOO! Today, Disney Interactive and Lucasfilm launched Star Wars Rise Against the Empire for Disney Infinity 3.o, a new Play Set that takes place during the original Star Wars trilogy. Developed by Studio Gobo and in partnership with Avalanche Software, the Play Set takes players through the wonderfully iconic moments and adventures from Episodes IV-VI!
The Star Wars Rise Against the Empire Play Set is available at a suggested retail price of $34.99 and includes the Play Set piece, also coming with two characters, being Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa. Han Solo, Chewbacca and Darth Vader figures are also now available and sold separately for a suggested retail price of $13.99. Darth Vader is my personal favorite, no question about it.
In the Star Wars Rise Against the Empire Play Set, players will embark on missions throughout the galaxy with Jedi Luke Skywalker, Rebel leader Princess Leia Organa, scruffy looking nerf herder Han Solo and his trusty co-pilot and resident wookie, Chewbacca, to help defeat Vader and overthrow the evil Galactic Empire. Players can explore open world planets Tatooine on foot or on a Bantha, take down AT-AT walkers on snowspeeders on Hoth, out race stormtroopers on speeder bikes on Endor, and partake in epic space battles in an X-wing in attempt to destroy the Death Star.
I had the chance to check out the Star Wars Rise Against the Empire Play Set. See my review here.
