E3 2015: Waging War on Hoth in ‘Star Wars: Battlefront’

DICE
DICE

Close your eyes and imagine yourself steeped in the midst of the epic battle on Hoth. Listen to the Y-Wings and TIE Fighters zoom over your head and the pings of laser fire bouncing off of the rocks behind you. Immerse yourself in that world, then open your eyes. Of course you're no longer in that epic and icy struggle, but if you were playing Star Wars Battlefront then what you saw in your mind would match what was happening on screen. The level of detail that went into reproducing this battle is enormous, and all of it pays off into what is a fantastic experience.

For lapsed Star Wars fans who have finally begun to forgive this series for its many transgressions, the new canon has been a blessing. Sure, some longtime fans were angry that years worth of novels and comics and video games were wiped away so Disney and Lucasfilm could rebuild this saga from the ground up, but this decision has resulted in a creative renaissance. Marvel’s new Star Wars comics, for example, are nothing short of exceptional and thanks to the new clean slate, the writers and artists involved are pretty much allowed to do whatever the hell they want...

The House of Mouse has finally done it: Disney Infinity 3.0 will unite Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars characters under one roof for some massive adventures.

Disney has confirmed with Game Informer that Star Wars is coming to Disney Infinity 3.0, adding our favorite faces from a galaxy far, far away to the series. Avalanche Software will be making figures and in-game adventures spanning both the original and prequel trilogies. The studio will also be signing on other developers to work on Disney Infinity 3.0's various toy packs and multi-console releases. For example, the DmC: Devil May Cry team at Ninja Theory will be making the Twilight of the Republic playset, which will star Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka in a story set between Episodes II and III. Able to interact with this set will be the Darth Maul, Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi figures (each sold separately).
