Disney Interactive today released new information for Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic, one of the three Star Wars Play Sets to be released for Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition this year. Developed by Ninja Theory, in partnership with Avalanche Software, the game is set to deliver an authentic 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 a boss battle in Naboo.
