Studio Gobo's Tom Williams talks Disney Infinity 'Rise Against the Empire' Play Set

Disney Infinity is hoping to re-create the atmosphere of the original Star Wars trilogy with the upcoming Rise Against the Empire Play Set. To learn more about it, Shacknews spoke to Studio Gobo studio director Tom Williams.


Last week, Shacknews had the chance to go hands-on with one of the several new Play Sets set to come to Disney Infinity 3.0. The Rise Against the Empire Play Set will return to the world of the original Star Wars trilogy and Shacknews recently had a chance to talk to Studio Gobo studio director Tom Williams about the project.

Williams discusses the Play Set's multiplayer game modes, which doesn't just extend to the story, but also extends to players taking control of vehicles like the AT-ATs on Hoth. He also talks about the game's vehicles, flight stages, the Death Star, working with Ninja Theory, and re-enacting the greatest scenes from the original trilogy.

Be sure to check out the full interview below. The Star Wars 'Rise Against the Empire' Play set will release alongside Disney Infinity 3.0 this fall.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
