Named at D23 Expo, Disney Interactive has today revealed more details surrounding the Marvel Battlegrounds Play Set bound for Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition in March 2016.
Developed by United Front Games in tandem with Avalanche Software, it will boast an original Marvel storyline and introduce a “new four-player, arcade brawler style of gameplay” – making it the first Play Set to support four-player gameplay.
The storyline will see Ultron team up with Loki to steal Asgard’s Infinity Stone, achieved by creating robotic replicas of the Marvel Super Heroes in an effort to distract the team by turning them against each other. Locations recreated in-game include a wrecked Brooklyn train yard, Wakanda and S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Lunar Base, with the Play Set culminating in a universe-shaking battle against Ultron.
Compatibile with all Disney Infinity Marvel characters, Marvel Battlegrounds supports the widest selection of playable characters in a Play Set – including the new Hulkbuster, Ultron and Captain America – The First Avenger figures with more to be announced.
Whereas all Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition Marvel figures will have adapted abilities and skills that will “complement the new style of gameplay” in Marvel Battlegrounds.
“With Disney Infinity 3.0, we’ve aimed to provide a wider variety of gameplay than ever before, and the Marvel Battlegrounds Play Set represents our commitment to developing something entirely new for our players,” comments Disney Infinity’s senior vice president and general manager John Blackburn. “The four-player arena style combat gameplay is a perfect way for friends and families to come together and play in head-to-head battles with some of their favorite Marvel characters.”
Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition – Marvel Battlegrounds Play Set will release in March 2016.
