The popular cross-platform game, Disney Infinity 3.0, is getting a new play set expansion on March 15 from the Marvel universe. Snippets of information have been available for some time but in an announcement today, VP of Production for Disney Infinity, John Vignocchi, announced the launch date, price and details on the set you'll be buying. And pre-orders start immediately at selected retailers. In Europe it looks like a March 25 release.
The play set will, as ever, be a buy once use on any supported platform affair. Whether you're playing on Xbox 360, Xbox One, Windows 10, Steam, PlayStation, Wii U or the Apple TV, the figures and play set piece will be compatible. PC players will need to cash in the web codes to claim, since there's no physical base included. In the U.S. the new set will cost $29.99, a slight reduction on regular Infinity prices but you also only get one figurine. Pre-orders in the U.S. until March 14 at some retailers will include a free Marvel figure from the 2.0 release to use in the game.
While Marvel Battlegrounds will be compatible with any Marvel characters from the 2.0 and 3.0 versions of the game, included in the price is the brand new version of Captain America. Fashioned around the Captain America seen in the Civil War movie. But what actually is it? Unlike most other Infinity play sets, Battlegrounds is a combat based multiplayer experience. So far, Disney is only referring to local multiplayer, but something like this is obviously set up for online action. But Disney has mostly kept its cards close to its chest thus far.
If this sounds like something for you, you'll find pre-order links below. If you're yet to dive into Disney Infinity 3.0 you can grab the base game for free on Windows 10 (with Xbox Live support) or in starter pack form for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
