Marvel Battlegrounds for Disney Infinity 3.0 hitting Xbox and Windows 10 on March 15

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.

"We're just two months away from the launch of the Marvel Battlegrounds Play Set, and I'm happy to announce that, beginning today, you can pre-order the Play Set. It hits stores on March 15, and for those of you who don't know much about Marvel Battlegrounds, I can tell you that it's one of the most fun play sets we've ever made, and unlike anything we've ever offered.Marvel Battlegrounds is a four-player, arcade-style brawler that allows you to battle with up to three friends locally. You get to play in 12 levels across eight all-new arenas, including Knowhere and Wakanda. You'll also be able to battle as any playable "Disney Infinity (2.0 Edition): Marvel Super Heroes" figure, making Marvel Battlegrounds the Play Set with the largest selection of playable characters."

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 (opens in new tab) (with Xbox Live support) or in starter pack form for Xbox One and Xbox 360. (opens in new tab)

  • Disney Infinity 3.0 is awesome. I recommend getting it from the Windows 10 store and trying it out.
  • You mean for PC only, right?
  • Yes. It's like 20+GB or something like that in size. There are mobile versions of Infinity. But I'll end the story there.
  • Yeah... The Mobile versions aren't available for Windows 10, right? At least I couldn't find any.
  • Don't think so. Infinity Toy Box 3.0 is only on iOS and Android that I can see. There's an old version of it in the Windows Store but not for phones.
  • Here's hoping it becomes a Universal App...
  • Nah you don't want the old one. It's three versions back ;-) Disney obviously supports Windows though since the full 3.0 is in the Store. Would be good to extend that to phones. That said, the 3.0 Toy Box on my Android phone isn't a great experience, very resource intensive.
  • 14gb.
  • Where's the 'Injustice: Gods Among Us' for Windows PC and Mobile? Any word on that...
  • I so want Injustice in my life right now.
  • Basically a super smash brothers affair. I'm not too interested in this one... I find that game way too crazy.
