Scheduled for release in March 2016, the Marvel Battlegrounds Play Set for Disney Infinity 3.0 features a new four-player, arcade brawler style of gameplay, and an original Marvel storyline.
Developed by United Front Games and Avalanche Software, Marvel Battlegrounds features the widest selection of playable characters of any previous Play Set, while also allowing for full compatibility with all Disney Infinity Marvel characters.
Here’s what Disney says about the Marvel Battlegrounds Play Set:
Launching in March 2016, Marvel Battlegrounds will feature Hulkbuster, Ultron, and Captain America – The First Avenger, a new version of Captain America with a new pose, costume, and enhanced abilities. Additional Marvel Battlegrounds figures will be announced in the coming months. All Disney Infinity (2.0 Edition) Marvel figures will be playable in the Play Set and will feature adapted abilities and skills to complement the new style of gameplay of Marvel Battlegrounds.
In the original storyline, Ultron teams up with Loki in an effort to steal Asgard’s immensely powerful Infinity Stone. To accomplish this, Ultron and Loki create robotic replicas of the famed Marvel Super Heroes and turn them against each other in an effort to distract them while they commit their crime. The Marvel Super Heroes duplicates battle each other in iconic environments such as a wrecked Brooklyn train yard, Wakanda and S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Lunar Base, culminating in a universe-shaking battle against Ultron.
The video description adds, “Battle up to 3 opponents in the arena with 4-person local multiplayer. Customize your game with up to six Round Marvel Power Discs per match. Select Super Heroes and Villains from your ENTIRE collection of Marvel characters in Disney Infinity.”
