Disney Interactive has revealed details surrounding Marvel Battlegrounds, its upcoming Play Set for Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition, which includes what figures will be featured, its release date, and more.
Marvel Battlegrounds will feature a four-player, arcade brawler style of gameplay and its own original Marvel storyline. Hulkbuster, Ultron, and Captain America - The First Avenger will be featured in the Marvel Battlegrounds Play Set. Captain America - The First Avenger will be a new version of Captain America that has a new pose, costume, and enhanced abilities. Additional Marvel Battlegrounds figures will be announced in the coming months.
Marvel Battlegrounds will fully support all Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition Marvel figures and will feature adapted abilities and skills that will help compliment the new style of gameplay available in this Play Set.
Disney Interactive has also revealed the original storyline for Marvel Battlegrounds will have Ultron and Loki teaming up in an effort to steal Asgard’s Infinity Stone. In order to accomplish this, they create robotic replicas of Marvel Super Heroes to turn them against each other as a way to distract the Heroes while Ultron and Loki commit their crime. Players will fight as the Marvel Super Heroes across a number of iconic environments that include a wrecked Brooklyn train yard, Wakanda, S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Lunar Base, and finally, a battle against Ultron himself.
