Disney have today revealed details for Marvel Battlegrounds, the upcoming Play Set for Disney Infinity 3.0, featuring a new four-player, arcade brawler style of gameplay, and an original Marvel storyline.

Developed by United Front Games, in partnership with Avalanche Software, Marvel Battlegrounds is the first Disney Infinity Play Set to feature four-player gameplay, and features full compatibility for all Disney Infinity Marvel characters, giving this game the widest selection of playable characters of any previous 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) 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.






Fans can get a more in-depth look at the Play Set during the Disney Infinity 3.0 Play Without Limits: Facing Off in Marvel’s Battlegrounds panel at New York Comic-Con on Saturday 10th October from 4:00 – 4:45 p.m. (EST) at Empire Stage 1-E.
