Have you or your children ever dreamed up playing a game that featured Spiderman and Mr. Incredible working together? With the makings for an epic movie down the road, Disney Infinity 2.0 will bring together the Marvel Universe and the Disney Universe into a custom, community sharing setup. The game itself will focus on strictly the Marvel characters, as it will take place in an open world New York City. As for playing alongside each other, Infinity 2.0 brings the Toy Box to the forefront which allows users to build worlds with enemies and bring together characters from both sides.
"Where all the characters mix is inside the toy box. When you’re playing through an experience like Spiderman and The Avengers the playset, it’s an exclusive property experience, a 7 or 8 hour piece of gameplay, and is written just for that product. Spiderman just uses the Spiderman characters and same with the Avengers. But in the Toybox, it’s like playing on your parent’s living room floor, you have all your toys out, everyone is playing together."
-Ryan Rothenburger, Senior Producer
What's even more important with the Toy Box in Disney Infinity 2.0 is the community support. With the last game, Disney would feature the five best user created Toy Box's for that week. Now, they will be sorting through much more and approving one hundred per day, which will lead to a thousand different areas to be downloaded for free after the initial month of release. The game will also support direct friend sharing. This content does not need to be approved since it's considered private. Friends can download and modify contents of your Toy Box so Spiderman and Mr. Incredible can team up and take down waves of enemies in a world that you created.
Disney Infinity 2.0 will be available across the board on all platforms. It will hit Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PC, and iOS. The Wii U will support designing your Toy Box with the touch controls from the tablet. The PC and iOS versions will be available for free, and all content including figures will be digital. Lastly, all content for the Toy Box across the board is console agnostic, meaning your saves can be downloaded on different consoles via the cloud.
