Guardians of the Galaxy Play Set Coming to Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition)

The roster for Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes is going cosmic.

Marvel characters coming to Disney Infinity is an exciting concept. We've seen the Avengers playset along with the Ultimate Spider-Man line. That's not all we're going to get. Disney Interactive has announced that Guardians of the Galaxy are joining in on the fun as well.

Star-Lord will have melee combat, dual pistols, and a super-jump. Drax has his two daggers, excels at up close melee fighting, and is a wall-crawler courtesy of his daggers. Groot's limbs can extend which allows long range attacks. Gamora has her sword and will have a strong super-move. Rocket Raccoon has dual pistols, upgradable weapons and a super-move.

We were also told that more Marvel figures were coming.

Marvel’s next summer blockbuster film is coming to Disney Infinity. Today, Disney Interactive officially announced the latest Play Set for Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition) –Guardians of the Galaxy, inspired by the upcoming film Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, in theaters August 1.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Play Set follows Star-Lord and his fellow Guardians as they arrive at Knowhere, having just stolen a powerful cosmic object from the villainous Ronan the Accuser. Players will guide the team as they race to protect Knowhere from Ronan and his attacking Sakaaran fleet while keeping their newly liberated item safe from the villain’s evil grasp.

Playable characters for the Play Set include Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Drax, Gamora and Groot, as well as crossover characters Iron Man (from The Avengers Play Set) and Nova (from The Spider-Man Play Set). Mission givers will include Cosmo, The Collector and Yondu.

Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Drax, Gamora and Groot will be also playable in the all-new Toy Box 2.0, along with all characters previously released for Disney Infinity. Players will be able to use these characters, plus hundreds of Marvel and Disney-themed items, locations, props and vehicles to create new adventures in customized worlds. Additionally, the Guardians of the Galaxy characters will partake in one of the new structured Toy Box Games now offered in Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes. The Toy Box Game, called Attack on Asgard has Loki opening a series of portals that allow an army of Frost Giants to invade Odin’s Palace at Loki’s command. The Giants threaten to lay waste to Asgard, rob Odin’s Palace and ultimately grant control of the throne to Loki.

In addition, there will be Guardians of the Galaxy themed Power Discs that will enable players to customize their Play Set and Toy Box experiences. The Power Discs include:

o Space Armor - Unlock Gamora's out of this world Space Armor costume for added protection against enemies. Who says fashion can't be functional too?

o Marvel Team-Up: Yondu - Fight alongside this powerful, arrow shooting ally and send enemies running for their lives

o Groot’s Roots - Theme out your Toy Box world with Groot’s Roots. It’s sure to grow on you!

o Groot's View - Embrace your inner green thumb and theme Toy Box skies out Groot-style

o Star-Lord’s Galaxy - Turn your Toy Box into Knowhere - Star-Lord’s home base in the Galaxy

o The Rip - Turn Toy Box skies into the skies of Knowhere with this Power Disc and transport yourself to the outer edge of all space and time

The Guardians of the Galaxy Play Set will be available in retail stores this fall. Additional characters will be announced in the coming months. Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes is being developed by Avalanche Software and is rated E-10+ by the ESRB.

I've known about most of this for a while (been obsessing over this game and saving all my money for it) but am glad to see a bunch of stuff I didn't know (and a trailer to boot!!). It's gonna be a pain trying to pick out what to get first

That is a pretty great trailer

it's cool, but I am worried the way the rest of marvel media is having Ronan as an arch-villain again and that it will affect his comic storylines...I mean, he has gone through some incredible character development

Thought I'd add something cool I remembered. They're adding the kitten fists from Gravity Falls to this game as weapons. It's in the Tinkerbell and Stitch trailer, and it looks hilarious.

I like Gamora's figure the best.

This gravy train ain't de-boarding just yet!

...I'm kidding. That trailer was freaking epic.

Rocket sounds familiar...is that Nolan North?

I cracked up at the Rocket and Groot arguing at the end, lol. I can't wait to jump into Disney Infinity! It will be just like me playing Marvel Heroes all over again! :-)
