Although it had already been announced (and confirmed our initial reports), Disney Interactive today noted that at launch, ‘Disney Infinity’ will have a Cars play set available to purchase. This makes Cars the fourth officially announced play set (along with Monsters University, Pirates of the Caribbean and The Incredibles) and the first add-on pack.
As we reported (and confirmed) yesterday, the Cars play set allows gamers to take on the role of Lightning McQueen, Mater, Holley Shiftwell and Francesco Bernoulli and enter the virtual world of Radiator Springs, where they will prepare the town for a big international racing event.
Key highlights of the play set add-on include:
- Racing and Customization: players will be able to race through town on full sized tracks and pull off amazing, gravity defying feats in a no-holds-barred stunt park. Additionally, players can customize the town, exploring the outskirts of the city and towing all types of vehicles to make way for tourists.
- Play Set: The Cars play set adds driving/racing play mechanics and track pieces to the Toy Box allowing players to create all-new racing challenges, build and customize tracks and much more.
- Toy Box mode: Lightning, Mater, Holley and Francesco are able to interact with all of the previously revealed characters from The Incredibles, Monsters University and Pirates of the Caribbean.
