At San Diego Comic-Con, Disney Interactive today announced the next chapter in its upcoming ‘Disney Infinity Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition)’ — the Guardians of the Galaxy play set, inspired by the Marvel film of the same name, in theaters on August 1, 2014.
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.
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:
- 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?
- Marvel Team-Up: Yondu – Fight alongside this powerful, arrow shooting ally and send enemies running for their lives
- Groot’s Roots – Theme out your Toy Box world with Groot’s Roots. It’s sure to grow on you!
