Guardians of the Galaxy Play Set Announced For Disney Infinity 2.0

Disney and Marvel have revealed the third Super Hero themed Play Set for Disney Infinity 2.0.  The Guardians of the Galaxy Play Set will launch this fall with five playable characters.

Star Lord, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, Drax, and Groot are all included in the Play Set.  Iron Man (from The Avengers Play Set) and Nova (from the Spider-Man Play Set) are playable in the Play Set’s campaign after collection 10 tokens with the Guardians of the Galaxy characters.  In the campaign, the Guardians have stolen a cosmic artifact from Ronan the Accuser, and he is not happy about it.  He follows them to Knowhere and sets his minions upon them.  It’s up to our heroes to survive Ronan’s horde and escape with the artifact.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Play Set comes hot on the heels of the live-action adaptation that hits movie theaters August 1.  Disney has confirmed that the campaign of the Play Set will not follow the events of the film, though the characters in-game appearances are modeled after the film characters.

Disney Infinity 2.0 is out September 23 on PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U.  A PS Vita version will be released in 2015.
