New Disney Infinity 2.0 Avengers Trailer Reveals Loki's Plans

In the lead up to hands-on opportunities with the game at E3 Disney have released a new trailer for the Disney Infinity Avengers Play Set. This expands on the announcement trailer for Disney Infinity that also had a Marvel Super Heroes theme but without focusing on on particular franchise.

In the trailer we get to hear more narration about the Avengers campaign which appears to be set in a New York city that has been frozen by Loki. Buildings and streets are covered with ice and frozen monsters rampage around causing havoc. Then, as the camera draws back we see that it is in fact the whole world that is slowly being shrouded in a layer of ice.

It then runs through the different characters you will be able to play in the Play Set, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Captain America before taking us to the Disney Infinity Avengers Toy Box where this set of characters is seen playing together.

It’s a set-up that will expand interest of Disney Infinity beyond the usual younger Skylanders market and attract interest from older players as well as fans of the comics and movies. Perhaps to offset this more exuberant, high impact trailer at the end there is a comedy moment with Hulk parking his car in unconventional style and then locking it.

The trailer certainly appealed to my kids, with my daughter still excited about the female Avenger Black Widow and the boys finding the Hulk’s comedic moments hysterical — insisting on watching it over and over again.

While this gives us a taste of what we will be seeing at E3 next month, it also seems likely that there will be more than this one play set on show as well. I suspect we will get hands on with other non-Marvel play sets as that will be important to underline the broad reach of the game for families.

Also I’m hoping for more clarification on upgrade paths for the game, whether you will be able to purchase it as downloadable content in its own right as well as a boxed version. This would provide a nice upgrade path for Wii owners of the first game who could potentially use their existing Infinity Base and characters on the Wii U by purchasing the new game via the eShop.

Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes starter packs will be available in the fall on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, iOS.
