Disney Infinity is about to have a lot more talking Raccoon action.
Disney Interactive has announced that the new game Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes will be getting a special Guardians of the Galaxy Play Set, based on the movie versions of the out-of-this-world heroes. All five Guardians (Rocket Raccoon, Star-Lord, Drax, Gamora, and Groot) will be playable, along with crossover characters like Iron Man and Nova. As with all the other Disney Infinity Play Sets, you’ll be able to use all the characters and items with everything else in the game’s Toy Box.
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.
Guardians of the Galaxy will land in theatres on August 1. Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes will launch this fall, with the Guardians Play Set sold separately.
