In case you missed it, you’ll be able to play with a whole bunch of the Disney Infinity 2.0 Toy Box bells and whistles without actually buying a new Starter Pack, or any new figures. The teams at Disney and Avalanche are giving gamers the option to download Toy Box 2.0 directly onto your PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 or Wii U, and use your original Disney Infinity base and toy collection with the all-new system.
This all kicks off on November 4th – the same date that the Disney Infinity 2.0 Play Sets are made available for individual purchase. That means you’ll get your hands on the new Toy Box at the same time as the new characters (including Disney Originals like Donald Duck), which Disney Infinity executive producer John Vignocchi feels is “the best timing for the a la carte consumer.”
What does this mean for parents and gamers? It means the ability to pick and choose whatever combination of figures and Play Sets their heart desires and endless possibilities in how they want to play Disney Infinity. For example, if players own the first edition but are only interested in Toy Box 2.0 and adding Rocket Raccoon and Stitch to their collection, the digital download would be for them!
The studio expects that “most people” will pick up one of the Starter Packs to play through the Disney Infinity 2.0 experience, but it was important for them to keep the “infinite” as a core part of the game. This new Toy Box 2.0 solution provides fans with a wider set of options, hopefully keeping people happy.
Disney Infinity 2.0 hits shelves this week for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, Wii U and PC, with an iOS version also available.
