DISNEY INFINITY 2.0 - Changes Aplenty with a Dash of Groot and Rocket Raccoon

Over the last few weeks, there have been a slew of announcements regarding Disney Infinity 2.0, including its release date of September 23rd. If you've missed a few of them, here is a handy dandy list to get you up to speed.

First we have the Guardians of the Galaxy playset, which contains Star Lord and Gamora. The playset itself features the action taking place on Knowhere, the improbable floating head space base (at least it was for a while in the books). For comic fans, hopefully this means we will get some cameos from Cosmo, because no Guardians game is complete without the awesomeness that is the telepathic Russian space dog. All 5 members of the core group will be available separately, and will feature Drax, Groot, and of course, Rocket Raccoon in addition to Star Lord and Gamora. Peep the trailer below to catch how Knowhere looks Disneyfied. 

Pretty sweet, right? The trailer also shows the antagonist of the playset, Ronan the Accuser, and shows some of the parts that will be avaialble in the toy box. 

Next up we have the collectors edition, which includes all of the Avengers, including the big green giant, Hulk. You will only get early access to Hulk through this set, as he will not release individually until later. The set also includes a snazzy glow in the dark base to display your characters on, with big evil frost giant monster in tow.  The set will retail for about $179.99, and is available for pre-order now. In addition to that, there will also be a 12GB PlayStation 3 bundle released later this year that includes the Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack, which will run $249.99. Not a bad deal at all.

Finally, we have some additional information (thanks to Polygon) about the 2.0 edition in general. There will be two new sets of power discs (20 each) released for Infinity, which include numerous powers and accessories, as well as costumes for some of the Marvel heroes. Two of those will be ship with the starter pack, and feature two self-contained adventures. The first is titled Assault on Asgard, and features their take on Tower Defense, while the second one is called Escape the Kyln, and is a procedurally generated dungeon crawler that centers around the Guardians of the Galaxy. 

With all those options and more constantly being announced, the future of Infinity is looking bright.
