Why you should download the Disney Infinity: Toy Box app ahead of Infinity 2.0

Sarah Jacobsson Purewal | July 23, 2014
Until E3 2014, I had no idea what Disney Infinity really was--probably because I'm not exactly Disney's target demographic. So when I wandered over to the Disney Interactive booth during last month's gaming trade show, I was completely in the dark about how the company is helping along the whole video-game-toy-mash-up thing with its play sets, interactive figurines, and platform-agnostic gameplay.

Infinity 2.0

If you're a fan of sandbox games, the Toy Box app is plenty entertaining. But if you're looking for more action, you have to purchase pre-made campaign through the console version of the game, for now. This fall, Disney will launch Infinity 2.0, which will feature Marvel superheroes and enhanced gameplay, including new Toy Box games. 

According to Rothenberger, we'll see a big update to everything: Along with the new characters (which include Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, and Spider Man from Disney's Marvel arm and Princess Merida from Pixar's Brave), there will also be an in-game soft currency, a new creator tool for creating worlds in the Toy Box, and discs that will let you change characters' costumes. The soft currency and the built-in Toy Box games (a tower defense game and a dungeon crawler) are particularly mobile-friendly features, so the app should have even more functionality in just a few months.

You know what that means: Time to download the app and start building, so you've got a decent inventory when Infinity 2.0 comes out.
