This morning, various retailers started putting up pre-orders up for the Disney Infinity 3.0 Marvel Battlegrounds Play Set, which is scheduled to release on March 15th for $29.99.
As leaked yesterday, the Marvel Battlegrounds Play Set will only include the Captain America: The First Avenger figure. The first Play Set to only include one figure, which is why it is marked down to $29.99.
Either because of that fact, to get more pre-orders, clear out more 2.0 stock, or plain out just to do something awesome to get you excited for the Play Set, Disney is offering a special pre-order bonus.
Here is John Vignocchi’s official announcement on the Play Set…
Hi there, Disney Infinity fans!
We’re just two months away from the launch of the Marvel Battlegrounds Play Set, and I’m happy to announce that, beginning today, you can pre-order the Play Set. It hits stores on March 15, and for those of you who don’t know much about Marvel Battlegrounds, I can tell you that it’s one of the most fun play sets we’ve ever made, and unlike anything we’ve ever offered.
Marvel Battlegrounds is a four-player, arcade-style brawler that allows you to battle with up to three friends locally. You get to play in 12 levels across eight all-new arenas, including Knowhere and Wakanda. You’ll also be able to battle as any playable Disney Infinity (2.0 Edition): Marvel Super Heroes figure, making Marvel Battlegrounds the Play Set with the largest selection of playable characters.
You guys know that the Disney Infinity team is always listening to your feedback, and we make changes along the way based on what we hear from the community. Your feedback has led to one significant change in our Play Set configuration. We heard from you that you want more choice in how you expand your Disney Infinity collections, especially with the Play Sets. With this in mind, the Marvel Battlegrounds Play Set Pack will come with the Play Set piece and one figure (Captain America – The First Avenger). Now it’s up to you to decide which other Marvel Super Heroes and Super Villains you want to fight with in Marvel Battlegrounds from a selection of 25 characters and with more to join the roster soon!
As a bonus, if you pre-order the Play Set today through March 14, you’ll receive a free Disney Infinity (2.0 Edition): Marvel Super Heroes figure of your choice at participating retailers in the US, while supplies last. Be on the lookout for more special deals coming soon!
Stay tuned for additional Marvel news to be announced in the coming weeks.
