First announced in Game Informer magazine, Cars will join The Incredibles, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Monsters University as available play sets for the upcoming Disney Infinity video game.
The Cars play set will follow the events of Cars 2 and take place in Radiator Springs. Players can choose to play as Lightning McQueen, Mater, Holley Shiftwell, or Francesco Bernoulli in special missions unique to each character. Players will be asked to attract other racers to Radiator Springs by building new tracks and hosting international racing tournaments. As of now, it is unclear whether more Cars characters will be made available for game play.
The addition of Cars to the available play sets on Disney Infinity adds new elements to the game’s Toy Box mode, such as track pieces and buildings. According to Game Informer magazine, “When they’re inevitably blown up, the destroyed pieces essentially become stunt-park pieces, which players can trick off of.”
More play sets based on Disney Pixar properties will be revealed before the game’s June release. Each play set will grant users another 6-9 hours of game play in another Disney Pixar game world.
