However, Disney Infinity sets itself apart by featuring a massive open-world environment that players can explore and play with, creating their own unique content such.
The game is being developed by Avalanche Software, the same studio that developed the exceptional Toy Story 3 video game. Building on the foundation laid down by their previous game, which featured an open-world and quest-based gameplay, Avalanche is looking to give players even more freedom. To explore the world. the game will feature over 30 collectible figures, as well as a variety of power-up tokens which will give each character their own unique abilities.
