In LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, the Caped Crusader joins forces with the super heroes of the DC Comics universe and blasts off to outer space to stop the evil Brainiac from destroying Earth. Using the power of the Lantern Rings, Brainiac shrinks worlds to add to his twisted collection of miniature cities from across the universe and the greatest Super Heroes and most cunning Super Villains must unite and journey to different Lantern Worlds to stop him.

Players will unlock and play as more than 150 characters, including members of the Justice League and the Legion of Doom, as well as LEGO big figures such as Arkillo, Atrocitus and many more, each with their own gadgets and abilities. In LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham players will explore iconic locations such as the Hall of Justice, the Batcave and the Justice League Watchtower, as well as visit and freely explore various Lantern planets like Odym, Zamaron and Okaara.

The game also features star-studded appearances by Conan O’Brien and Kevin Smith as themselves and Stephen Amell, star of the hit TV series Arrow, as Green Arrow.

In addition to the wealth of new environments, characters and features in the game, LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham also marks another first for the LEGO videogame franchise – a Season Pass. The Season Pass will include six downloadable packs, each with a uniquely themed mission level with story and free play modes. Players will be able to unlock more than 40 characters, vehicles, achievements and more.  Three add-on content packs will be available at launch: The Dark Knight, Man of Steel and Batman 75th (a great chance for kids and parents to celebrate Batman’s 75th Anniversary). Players who can’t get enough of the game can also look forward to more add-on content, including the Arrow pack and two others, to be released at a later date.

Disney Infinity 2.0 This Game IS A Must Have For Your Family! @DisneyInteractive #DisneyInfinity #Disney #HolidayGiftGuide

Disney Infinity 2.0 
This Game IS A Must Have For Your Family

Looking for a game that will entertain the entire family? Looking for the perfect answer to family gaming night? We have found the perfect answer just for you! Of course I would know this because we are a Disney Infinity Family! We love the game and it just keeps on getting better! It’s like a dream come true that just keeps on going! Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition: Marvel Super Heroes is a major hit! The game, which recently released on Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Wii U, iOS, and Microsoft Windows,  is a perfect follow-up to last year’s Disney Infinity, building on all of the first game’s great features to create something bigger and better than Disney Infinity fans could have ever imagined!

Disney Infinity 2.0’s first major stride is that it introduces characters from popular Marvel franchises like Spider-Man, The Avengers, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Never before has a video game allowed kids to play with heroes like Iron Man and Rocket Raccoon alongside classic Disney characters like Donald Duck and Tinker Bell (both also new for this game)– it’s an awesome plus to 2.0’s improved Toy Box mode.

Also new for the Toy Box of Disney Infinity 2.0 is the ability to design interiors and connect toy boxes with doors. Using these two new features, players essentially gain limitless building space for their toy boxes, and can customize their play area inside and out! Featuring hundreds of new items and the potential to save up to 100,000 individual toy boxes, Toy Box Mode is more lively than ever in Disney Infinity 2.0!

Of course, Disney Infinity 2.0 doesn’t only feature new items in-game. A slew of new power discs have been released (and more are on the way!) to incorporate new toy box themes, vehicles, weapons, costumes, and the newly added team-ups. Team-up discs let players call in ally characters like White Tiger, Ant-Man, and the Winter Soldier to fight enemies alongside them. And power discs aren’t all, either! Disney Infinity 2.0 boasts the addition of 30 new characters (and two that are still to be announced!) from both the Marvel Super Heroes stable and the Disney Originals lineup, putting the Disney Infinity roster at more than 50 playable characters overall!

Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition: Marvel Super Heroes is a blast to play for Disney, Marvel, and video game fans of all ages– it’s a huge hit in our house, that’s for sure! My oldest son loves playing the campaign-driven play sets and building challenges in Toy Box, while my middle son is enamored with the level of detail he can put into interior environments thanks to the new items and design options… and my daughter (the youngest) just has a great time running around in the Toy Box and exploring her brothers’ creations– while adding a few of her own sometimes too!
