Marvel Battlegrounds offers a huge line up of characters for you to do battle with inside the playset. 28 new and existing Marvel figures are all compatible with Battlegrounds, something never done before in Disney Infinity. But they didn’t stop there, they also added support for 2.0 power discs as well!
In Marvel Battlegrounds the round red Marvel power discs from 2.0 were given a major overhaul adding new and unique animations, powers and abilities in side each arena battle.
Prior to starting the match, after selecting your characters, players are given the option to load up to six power discs into the game to be used during battle.
Once in battle, the power discs will randomly appear in the arena for anyone to pick up. Your character will hold onto the power disc allowing it to charge UNLESS they receive damage. If your character is damaged, it will drop the power disc (and what ever charge it has) allowing anyone else to pick it up.
Power discs take approximately 3 seconds to fully charge, and when activated trigger a special animation. For Captain America’s costume change disc, Sentinel Of Liberty, we see vintage Cap appear in the lower corner of the screen signaling the disc was activated. For Darkhawk’s disc, his animation is combined with the special area of effect attack.
Costume change discs appear to offer stat buffers to the player, giving him a boost in one or more of their stats such as defense, strength, attack, ect… activating the discs ads a special animation to the character, small symbols that circle the fighter while the buff is still active. Some costume change discs can even cause damage to near by characters with an attack buff.
Attack power discs like team-ups and special abilities (Infinity Gauntlet, Doctor Strange, ect..) will trigger a down screen animation that shows the attack on the arena be in a specific target attack or a large area of effect.
