Disney Infinity is an upcoming video game from Disney Interactive Studios to be released on August 18, 2013, in North America and August 20, 2013, in Europe. Similar to Skylanders, the game uses collectible figurines that are then synthesized within the game, allowing for characters from Disney and Pixar properties to interact and go on adventures.
Infinity Base and figurines
The Starter Pack edition of the game is bundled with three figurines and an Infinity Base. The Infinity Base has two round spots to place figurines, and a hexagonal spot to place world discs. When the figurines are placed on the Infinity Base, the characters are imported into the game, while world discs unlock Play Sets. Standard figurines will be priced at $11.99 depending on specific retailers. 
There are two main modes in this game, Play Set and Toy Box. Each play set is essentially a self-contained world with its own gameplay, based on a specific movie or series with recognizable characters and storylines. Characters from one world cannot enter into another world, but players can put any character together in Toy Box mode. Toy Box is a sandbox mode that players can fully customize and explore.
Characters can be powered up via the use of up to 4 different Power Discs at a time, including increasing your health by 20%, increasing your wealth 10% faster, receiving 10% less damage and inflicting 10% more damage.
Power Discs can also change the terrain and theme of your Toy Box mode via 8 different discs from Tangled, Wreck-it-Ralph, Finding Nemo, Alice in Wonderland & The Nightmare Before Christmas, Frankenweenie.
There are 8 different vehicles that can be accessed via Power Discs from Up, Lilo & Stitch, Cinderella, Toy Story, Peter Pan, Dumbo, Mulan and Mickey Mouse.
Power Discs are an add-on sold via Blind Bags. There are 2 Power Discs in each pack, which will retails for $4.99 (USA) & £3.99 (UK). As they are sold in Blind Bags, you will not know which Discs are contained in each pack.
The Starter Pack includes 1 Power Disc.
Toy Box Mode
Toy Box mode allows players to create their own game, an open-world arena which is full of endless possibilities, you can mix and match everything that you unlock within each of your playsets including characters, weapons, gadgets and much more. By unlocking new content in the Disney Infinity playsets you are able to make your own adventures, build your own worlds and create your own game.
Play Set Mode
There are a number of play sets available which are accessed via placing the relevant play set piece onto the Inifinity Base. Each play set is specific to a Disney/Pixar theme and only characters from that theme are able to play in that playset, so Mr Incredible can not play along with Woody in the Toy Story playset.

- Pirates of the Caribbean, included in Starter Pack
- The Incredibles, included in Starter Pack
