Disney Interactive Launches New Lone Ranger Play Set for Disney Infinity

Lone Ranger_1b-LDisney Interactive announced the newest play set for Disney Infinity, The Lone Ranger. Please see below links for character images, action screenshots, and a gameplay trailer showcasing both Play Set and Toy Box modes. The Lone Ranger play set pack will be available when Disney Infinity launches on August 18. Within the Lone Ranger play set, players can take on the role of the Lone Ranger or Tonto as they set out to bring Butch Cavendish and his gang of outlaws to justice.

View the gameplay trailer that showcases both Play Set and Toy Box modes below:

Key gameplay highlights include:

  • Ricochet Combat: The outlaws in the play set are clever and will seek to hide behind cover or ambush the player whenever they can. Fortunately, a unique ricochet mechanic allows both Lone Ranger and Tonto to hit the bad guys indirectly and around corners by lining up shots that bounce off of pots, pans, bells, posts, or other metal objects. 
  • Mounts: Players will find traversing the Wild West and the areas surrounding the town of Colby to be much quicker on the Lone Ranger and Tonto’s iconic steeds of Silver and Scout or any one of the other many horses that can be found throughout the play set.
  • Train Defense and Customization: He who controls the railroad, controls the West. In the Lone Ranger play set, players can build and customize their own train from the trim on the wheels to the painting on the cars. A key part of the gameplay revolves around building up the train and getting the right resources to the right locations. 
  • Toy Box: In addition to these game mechanics, the Lone Ranger play set also allows players to bring in all the buildings, mounts, weapons and other surprises into the Toy Box so that players can include their own wild west gameplay into their imaginative scenarios.
