Disney Infinity to feature play set based on Pixar's Cars

Disney Infinity's Cars Play Set, which will bring characters and settings from the Pixar franchise to the game, will be revealed in the March 2013 issue of Game Informer, according to a report published in VideoGamer.

The Cars expansion will allow players to build racetracks and host tournaments and include characters like Lightning McQueen and Mater, who've appeared in previous promotional materials for the game. Events in the Play Set will take place in the home of many of those characters, Radiator Springs, set sometime after the events of Cars 2. According to the report, in Toy Box mode players can destroy set pieces and use them to perform tricks off of.

Disney announced Infinity, a Skylanders-like hybrid between physical toys and video games, at an event in January. Set to launch in June on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Wii, Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, with mobile and other platforms to follow, Disney already revealed characters from The Incredibles, Monsters University, Pirates of the Caribbean and more.
