In addition to a dedicated playset in Disney Infinity, Marvel is spreading Guardians of the Galaxy content across a handful of its other games, including Marvel Heroes and its social and mobile games, the company announced during a panel at San Diego Comic-Con today.

(Update:) Additionally, in a surprise announcement, Marvel said a playable Green Goblin, Loki and more would join Disney Infinity 2.0 in a special Marvel Villains figurine set. The trailer for that set will be released on Monday. Villains had been seen in the original trailer announcing Marvel would join Disney Infinity's lineup, this confirms them as a separate set.

Just in time for the launch of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy film in theaters on Aug. 1, free-to-play MMO Marvel Heroes 2015 will allow players to join forces with Star-Lord, Drax, Gamora, Rocket and Groot — in addition to a bevy of other heroes from Marvel's canon. Facebook social title Marvel: Avengers Alliance will also introduce a new Spec op mission by lead writer Alex Irvine focused on the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy.

Additionally, mobile game Marvel: War of Heroes will get a special raid boss event in September in which players can use the Guardians of the Galaxy characters, and the full team and their adversary Ronan the Accuser will be available alongside a new multi-ball table in all versions of Marvel Pinball. Finally, both Minecraft on Xbox and Xbox Live are getting Guardians of the Galaxy costume content, with skins and avatar outfits available within both games in the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions.
