Seems like the Disney Infinity Toy Box is about to get even more crammed with the addition of the Lone Ranger Playset based off the new Lone Ranger film starring Johnny Depp releasing later this year. Within the new Playset, 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.
Key gameplay highlights of this new pack 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, complete 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.
The list of franchises being added to Disney Infinity is continually expanding, with the Monsters University Playset and Pirates of the Carribean Playset recently being unveiled.

The Lone Ranger Playset will contain physical figures that unlock digital content when used with the game and will be available seperately alongside Disney Infinity when it launches in late August for the Wii U, 3DS, PS3 and Xbox 360.
