Disney Universe Power Up Bonuses Explained
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Disney Interactive Studios has revealed some new information about power up bonuses in Disney Universe, a fast-paced multiplayer action adventure game currently in development. In the game players will have the chance to play as Disney and Pixar characters and engage in quests, battle enemies, and solve puzzles in a universe populated with worlds inspired by the company's animated and live action films.

Power-ups are bonuses given to the player by the game’s helper AI, known as VIC (Virtual Information Cube). They take the form of a blue cube that floats around the arena, and when picked up, give the player a special ability for a short time. Some of these powers include giving the player boxing gloves, a ray gun, or a medusa head, allowing them to turn enemies to stone.

In addition, there are also negative power-ups, called curses, that are sent by the game’s villain, Hex, to hinder players in their progression. Curses take the form of red ‘Hex’ cubes and chase players around the arena for a limited time before despawning. If a player comes in contact with a curse, they are afflicted with a negative effect like being turned into a chicken or having their head transform into a ticking time bomb. Many curses can be passed from player to player and encourage ad hoc competition and mayhem.
