After last year was somewhat shallow Disney Infinity 3.0 is a little bigger on Gamescom this year, with several tabels to try both the toybox and the Star Wars levels. Could take some pictures (as nobody stopped me) of the new skill tree which seems to divide in four sections. However nobody could tell me if there's more than level 20 to achieve (all character are on level 20). Unfortunately, Olaf isn't playable, though he's on one of the plattforms. But Mickey, Minnie and some Inside Out characters are.
Rocket Fire (BobaFett) (seems to be the special ability/attack of each character)
Range Attacks (BobaFett)
Then there is a more detailed overview of the character abilities (like is his ability jump, strength, flying etc)
I only could take those pictures while I was playing, I cannot play and make a video, I'm afraid. And of course I cannot just put someone else playing online. There was no toybox menu, I was surprised I could access the skills.
The toybox games are bigger with more things to do, and the camera is near as in the 'normal' game. So you can see your character and the sidekick better. Sidekicks now look like the townspeople and have different skills and abilities that you can improve as well.
Must be my lucky day: Finally Olaf was on the first spot and playable. Was able to film a little (sorry for the bad quality, it's not easy to play with one hand and holding the camera in another ) He's small, like Rocket Raccoon, has a normal attack with his arm, a range attack with 'firing' snow and the super jump ability
Sidekicks level up now, too
First video shows his special attack. Somehow involves his summer-umbrella
Second video shows general toybox gameplay:
I also have pictures of his grid/skill tree, let me know if you want to see them
Lucky indeed as today it was Thor again and not Olaf who was playable So I gave Yoda a try, unfortunately his special attack could not be activated (the bar/box would never fill completely), but his sword fight is really cool with an awesome finishing move.
Skill tree: Can't say for sure as I could compare Thor's skill tree only from memory, but the first picture shows his health skills. My impression is, they are the same skills, only on separate grids. Playing felt pretty much the same, attacks and flying were just what we know. But maybe the additional skills/moves/attacks were not yet activated or unlocked.
My last update from GC. I could play through an entire toybox stage and it was surprisingly short (though I didn't do any sidequests). Much shorter than the Kyln or Merida stages. Dunno if it is just a tutorial stage and therefore shorter. Boss in this stage was Davy Jones, hardly a challenge for the lvl2 0 Black Widow.
Yet it was fun and if the other stages are a little bigger (or if there are just many more of them) it will be worth it!
