If your kids love the Disney Infinity video game, you’ll love this promotion. As of now, you can download and play the PC version of Disney Infinity for free. That’s right, for FREE. The Incredibles Play Set is now free. Just download and launch the PC game. And then play out the adventure as you try and defeat Syndrome. According to their website, you can even synch the PC game with the app version on your smartphone or tablet. That way you can play on the PC, and then resume play at the same place on your device. Neat, right?
The PC game is free, but there are a couple of catches. First, you have to pay for extra characters (about $5 each). The free PC version includes the Incredibles characters. You don’t need to purchase additional characters to play the game, but what’s the fun in that? Note: the characters you purchased for your gaming console won’t work with the PC version of the game, and vice versa.
The second catch is that will you need a decent computer. Here are the system requirements:
- Windows Vista/7/8
- 2.20 GHz Dual-Core CPU
- 2 GB RAM
- Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT 512 / ATI Radeon HD 4650 1 GB
- 16-bit DirectX 9.0c-compatible sound card
My computer is over six years old and it meets most of the requirements (see below). However, the game ran very slowly on my computer. In fact, I couldn’t really play it because it was taking too long to load. I think the problem is that my video card isn’t fast enough. That’s the only thing that didn’t meet the system requirements for the game.
My computer specs:
- Windows Vista
- AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual core processor 5600+ 2.80 GHz
- Nvidia GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
- Realtek audio
I should also mention that you need several gigs for free space on your C drive even if you install the game on a different drive. In my case, I had to free up space on my C drive even though I installed the game on a secondary drive.
