Mighty Thor in Marvel Avengers video game on Xbox

The Marvel’s Avengers video game received a free update today that added the character of Jane Foster’s Might Thor for all players to play immediately on Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and Xbox One console families, Windows PC, and all other supported platforms.

The Mighty Thor plays similar to the OG Thor with the ability to fly and a variety of ranged attacks using Mjolnir, Thor’s hammer.

“In Marvel’s Avengers, Jane is torn from an alternate timeline through a rift in space-time caused by Tachyon Anomalies,” Crystal Dynamics’ Meagan Marie explains in a new blog post. “In her original timeline, Jane became the Goddess of Thunder when she took up the mantle from Thor, who in his grief gave up Mjolnir after the A-Day tragedy.

“Jane Foster is voiced by the talented Zehra Fazal, known for her work across video games and television. In addition to collectable intel documents and character banter, the Mighty Thor’s story is told through our brand-new animatic “Marvel’s Avengers – The Mighty Thor: Out of Time” illustrated by veteran Marvel artist Takeshi Miyazawa.”

In addition to the addition of Jane Foster, today’s update also unlocks two new challenges. Brief details on these challenges can be read here.
