This fall, the comic book’s god of thunder will be back on the big screen, complete with Mjölnir, his trusty hammer. As is the tradition in the gaming world, a new title will be released in conjunction with the movie’s launch. Gameloft, in collaboration with Marvel, will release Thor: The Dark World – The Official Game in the App Store this fall.
The game will be a free-to-play (of course, it’s Gameloft) adventure game where players take on the role of Thor as he fights against evil and brings order to the Nine Worlds. Fight against Marauders and Dark Elves in more than 100 missions using special, iconic combat moves that Thor is known for.
Explore the worlds of Asgard and Jotunheim as you team up with friends in multiplayer cooperative battles. Fans of Marvel Comics will be happy to know that famed comic writer Christopher Yost pens the storyline that Thor follows.
“We are delighted to continue our excellent collaboration with Marvel,” said Gameloft’s Vice President of Marketing & Licensing, Karine Kaiser. “Developing official games from Marvel’s cinematic blockbusters and bringing the fans an immersive experience in a Super Hero world inspires us every time.”
“Thor: The Dark World – The Official Game will allow fans of the franchise to play as one of Marvel’s most iconic Super Heroes in a game of epic scope and beauty.” said Javon Frazier, Vice President of Games Marketing at Marvel. “With this new game, we are further expanding the successful relationship between Marvel and Gameloft.”
Thor: The Dark World – The Official Game is preparing for release this fall alongside the opening weekend of the epic movie.
