Thor’s famous and heavenly look from the 2012 crossover epic The Avengers is the newest Marvel Cinematic Universe outfit to join Marvel’s Avengers.
Thor’s legendary armor will soon be accessible in Marvel’s Avengers, as shown in the 2012 Marvel Cinematic Universe film The Avengers. Iron Man, Captain America, Black Panther, and Thor are among the playable heroes in Crystal Dynamics’ multiplayer action game. The number of MCU-inspired costumes in Marvel’s Avengers has progressively increased over the last year, even though the game started without them.
Marvel‘s Avengers is based on a live-service model, with new content being released regularly for free. Players will be able to experience new playable heroes, new places, and new narratives due to this support. Meanwhile, a robust microtransaction system allows users to trade real-world dollars for cosmetic things like outfits, nameplates, and takedown animations. The beloved MCU skins from Marvel’s Avengers are only available on this Marketplace, which means that if you want to dress up as Iron Man 2’s suitcase armor or Captain America’s outfit from Avengers: Endgame, you’ll have to pay real money. Marvel’s Avengers contains $3,000 in cosmetics, which has irritated many fans who want to personalize Earth’s Mightiest Heroes freely.
Marvel’s Avengers has released Thor’s armor from 2012’s The Avengers through Twitter as the game’s latest live-action replica. Chris Hemsworth dons the famous gear in the beloved team-up film’s third act when Earth’s Mightiest Heroes gather in New York City to battle the alien Chitauri. The God of Thunder’s armor, like the game’s previous MCU cosmetics, is faithfully recreated in Marvel’s Avengers down to the slightest detail. The model’s hair and light beard are based on Hemsworth’s appearance in the 2012 film, and Mjolnir, the game’s original hammer, has been redesigned. On December 9, Thor’s old MCU look will be available in Marvel’s Avengers.

While many fans have chastised Marvel’s Avengers for its heavy reliance on microtransactions, developer Crystal Dynamics recently introduced a new mechanism that allows players to gain outfits without spending real money. The brand-new Shipments system works similarly to a typical loot box, with the exception that players are shown exactly what they’ll get when they buy it. Shipments can also be purchased with Units, which can be earned simply by playing the game, rather than Credits, which can be purchased with real-world money. This allows players to gain cosmetic goods just by playing the game. However, some products, like MCU uniforms, remain exclusive to the Marketplace.
Marvel‘s Avengers has never really recovered from its shaky launch in 2020, but Crystal Dynamics appears dedicated to listening to fans and improving the game. MCU skins have been a popular request for months, and their attention to detail and fidelity to the live-action series does not disappoint. Thor’s armored form from The Avengers (2012) is faithfully recreated in the game, allowing players to unleash their inner thunder.
Marvel’s Avengers is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox One S, PC, and Google Stadia.
