A future update to Marvel’s Avengers will add Jane Foster as The Mighty Thor, a new playable hero. The new hero is two updates away, as part of Update 2.5, so for now the studio is just teasing his arrival, rather than sharing much specific information. Along with the reveal, he also detailed the upcoming 2.4 update.
According to the update, Mighty Thor will share some common traits with Thor’s existing design, but will also have his own set of moves and items. That would seem to make her and Thor similar to the two Hawkeye designs, Clint Barton and Kate Bishop, who were introduced in a two-part expansion story. The timing for Jane Foster was not announced, but the 2.4 update is targeting May, so it will be sometime after that.
The timing of the announcement, at least, seems to be strategically paired with the recent trailer drop for Thor: Love And Thunder. That trailer ended with our first look at Natalie Portman as Jane Foster’s Thor, complete with Mjolnir. You can check out more Easter eggs and details in our full Thor: Love And Thunder trailer breakdown.
Most of the blog broke down the details of the 2.4 update, which will focus on system improvements and in-game events. The update will rework the event rewards so that each event provides gear from different sets, the reward structure of event missions to earn cosmetics, provide higher power level gear rewards for meta goals, and adjust meta rewards to provide equipment to your entire list. More details will be closer to the release date of the update.
