‘Thor: The Dark World – The Official Game’ Launches On iOS And Android [Video]

Thor The Dark World The Official Game
Gameloft

For fans who can’t wait until November 8 to see Thor chuck his mystical mallet at bad guys spanning the nine realms in theaters, Gameloft’s Thor: The Dark World – The Official Game may just sate the ol’ Midgardian appetite for Mjolnir-izing. Now available for free on iOS and Android devices, the new action title approximates the events of the Thor: The Dark World movie in a battle against Malekith the Dark Elf and his evil forces, who are seemingly *snort* Hel-bent on destroying every brach of Yggdrasil.

Thor won’t be alone in his hacking and slashing through Dark Elves, Jotun, Marauders and Rock Giants. The game calls on players to “train and fight alongside” allies such as Sif, Heimdall and the Warriors Three, plus seven varieties of specialized Asgardian troops known as Einherjar to aid Thor in his battles.

Along the way players will have the chance to upgrade Thor’s skills, which include teleportation, healing and all kinds of fighting techniques. Mjolnir itself can also be upgraded as part of unlocking 10 hammer and armor sets which re-skin the cinematic Chris Helmsworth Thor as Ultimate Thor, Beta Ray Bill and other versions of the hero (plus Odin).

Outside the game’s core adventuring players can also fight in other modes, including Survival Areans that provide endless enemies to extinguish.

All of these features make the new title seem like an improvement over the last Thor movie iOS game… and maybe the critically-panned console version of Thor: God of Thunder as well (although CA did like the Nintendo DS game quite a bit).

Though the title is free, like Gameloft’s Iron Man 3 – The Official Game, it’s freemium… meaning players can shell out for upgrades and such to speed up their progress. Hopefully those who download the title can hammer through it without much freemium fuss, though.
