A whole new character or a simple reskin?

Like Spider-Man, Jane Foster is added to the game’s cast without a new campaign, while Hawkeye, Kate Bishop or even Black Panther were entitled to it. Here, we are only entitled to a simple comic book cinematic which nevertheless details a very interesting background since our Mighty Thor comes from a parallel dimension in which Thor died, which drove Odin crazy who stopped defending the others worlds. Finally, it is by a combination of circumstances that the new owner of Mjolnir finds herself in the dimension of the Avengers alongside which she will fight. Thus, we are entitled to a set of quests that accompanies the arrival of a character, but not a tutorial dedicated to him while all the other heroes were entitled to it.

But of course, the most important thing with the arrival of a new hero is above all his gameplay. Until then, you have to recognize that each character had their own gameplay, even characters like Hawkeye and Kate Bishop who you might have thought were identical, before you realize that they both have a unique approach, Clint being more of a support and his sidekick a pure DPS (role which consists in inflicting damage). But here, Jane Foster has gameplay identical to that of Thor, with a few (too) slight exceptions. When it comes to her basic hits, as well as her combos, the only noticeable difference being that Jane sends Mjolnir farther ahead of her and uses lightning when the hammer hits the enemy. But when we take a look at the skill tree, we realize that the vast majority of his moves come straight from Thor. Even when it comes to his two heroic skills, they work the same way as the Thunder God’s.

Ultimately, the major difference between the two characters lies in their ultimate skills. As Thor used the Bifrost to smash the ground hard, Jane abandons Mjolnir to attack all nearby enemies and uses Undrjarn, the Omni-Weapon, to defend herself. Later, by unlocking skill points, it is possible to make Mjolnir spin around the character to inflict damage on nearby enemies. The other big difference is that Jane can tag multiple opponents with her hammer so that when thrown, it hits multiple targets at once, like Captain America and his shield. Slight modifications therefore, which do not fundamentally change the gameplay of Thor which we already know well since the launch of the game in September 2020, and which is very clearly inspired by Kratos in the last God of War (2018) who fights using his Leviathan ax.

You will understand, but this update 2.5 of Marvel’s Avengers is therefore quite meager in terms of novelties and contents. Apart from what we have described so far, we can mention the fact that Kamala Khan gets a costume inspired by the series Miss Marvel which is currently ending on Disney+, while Thor already has his outfit which can be seen in Thor: Love and Thunder. As for Jane Foster, we find in the shop a costume that comes straight from the comics The Mighty Thor of which she is the heroine. In all cases, we invite you to form your own opinion if you have the Xbox Game Pass because we remind you that the title is available in Microsoft’s subscription service. That said, we hope that the next characters that seem to have leaked, namely Miss Hulk and Bucky Barnes (the Winter Soldier), will be accompanied by more novelties to lose to the title to continue over time.
