‘Marvel Contest of Champions’ Adds Valkyrie And Gorr From ‘Thor: Love And Thunder’
by Gary Catig
You can tell that Thor: Love and Thunder is almost here with all the different tie-ins. Last week, Hot Toys revealed an all-new premium figure resembling Chris Hemsworth from the upcoming film. Now, Marvel Contest of Champions is receiving movie-themed content in the next update.
First, new and existing players who download the popular mobile fighting game and login can add either Thor (Ragnarok) or Thor (Jane Foster) to their roster. This offer is good from July 8 to August 2.
In addition, the two next champions to be made available are Gorr and Valkyrie. The former will arrive July 14 with the latter arriving July 28. Check out their character bios below.
Gorr the God-Butcher grew up on a harsh world, where belief in the gods kept his people from falling to despair. But after his family perished to the deadly environment, Gorr became disillusioned and swore vengeance against the gods that never came to help him or his people. He later obtained the powerful Necrosword, and gained the ability to control dark magic and shadowy constructs. He uses these powers to wreak havoc, destruction, and death on any and all that would call themselves gods.
Former leader of the mighty Valkyrior, and recently crowned sovereign of New Asgard, Valkyrie has long been a bastion to the Asgardian people against the evils of the Nine Realms. Possessing superior strength (even among Asgardians) and armed with the powerful weapons, training, and tactics of the Valkyrior, she is an excellent leader, and a steadfast warrior. Her conviction, though scarred by loss, is stronger than ever, and she is ready and willing to protect the Asgadians of the Battlerealm.
Marvel Contest of Champions is currently available for download.
