Over on YouTube, Gameloft released a gameplay trailer for their upcoming title, Thor: The Dark World. The game is set to be released around the same time the movie hits theaters, later this year in the fall. You play as Thor, attempting to restore order to the Nine Worlds in over 100 missions. You can use the God of Thunder’s “iconic” combat moves, as well as take control over the Warriors Three. To top it off, the game will be free to download from Google Play once released.
I think I can safely say we are more excited for the movie than we are the game, but it looks nice regardless. We’ll keep you posted on its release.
