Players Are Loving Thor MCU Skin

Players’ perception of the new Marvel’s Avengers Thor MCU skin is relatively positive. The new skin is inspired by Thor’s rugged look from Thor: Ragnarok that features gladiator armor, red face paint, and a haircut straight out of Stan Lee’s comics. This look is a departure from Thor’s usual long hair look. In addition, this is Thor’s third skin in the game; the first being the look on Endgame and the other being the original Thor look.

However, fans were quick to notice the absence of the metal helmet Thor has in the franchise. Some fans expect the helmet would make an appearance in this Marvel’s Avengers Thor MCU skin but the absence is not generally detested. Similar instances have happened in the past where other Thor skins have missing elements like Thor’s gut as seen in Endgame. Furthermore, who can forget the cosmetic blunder done on Thor’s original outfits?

Going back to players’ perceptions, Thor’s new look is receiving positive feedback but not so much for the other patch notes. Some fans say there isn’t much in the update in terms of elements of surprise, gameplay, and other features as shown in the reply of Twitter use @TheChronicJoe below.

Nonetheless, Marvel’s Avengers game is still one Marvel fans just can’t get enough of.
