Today, Kabam debuted all-new content themed after the upcoming Marvel Studios film, “Thor: Love and Thunder.” The Champion Reveal trailer introduces two new Champions, inspired by the film, coming to the popular mobile fighter – Gorr & Valkyrie.
Celebrating the premiere of “Thor: Love and Thunder” on July 8th, 2022 all new and existing players who download Marvel Contest of Champions and login can add either Thor (Ragnarok) or Thor (Jane Foster) to their rosters, beginning July 8th through August 2nd 2022.
Gorr the God-Butcher grew up in a harsh world, where belief in the gods kept his people from falling into despair. But after his family perished in 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.
Gorr will arrive in-game on July 14th and Valkyrie on July 28th, 2022.
From June 29th through July 5th, 2022 a special login calendar will be available in-game where players can receive Champion Shards. Additionally, Marvel Contest of Champions will be holding their Spectacular Summoner Sale beginning July 1st through July 5th, 2022.
