Jane Foster, aka the Mighty Thor, comes to Marvel's Avengers today as a free update. Packing a new moveset and story, she will be playable for everyone who owns the game along with previous post-launch superheroes like Spider-Man and Black Panther. Unfortunately, though, Jane Foster doesn't bundle in a new campaign to run through.
This update is simply a new addition to the roster, meaning you'll be playing the same content just with a new moveset. And even then, she'll play very similarly to Thor himself. Much like Hawkeye and Kate Bishop, they're almost essentially the same character. Still, Jane Foster will have some unique abilities whilst wielding Mjolnir like God Tempest, which "increases ranged hammer damage and creates shockwaves with each hit".
Foster's most powerful attack is her ult named The All-Weapon. "Drawn from the pages of her Thor and Valkyrie runs, Jane sends Mjolnir to seek and destroy nearby enemy targets. Meanwhile, she calls forth the All-Weapon Undrjarn to protect her, reducing all damage taken while smiting her foes."
Of course, you'll also be able to customize the superhero with various outfits and decals. She'll also have takedowns, emotes, nameplates, and her own free Battle Pass. Inevitably, you'll probably be able to hand over real cash for some of these items too.
The PlayStation Blog post notes that beyond today's 2.5 patch, Crystal Dynamics will be adding "two new challenges as part of an ambition to advance our narrative through hero and villain-centric content". And if you're a PS Plus subscriber — no matter whether that's PS Plus Essential, PS Plus Extra, or PS Plus Premium — you can unlock free membership rewards including a suit for Ms. Marvel, three-day hero's catalysts and fragment extractors, and 500 Units.

How does Marvel's Avengers feel after many patches now? Initial reviews were not very positive, but maybe something has changed?
I'm in search of something to turn the brain off after work, run through several levels, enjoy some progression, looting and combat. Destiny 1/2, Outriders, Borderlands and different action RPGs like Diablo, POE, Torchlight has already been played millions of times.
@Tomato_Goose Its worth playing the campaign as that is really good but the loot and live service side is just bland, broken and awful. Play the campaign and the character expansion stuff like the two Hawks and Black Panther and you could get a solid fun 20-30 hours from it.
@WallyWest thank you!
My guess is that they'll pull the plug this year. There isn't even a roadmap anymore, and to my knowledge, there won't be anymore single player content. Such a shame, because there is a good game buried underneath all that live service crap.
the campaigns average but the rest just feels like bolted on garbage
@trev666 "bolted on garbage", also perfectly describes every bit of MCU media after Endgame.
The campaign is good. Good story and good gameplay. FACT.
Its a fair length too.
The stuff after is pointless yet somehow "ruins the game" for everyone but me... Ive played this game like that stuff doesnt exist. The campaign really is worth playing. I havent done the extra campaign stuff yet - DLC.
@Stocksy Don't worry. Many of us feel the exact same way. The haters are simply louder, as usual.
@naruball good. I sometimes feel like I’m crazy!
Nice trailer. She looks good. I am not 100% sure that the Avengers game had poor results just because of its end game mode. I loved Guardians of the Galaxy and I would not mind if it had some kind of content to play after you finish the game. Maybe something similar of the Battle Grid and Combat Challenges in Jedi Fallen Order. Although I admit the combat system is not the best aspect of Guardians of the Galaxy.
@Tomato_Goose if you care about trophies, some of them are unobtainable on the latest patch and have been for quite some time. I believe the only way to get them is to install an older version on PS4, earn them, update to latest, transfer save to PS5 and the trophy pops.
So, doesn't bode well that stuff that was working in the original release doesn't work in the latest patch.
@naruball @Stocksy @WallyWest I only played the opening hour or two of Avengers story, but I was enjoying what I saw...
Only complaints I had were the combat felt pretty bland, and I didn't care for the loot/gear system.
Just play guardian of the galaxy, it's a pure single player games that's way better than this game.
@Stocksy @naruball count me in..i really enjoyed my time with the avengers..i read the reviews and read all the negative trolling comments on these pages but i still bought it and enjoyed every minute i spent in it..and i aint sorry either..
@naruball For me its dissapointing that with these awsome characters spawned such a mediocre game.
I want to see what Spider-Man 2 will bring us and the liveservice part really brought the game down.
Infamous is the better superhero game for me still dissapointed they have not started a new game the expansion of the last game left me wanting more.
I really wish this took the route the GotG game took. GotG wasn’t perfect but it was a blast. A single player focused game with an added multiplayer on the side would’ve been cool. I bought this for $10 a year ago and haven’t touched it. I want to play it but I heard the platinum is practically unobtainable which is a turn off.
I wish SE didn’t try to push something the company didn’t excel at. It seems they attempted to make a huge money grabber with name recognition alone rather than build the game with a winning formula SE has but do some switches here and there to make it feel fresh to the developers and players.
@naruball Or the "haters" have higher standards? Game is trash.
The character nobody asked for and the character that'll continue to sink with the ship just like the others.
@RedRiot193 Nope. Just calling any game "trash" shows you can't be taken seriously.
@KidBoruto the last part of the campaign is, imo, the best. Overall I'd rate the game an 8/10 for the single player content and a 3/10 for the multiplayer.
@naruball Another complaint I've heard is that all of the enemies (aside from bosses) are usually robots or androids/machines
Is it true there aren't that many human enemies?
@KidBoruto It is indeed true. Most of the time you're fighting robots. It's one of the things I didn't like much about the game. But at the same time, they are so different from one another that there is considerable variety there, in terms of how they attack, how strong they are, how to they can be beat, etc, just like in games with all human enemies. Also, most bosses are awesome and thankfully not robots.
@naruball Am I supposed to just type an essay as to why it's trash? You wouldn't agree with it anyways so what would be the point of that? You're clearly convinced this dumbster fire of a game is somehow good.
@Flaming_Kaiser I know what you mean. With so many amazing characters, the game had insane potential that was wasted. But at least the game didn't turn out bad and I, personally, found it very enjoyable, so overall I'm pleased (though not thrilled) with the result.
I'm currently playing Spider-man on ps5 and don't see what was so amazing (forgive the pun) about it. So many samey missions and boring quests. Sure, I'm enjoying the game, but there is a ton of room for improvement there as well, yet it didn't attract much negativity.
@naruball For me its lot more fun but thats me. Liveservice ruins games and the funny part here it shows that nobody says the liveservice part of the game makes it better. So for me its a leave it alone i dont want them to get rewarded or let them think we want this crap.
@Flaming_Kaiser the problem is that Guardians also didn't perform well, so the message isn't clear.
@RedRiot193 the irony is strong with this one. Thanks for the laugh.
@naruball I don't know. To me what seems funny is you thinking this game was ever good. And somehow "Haters" are evil and have no opinion.
@RedRiot193 so not only are you commenting on a game you dont like which is well within your right to do so even though its making you sound like a right donkey but you are having a pop at somebody for liking a game you dont..the shame of it..how dare they? Get over it buddy as i'm sure there must be something more devastating happening in your world other than people actually enjoying the avengers game..
@naruball shame on you for enjoying the avengers..how can you show your face here ever again?
@Northern_munkey Seems you clearly just want to jump in mid converstaion without reading any prior responses. I'll help you out since you seem to struggle with that.
Naruballs comment "Don't worry. Many of us feel the exact same way. The haters are simply louder, as usual."
As for liking the game in general. You can like something all you want. When did I say you can't? Saying something is good and enjoying something are two different things. People like to smoke that doesn't make it good right? I have played many games that I've enjoyed, and I know they are utter trash. i.e. Aliens colonial marines, code vein, mass effect andromeda, avengers etc. So if you want to continue the white knight stuff you're more than welcome to, but context helps doesn't it?
@RedRiot193 nah not really..white knighting? Really? Dont like what i say or my "white knighting" then just click the ignore button..problem solved..
@Northern_munkey See now that's ironic. Especially considering you could have done the same exact thing yet YOU responded to me. I also like that that was the only thing you took from what I typed. You're definitely consistent on your lack of reading I'll give you that.
@RedRiot193 "I have played many games that I've enjoyed, and I know they are utter trash. i.e. Aliens colonial marines, code vein, mass effect andromeda, avengers etc." This bit really undermines your argument with naruball...you are saying on one hand that the avengers is a dumpster fire of a game but on the other hand you enjoyed playing it...so by your logic you enjoy playing "trash" games but you want to pour scorn on them at the same time..i'm sure there is some pyschological term for this but i'm buggered if i can think what its called..anyhow thanks for the laugh out loud moment 👍
@Northern_munkey Seriously dude learn to read. I've literally given you an example but you want to graze over points and just pick ones that fit your argument. I'll let you figure it out by scrolling up and re-reading very slowly and carefully this time. Then come back to me. It's not that hard. That or move on because you're clearly feeling some type of way.
@RedRiot193 i've read the whole thread..everybodys comments and i cant see what you are driving at here.."Don't worry. Many of us feel the exact same way. The haters are simply louder, as usual." Was naruballs response to the comment made by stocksy where he/she said "The stuff after is pointless yet somehow "ruins the game" for everyone but me... " so naruball was saying that we all agree the main game was really quite good but the end game was a bit naff..but the haters just have to say it that little bit louder and cruder than your average person (its their nature)..we know your response which has led us here..i can read dude and i'm well aware of what irony and context are..you are a conumdrum to me so i think its best we agree to disagree and part ways on a somewhat reasonable manner..
@Northern_munkey You should have moved on ages ago or not bothered to respond since you added nothing. Saying "The haters are simply louder, as usual" is condradicting on what was said after. There's no this part is good but endgame bad therefore game is good. That's not how video games work. They are reviewed as a whole.
Also this part "but the haters just have to say it that little bit louder and cruder than your average person (its their nature)" Yeah it's not like they spent 60 plus dollars on an avengers game that flopped hard. Totally unwarranted /s. On top of generalizing. Literally why this whole thing started.
@RedRiot193 you make no sense..look i'm leaving it here as we are just going round in circles..no need to reply just enjoy whatever you enjoy..
@Northern_munkey Can't help you with that. Learning to read helps.
@naruball That's a very fair point! I'll be sure to keep in mind whenever I finally give Avengers another chance.
@Northern_munkey hahaha. How can I show our faces indeed!
