! hits Nintendo Switch on Friday and comes with a massive roster of playable heroes. But Marvel Games revealed a trick up its sleeve during its San Diego Comic-Con panel on Thursday — Thor’s mischievous adopted brother Loki joined the brawler as a playable character for its release.
To unlock him, you’ll need to complete the game’s ninth chapter and complete a pretty intense boss rush in the third Infinity Trial grid (Sigma). He’s not the only unlockable character, but we won’t spoil the others here. Loki can send out clones of himself during battle and use icy attacks, according to our sister site Comicbook.com. Seems like a fun way to get our Loki fix as we await his-set series, which is as part of its lineup.
Loki will be followed into battle by stoic X-Men heroes Cyclops and Colossus on Aug. 30, and everyone in the roster will get a bunch of alternate costumes (which better include‘s Spider-Man costume) through the rest of this year and in early 2020. All that stuff will be free.
However, you’ll have to shell out for the $20 expansion pass if you want to get the three downloadable content packs with extra story content and characters. The first of these, Curse of the Vampire, adds Marvel Knights heroes Blade, Moon Knight, Morbius and Punisher on Sept. 30. And we found out on Saturday that.
After that, we’ll get a pack focusing on the X-Men (please include!) later in 2019 and a final one centered on the Fantastic Four (fingers crossed for !) next year.
They aren’t available separately, but you’ll get a chefoutfit right now if you buy the expansion pass — perfect if you decide to whip up some chimichangas for your gaming session.
