New, 54 comments

It's only been a few months since Marvel shocked comic book fans by revealing that Thor's hammer and his title were being passed on to a woman for the first time ever. Not one to be left behind, games have embraced the new character as well in a surprising place.

Thor: Goddess of Thunder will be added to Marvel Puzzle Quest as the game's 52nd hero, as it celebrates its one-year anniversary. The new Thor will be a legendary rank character, meaning she'll be particularly hard to get from random rewards. However, all players will have a chance to test her in a player-versus-player matchup being added to the game on Oct. 17.

The one-year anniversary celebration will also include a playable Devil Dinosaur and reruns of previous in-game events that were voted fan favorites in community polls.

While Thor is the big news here for anyone who's not already a fan of Marvel Puzzle Quest, Marvel and publisher D3 shared some cool stats about the game's first year with Polygon. You can check those out below.
