Chris Hemsworth to voice for Thor: God of Thunder SuperCheats News
SEGA today announced that Thor: God of Thunder will feature the voices of Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston. In addition to their voice over roles, the new upcoming video game offers both actors' likenesses and marks Thor’s first standalone appearance in a video game.
“Bringing in Chris and Tom to star in Thor: God of Thunder gives us AAA talent that will create a truly cinematic interactive experience,” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA America. “Mighty Thor and the trickster Loki will face off with real emotion while giving fans visual and vocal continuity between the video game and film adaptations of the Marvel franchise.”
Thor: God of Thunder will delve deep into the heroic tales of the Thor universe. Eisner Award-winning writer and lead Thor comic book author Matt Fraction brings authenticity to the narrative as a story consultant, and elevates the story beyond the comic and movie universe throughout the video game. Players will take on an array of ancient enemies and beasts from the many worlds of Norse mythology by using different battle strategies and elemental powers. The sacred Mjolnir, Thor’s legendary hammer, will allow players to command the powers of the storm: wind, thunder and lightning. By earning Valor in combat throughout the game, players will also be able to select from a wider range of abilities, acquire new attacks, powers and upgrades.
Thor: God of Thunder is scheduled for release in spring 2011 on all major platforms.
