Thor God of Thunder Game Guide: Thor’s Skills and Special Abilities

In Thor: God of Thunder, the video game developed by Liquid Entertainment, the main character of the game is Thor, Odin’s son.

Using his powerful Mjolnir hammer, Thor is capable to control the powers of thunder, lighting and wind. Each power allows him to perform various special moves and attacks, while fighting against his enemies.

Additionally, in the game, players are able to upgrade Thor’s skills, making his special attacks even more powerful, or increasing his attributes, such as his health.

Thor’s skills can be accessed in the game’s menu or by pressing the Back button. These special abilities are divided in six categories (trees) and each upgrade requires a fixed amount of valor points. Some upgrades also have special requirements, while others don’t.

The guide below teaches players how to upgrade Thor’s powers, and how many valor points are required for each upgrade. Furthermore, players will be able to find out, how each upgrade will affect Thor’s attributes and his attacks.

NOTE: Some moves were extracted from the game, while playing on Xbox 360. Because of this, PlayStation 3 owners can replace the following keys:

X (on Xbox 360) = Square (on PS3)
Y (on Xbox 360) = Triangle (on PS3)
A (on Xbox 360) = X (on PS3)
B (on Xbox 360) = Circle (on PS3)
