Remember the rumor we ran over the weekend regarding Marvel’s Avengers Spider-Man being in the game but exclusive to PlayStation platforms? Well, as it turns out, it is indeed happening!
Announced by Jeff Adams, Crystal Dynamics Associate Art Directo via the PlayStation Blog, the studio announced that Spider-Man will have his own unique skill tree to level up, and with Spidey joining the Avengers, his gadgets will be getting a boost from Hank Pym, SHIELD, Stark Industries, and more.
As for Spidey’s looks in Marvel’s Avengers, it’ll be influenced by the original design more than anything else.
Of course, there will be alternate outfits for webhead to suit up in as well. Spider-Man will debut via an in-game event which was further detailed by Crystal Dynamics.
A Sensational Celebration
When Spider-Man comes to our stable of heroes, we’ll be marking his debut with an in-game event that will introduce him to the wider world of Marvel’s Avengers. The event is comprised of a series of unique challenges for the hero to take on, testing his abilities, and yielding some exciting results. And like the rest of our heroes in Marvel’s Avengers, we will offer multiple cosmetic outfits and gameplay experience options, so you can make your vision of the wall crawler a reality.
Spidey will join the Marvel’s Avengers roster at no additional cost in “early 2021” on PlayStation platforms (PS4, PS5).
Shocked by this announcement? Personally, I’m not given Sony has the film rights to Spider-Man, and the compay does have a marketing deal with Square Enix regarding the game.
Marvel’s Avengers will fly out this September 4 on the PS4, Xbox One and PC, and the beta will be available next week for PlayStation gamers.
